In some states/countries, there are many different things that they do for leisure. Some go for camping but there are no safe places to go camping in the woods. Bear hunting in Utah mountains have been made legal but only in specific areas. This has seen many people come from far and beyond to come to the camps for the hunting.
There are many types of bears. The one found in Utah is the black bear. It has become so popular that people take holidays just for that. Dogs have been trained to help in the hunt and people go for trips just in search of them. They put up in camps and wait for days until they sport the bears, following them till they get them.
The campers can choose to go out as a group to hunt but it is always advised to use the guides who are available in camps. They are trained and licensed to act as tour guides in the camps hence using them is easier as they understand the area well, they know the right outfit to use when going out, they also know the right places to look so they do not waste time going around as they have studied the area well.
Booking the tents that are already set up there is an option that the campers have. Some prefer to come with their own tents but as there are packages that are offered when one books the tents, it is easier to use them. The packages include meals, instead of carrying food and cooking utensils, clean water. Since it sometimes snows at night, they are advised to have warm cloths and warm sleeping bags.
Safety precautions have been put in place in case of any mishaps. One has to make sure they clean the places where they take their meals well so as not to leave particles of food that could attract the bears. Proper lighting should be put at night. Make sure you have the authorities contacts so as to report if you see a bear around. Kids should always be accompanied by adults to avoid wandering far into the camps alone.
There are certain things that are used in bear hunting such as, guns, spears, bow and arrows. Traps can also be set to attract them. When hunting, it is important to move swiftly with minimal noise and cloths that are worn should not rustle/or make any noise as this may startle them and make them runaway.
in that case when a bear is spotted near the camps, they can be killed for security purposes and the authorities notified of the event. Climbing up a tree can be dangerous as they can climb up after you and there will be nowhere to run.
All in all we see that bear hunting is fun if you follow all the instructions given and hire a trained guide to make work easier for you. It is also cheaper as you do not have to do your own cooking, or carry a tent.
