Bear season continues through the end of May for spring bear tag holders in the Hood and White River WMUs. Spring bears often prefer foraging on new grasses and forb growth. Bring a good pair of binoculars or spotting scope and glass open south facing hillsides. Predator calling can be productive, particularly if you know a bear is using an area. Successful hunters will need to check in with an ODFW office within 10 days of harvesting your bear. The bear head must be unfrozen, and propping the mouth open with an object will help biologists to remove the tooth necessary for aging.
