    I don't believe Arkansas has a spring bear season.

    If we had a spring season it would be pretty miserable hunting. Imagine a wrestling a bear carcass in the May heat around here. It would probably spoil before you got it home.

    Try Idaho or Montana. They have spring seasons.

    Here in AK, there is no closed season on bear. Of course it's illegal to and disturb them in their dens as well though. I am heading out in late April/early May depending on the snow pack that may still be around. I can shoot 5 blackies a year here, so I intend to at least get a few in the next 3 years.
