Best to get advice from successful hunters. If you are serious about stalking black bears work in wilderness areas - not necessarily designated wilderness but pure wilderness where bears will move during daylight. Hunt areas where running, baying, catching bears is illegal. Food is the heart of the matter for black bears. Early season is not that bad. Bow season OK - definitely not during a gun season. Bear populations have exploded since the early 90s and we are seeing lots of em. I have stalked 11 I think maybe a few more. Stalking bears is not difficult in breezy or steady wind conditions. Hunting hogs is the best practice.
Catskills good - Southern WV good - eastern NC good - north GA good. I am sure there are more but in these areas specifically a hunter could realistically hunt bears deliberately with archery tackle and without bait
