Nice job guys, it's great to see guys sticking it out, not giving up out of frustration. Congrat's. Let's keep them coming, we need more pics and stories.

Well , that's why it's called hunting.  First Skagit spring bear hunt was an eye opener.   Have so many ideas for the next time , now time to think about August 1

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'd be surprised if there was 10.

I heard the Monroe guys all tagged out. ;)
