Bear Hunting

I have never been bear hunting since my funds are limited to where I can travel. I googled and found that New Mexico and Arkansas has bear season. Both have a sort of quota/lottery system and I was wondering if anyone on here has ever hunted bear in those 2 states. I thought of checking out some outfitters but crap they charge alot. And a very old friend of mine that was also a hunting and fishing buddy pass away last year so I am also looking to hunt with someone too since I think it would be very foolish to hunt a bear by yourself. Now this year is a no-go so I am wanting to plan for next year.


Lots o bear hunting up here in Canada. We have a lottery and a season for the black bears and a lottery for the Grizzleys.
