Yes, hunting is allowed in the Boundary Waters. As
with canoeing, permits
are required in the BWCA. The challenge as well, for bear hunting, is the fact that motors, wheeled transportation devices, and
machinery is not allowed in the BWCA. This makes a challenge for
hauling the bear out and keeping it cool enough to stay fresh. Hunting in
the BWCA is not recommended except for experienced hunters with with
past Boundary Waters experience.
