Lucero said the bear grabbed the man, injuring his arm. The man was taken to Sutter Roseville Medical Center, where Fish and Game officials were interviewing him.
The hunting party was using dogs at the time of the attack.
Bear hunting season begins in early October and lasts until the allotted number of bears is killed, Lucero said.
Lucero said the bear ran away, but added that the animal likely died.
