Without baiting..where it is legal, bears are pretty much a "stumble on" sort of thing. Zero in on access points to agricultural crops, mast crops, eTtc. The occ. bear on a game camera is most frequently just a wandering bear which could be counties away by now.
We carried inexpensive tarps with grommets and a piece of rope to wrap it up in and help sled it. They are miserable to drag. If you plan on eating it (and they are VERY good eating) clean and cool it immediatly just like a deer, and keep it out of the sun. The black coat soaks up the heat and can quickly turn the meat, with its high fat content.
