Black Bear Hunting Gear List (spot-and-stalk)

A spot-and-stalk style black bear hunt can be a tough one to plan for. It’s usually a crazy mix of active and inactive with lots of time spent behind the glass. Then, once a good bear is found, it’s “game on” and you will probably be sweating… a lot. Add to that the weather, which can range widely from 70 degrees and sunny to below zero. Packing accordingly can be a hard thing to do so that’s why we put together this black bear hunting gear list.
