i haven't yet. i'll be heading into season 3 of actually hunting for them specifically up in Maine. couple guys i go with have taken over a dozen each. some of those bears were in excess of 300lbs. I know of a couple others that hunt the catskills and have gotten a handful. hopefully my day will come.

I have shot 2 bear thru the years,  one in New Brunswick Canada many moons ago, and I shot this sow pictured 10 years ago (2013)  on my property.  My uncle had seen her that morning in the dark and I ended up shooting her late that afternoon at opposite end of my property heading back towards my uncles direction. She was a big sow, weighing 230lbs. Bullet struck off shoulder and exited her head, if you look closely you can see the exit hole in her head, just in front of her ear. Have had many other bears on my cameras since but have not seen any in person. Lots of corn by me, the meat was incredibly good.

Never seen a bear while hunting in NY, but would love to shoot one. Especially with the bow. It took everything in me not to shoot a nice black bear with bow under 15 yards in CT last year on 11/8. I really hope someday CT gets a season. We are overrun. 

I love color phase bears. The closest I came to booking a bear hunt was idaho where id have a chance at a color phase rather than Maine with just blacks.

My dad killed a nice black bear sow in maine with dogs. I want to say late 90's.

Ever kill a bear or 3?

Post pics and stories here.    

I’ve killed exactly one; Saskatchewan 1997 IIRC.   Hunted them in Alaska too but was unsuccessful.   
 

Let’s see what you have, lugnuts.   :)

 

Pic Law?   I wanted to hunt grizzly with a recurve until I saw the movie the Revenant.   Now I am scared to death even with a M5o.  Lol

I’ve killed 2 around 04/05 back to back years. 320 something pound Adirondacks, was inedible but I was young and didn’t take care of it properly. The next year I killed 130lb sow did everything the way you’re supposed to and was also inedible. Have had probably 50+ chances since and if one attacked me I would try talking it out of eating me before I shot it. Some people love bear meat, I’m not one of them.

Interesting.  The only bear I ate was a small sow one of the guys at camp in canada killed.  I liked it better than venison and that was grilled.  I have heard dump bears are inedible.

Both of mine were killed a long ways from any dumps. I’ve tried it many times since and have only like it once but not enough for me to try shooting another.

I shot a sow in Potter County PA almost 20 years ago (man I'm getting old). I was hunting with a couple of guys on a 1600 acre lease we had. One older guy that was a big time bear hunter had hit a boar earlier in the day. We were trying to get around it when I happened upon the bear I got. It was quite a drag to get it up out of the ravine it went down into.

I was on a Maine bear hunt when my buddy took one.  Cool woods-darkest place I have ever been was in the Maine bear woods. Didn't love the hunt over bait-sticky sweet smells and beaver castor blowing in my face. And didn't enjoy the meat or thought of trichinosis within the meat.  
I would love to watch one in the woods while deer hunting but doubt I'd take a shot.
