Black bears are among the most desired animals because of their alertness, sharp senses and cautious behavior. In regions where there are constantly hunted, bears become active mainly during the night. Bear hunting in Bulgaria has strong traditions and is one of the most emotional.
In the winter, bears decrease their heart rate and their body prepares for the winter hibernation. Usually, they use that ability when they are wounded to decrease blood loss.
Hunters should use as big calibers as possible and we recommend nothing smaller than .30-06. Bigger caliber does not guarantee success but shows respect in hunting that strong and powerful animal.
Recently, bear population increases in Bulgaria and Ultimate Hunting can offer you hunting outstanding trophy bears.
