Default Bears up north ga

I'm going to try to go up to cohutta and do some bear hunting for couple days hopefully in October. We have a 1 day bear hunt here in middle ga and I've killed 1 over the years so I know how to find sign and I know what I'm looking for to hunt but I've only been to cohutta once and didn't have a very good trip we hunted flat top mountain or bald mountain I think been probably 10 years ago. I've read alot on here about cohutta and it's all helpful but I can only go for a few day are there any certain areas to stay away from or areas that I be better to go walk. I plan on doing alot of walking the first day and hunt the next 2 if I can find any sign. Y'all think it be better to go bow hunting or on a gun hunt since I only be there for few days.

I am not a regular Mountain Hunter, but I did take a black bear one archery season. Give me the first two weeks of bow season over all the rest.
Hint, you may need to practice shooting your arrows up at a 45 degree angle through the canopies of oak trees.

Bow season in September. Go up and find the white oaks and you will find bears. Walk the old logging roads in the evenings, get the wind in your face and listen for the bears up in the trees breaking limbs. Also check the food plots esp the ones with sorghum. Please kill your limit and then bring someone else to kill theirs as well.

If you plan to do a lot of walking while here, leave those rubber boots at home and bring a well broken in pair of hiking, hunting, or work boots. If you bring the rubbers, you'll be sorry!!!

What are your tree climbing boots? For work or hunting?

Default Boots

When I'm in a top of a tree cutting it down it's a pair of boot I use for limb walking.

You need to get a pair of boots for hunting and leave the work boots at home. A bear will smell you faster than a deer will....... and a hog has better sense of smell than all of them put together.

... lightweight, soft soled, ankle high hiking boots without high heel, gas and oil and 2-stroke exhaust all over them are better than climbing boots.

Except for climbing trees...
