Anybody know how many Bears were taken in the Skagit? When I talked to the Bio around June 2nd he said 6 were killed at that time.

I only know of 6. 5 in this thread plus mine.

I'd be surprised if there was 10.

I heard the Monroe guys all tagged out. ;)

Well since I finally figured out how to post pics on my phone I might as well show 2 Bears that I spent a lot of hours trying to harvest. The colored one was a 1 time deal &  never came thru again. The Blackie was a smart one. I was  either late or he'd show up right after I left. Heck one time I heard a pop &  I turned around and he was 20' behind me and I couldn't get a shot off in time.
