% for spring bear harvests
« on: March 28, 2013, 05:56:17 PM »
What are the % of bagging bear in Monroe Unit? Just wondering since I got drawn this year. Only 20 hunters allowed, how many kills?

Pjb, judging from out weather, I personally think it is going to be a great season for monroe/skagit. That being said, read up on some spring bear threads, put your time in and I am sure you can bag one.

Time, patience, knowledge and a little luck is all you need.
Good luck!

 :yeah:

A couple years ago when i drew. It was a cold cold year and i still got into bears.

The percentage depends on how much effort you put into scouting and time spent in the woods and last but not least how picky you are going to be about the bear you harvest.

I agree.  Fill the tag first.  I'm going out with my 30-06 and I'm heading to the range early tomorrow to double check the scope as well.  I have a .50 cal muzzleloader for the 2nd bear...but I have to focus on bear #1 lol.

Just making sure you guys know only one of your two available bear tags can be used in the spring.  I know I talked to a few guys last year that were confused by the way the state worded it.
He asked, Do you ever give a short simple answer?  I replied, "Nope."

Just remember this. If you think the bear is 200lbs it is more than likely 100lb er. If it looks 400lbs it's a shooter. LOL My buddy called me on the radio and said he killed a 200lb er. I looked at my other buddy and said it's probably a 100lb bear. He was scare to go down there and check. LOL Give him a break it was his first bear. I would of shot it. I called him back and I said. Did you get it? YYYYEEEESSS!!!!! By the said of his voice I knew it was smaller. I skinned it for him and now his wife does not want to waste the money for tanning.  :dunno: He asked if I wanted it. NO but my other buddy will take it and tan the bear hide.  :tup: I would take it but I already have 5 bear.

Only one bear killed in Monroe last year and I spotted it :IBCOOL:.  Spring tags are kinda a joke really.  Its suppose to be a management tool for damage areas and only 1 bear gets taken seems pointless as a management tool.
