If you’re a Pennsylvania bear hunter, you’re in luck, because the hunting opportunities have never been better! It’s an exciting time, between expanded seasons, including one of Pennsylvania’s first-ever Sunday big game hunting opportunities on Nov. 22 for the statewide regular firearms bear season, and a robust bear population totaling about 20,000.
In this episode, Pennsylvania native and lifelong hunter Frank Sutliff, shares his insights on bear hunting in our state, and what to look for when you’re planning your hunt. Frank is from Renovo, Clinton County, which is well-known for its black bear hunting, due to the rugged terrain in that northern area of the state.
Frank grew up hunting and fishing in the great outdoors and went on to create Top Calls, a well-known Pennsylvania call company specializing in turkey, deer, waterfowl and predator calls. He shares some of his favorite bear hunting tips and stories from his time in the woods.
