There is a different time period for each bear, but on average, a bear will hibernate from early November to April. It all depends on the severity of the winter in the region the bear is living in.
A bear can generally be counted on to hibernate between late autumn and spring. There are various factors, though, (species of bear, length of winter) that help to determine this.
On a side note, an interesting fact about bears is that the female can delay the implantation of her fertilized egg after mating. They can do this for several months. The reason being, that they time when the cubs will be born, so that they can be born during the safety of hibernation.
