I've found extraordinary luck when I've stumbled across bears while traveling. My method is to retreat to the point that I can go to the strategic map, then to go back to the tactical map, build a large deadfall and bait it. Six times I've done this, and with different characters, and EVERY time I came back the next day to find the bear trapped.
I think it works so well because the trap is well within the bear's range. I carry uncooked meat/fish and always have at least one cord on hand so I can build a trap when opportunity knocks.

And some time you'll find yourself attacked by a bear from behind while working on building a trap...

But yes, I've been reasonably successful building traps near to bear sightings (although it took longer than a day).

Aye. It's a 'Tried and True' method! And, as Palu points out, it can occasionally backfire...heh.

That’s also working method for foxes and lynxes. Spot, build/set trap, come back in 12-36h, catch.
Somehow, it’s not so successful with gluttons.
