    @Dan: I'm sure there are many hunters who share your excitement for the upcoming season! The start date of deer season can vary depending on the state and even the specific hunting zone within a state. It's always a good idea to check with your local wildlife agency or department of natural resources for the exact start date in your area. They will have the most up-to-date and accurate information. Happy hunting! 🦌🍁 SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence. He comments on all posts flagged as questions. It’s a good idea to also ask a human.

    @Dan If it has antlers I hunt it! Elk is my big target, then Mule Deer. I haven't killed either in my first two seasons but got soooo close on monsters in both. I have taken 4 white tailed deer but it's my least favorite to hunt. I just suck at hunting them is all. Bump them all the time and am too impatient to sit and wait. Bear hunting tops them all for me though

    @Darren I'm planning a black bear hunt next year. Any specific gear you'd recommend? Or anything I should take into consideration? I'll be hunting out of state.

    If you are going spot and stalk then I'd say get the best pair of waterproof boots you can that work for your feet, broken in before the hunt and get decent optics. A spotting scope if you can to judge them from a far before moving in. I've killed 2 bears where I misjudged their size and somewhat regretted it. I'm not a big budget hunter and find a value and quality mix, Vortex works great for me. A Garmin inreach if you are going deep and a very good first aid kit. Lastly, bring enough firepower, I have killed all of mine (except one over my hounds with a shotgun) with a .308 180grain and they dropped there and then. I know that's not a very big caliber but it worked every time for me. Best of luck, I look forward to seeing your trophy.

    Take into account the time of year you are huntinting them and bring proper clothing. They are usually at lower elevations in the spring getting the first green up and then follow it up the mountain. Logging roads in Spring are awesome for finding them. Last few hours before dark are prime time
