With spring right around the corner, the thought of big arizona black bears has returned. I plan a backcountry bear hunt every year and this year is no different. I'm tentatively scheduled to strap on my backpack and head into the Galiuro Wilderness towards the end of April barring any season closures due
to the FHO being met.
Tate and I made this trip last year with mixed reviews. Incredible country, lots of old sign, but no bear sightings. I'm hoping that more bears will be roaming from their dens in the month of April. I will keep you updated as the hunt nears.
