    @Steve is that public land? Do you know of like an outfitter that does it?

  • Joe's avatar

    We don’t have any bears in Tn. 🤣

    @Rachel Way more fun to do it without an outfitter. You’ll learn a lot more that way and save money. Like the first one commented: around Tellico. Just don’t go in Tellico: it’s a bear sanctuary and bear hunting is off limits.

    @Rachel I solo hunted hard in eastern Tn close to Virginia border. Never saw a bear, but found sign, public land. It was hard, the hounds hunters live for the season & best way I’ve found out how in Tn

    @Kevin Stay away from places with easy access and you’ll see the bears.

    @Cameron it was easy access only. I went deep deep in. It was tough, but wonderful at the same time

    @Kevin There’s a spot I have marked on the map you could try. It’s extremely steep and surrounded by peaks.

    @Cameron I will be spot & stalking in Montana next Spring.

    Rachel, it's mostly public land and I am not aware of any outfitters in that area. I have friends that hunt bears on the NC side of that area.
