I always love watching Randy hunt black bears up in Alaska and for some reason I think it would be so cool to do it like him, and find the bears by either paddling around, drifting down a river, or having a small motor. I guess my question is, has anyone done this in any of the western states? If anyone has, what state and how did it go? I haven't done much research on this yet, when it comes to each states regulation and if this is allowed. This is just an idea that popped into my head and am just curious if anyone has done this. Went bear hunting in Idaho a couple years ago and I'm ready to try it again, but would love to do it from the water.
