I’m a non-res also in the process of planning my first unguided Idaho spot and stalk hunt. Purchased an OTC general season deer tag but am unable to make the trip next fall so now looking to use the tag on a black bear this spring instead. The tag is for unit 51 (Lemhi Elk Zone - Upper Snake Region). This will be my first ever Bear Hunt and I would like to know if it’s worth my time to hunt this unit for black bear. I’ve got low expectations and enjoy camping just as much as hunting so I’m fine with low harvest odds.

Any advice/recommendations are greatly appreciated. Currently in the military on the east coast so making plans for a trip like this doesn’t come easy.
You can only use that deer tag on a bear if the deer season is open at the same time. So no go for spring use

Start buy reading regulations, once you turn in your tag and buy a blackbear tag start your own thread and ssk for help

I bought a tag and was wondering if unit 33 was glassable? If not I am thinking unit 19? Last year drew at 32 tag (not 32a) and pretty much just saw yotes, elk, mulies and grassland... bear so far seems to be my Achilles heal...
