Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Just coming back from a couple more days of bear hunting.  Saw one sow with twins.  A decent size bear too late to go after and another sow with a single cub.  Plus we saw a wolf chasing a cow elk and my buddy found a small moose shed

Good luck StringShot! Been curious how conditions are over there.  Partner and i drew tags, not heading over until Memorial weekend though. Hope you have a good hunt and let us know how it goes!

Finally had a beat on the bait in Idaho, showed up Friday.  Been back the last 2 days, but eating very little bait.  It snacked a little and then just laid down for a while and watched the bait barrel.  No good photos yet.

He's sitting in the upper right of the photo.  Kind of hard to see.

Nice to see Machias. I'm looking forward to seeing some dead bear pics.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not!
