This fall I will be hunting elk in the Silverton, CO area. One of the guys I will be hunting with came across a bear cave when he was last in the area.

I intend to purchase a bear tag and hopefully will nab both an elk and a bear while I am out.

I will be hunting with a 30-06 and carry a .44 Mag as back up. Since I have never been after bear before, I was wondering if I could get some pointers?
