Bear hunting Ontario can be risky affairs so always maintain a safe distance. Ontario hunting law requires that you wear hunter orange. If you have never gone bear hunting before, then do not go into the woods alone. Get someone who has experience in hunting to accompany you. This person should know the different habits and body languages which bears display when they are ready to attack. For instance, a sure sign of aggression for a bear is standing on its hind legs. This is a sign to back away slowly.
