Black Bear Hunting Catskills

Unread post by easternhunter28 »

Hello All, looking to make it down to the catskills next fall for the early season bear. Has anyone had any luck this year or seen bears around?

Obviously not looking for speicific cooridantes but anyone have a general idea of public land access that might lead to at least seeing a bear?

Black bears can be seen in many places in the Catskills. But, most are seen at sunrise. You can try locations around Peekamoose or other places in the Slide Mtn Wilderness. There are also seen often around North-South Lake Campgrounds.
