Female: yes, it seems. But what about the males?

I can't seem to find a definitive answer. I've found information regarding the female polar bears entering a hibernation-type state when they go into their den to give birth, but I can't find anything that says if male polar bears hibernate. Considering they hunt in the winter and the summer periods are relatively short, I'm wondering if they need to.
