You may want to look at Alberta Canada. I believe you can take two bears.
That's correct, in the northern half of the province. There's also a fair number of colour phase bears in Alberta, so there's a good chance of getting something other than a black black bear. You can also use different hunting methods. In the spring particularly, spot and stalk is quite productive along seismic cut lines and the like. Baiting is allowed in areas where there are no grizzly bears. While baiting may not be everyone's cup of tea, it can be interesting to pass a day or two watching bears come to the bait. Big and small, sows and boars, cubs, yearlings and more mature bears. Lots of fun even if you're only going to shoot with a camera. You can hunt with bows or rifles and so far I think, with spears (there was a movement to ban spear hunting - not sure if they succeeded).
Our bears in Alberta are typically not as large as those in the coastal areas of British Columbia, the province next door. As an aside, though, BC is populated, or so it seems, by anti-oil and gas types, although they seem to consume the stuff readily enough. I suggest you stick to Alberta, unless you strongly prefer the California type of government.
