I agree it would be nice to hunt the bridge gate. I'm hunting my butt off and haven't seen a bear yet. But it's not over yet.

My buddy was walking super grassy roads on the bridge gate side finding tons of peels ran into two one morning, find the fresh peels. He doesn't have a tag which is why he was on the bridge side

find the steep ridges with water below,look for all the things you hate, devils clubs,salmon berries..and skeeters..one thing I have found taking guys up there is a greater percentage of them are afraid of bears and the areas they will hang in..The ridges will get used often...The south side is loaded with bears

Good job you two.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not!

I've been hitting it intermittently the last few weeks and quite a bit this past weekend.  Walking several roads covered in grass with the right sized trees.   Not seeing hardly any fresh sign.

Nice job.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

I scouting and saw my first bear today up at Hancock. A was driving coming around the corner and thought I saw something bolt into the brush up ahead. Wasn't sure if it was anything. Well I get up to the spot were I believe I saw something and there was a couple fresh peels. So I got out and walked up the road then I heard something down in the brush. I seen up ahead there was a little opening. Sure enough a bear walks though this little opening. He wasn't running but was walking fast. After scouting for the last five straight weekends I was really cool to finally see one. Even though it was only about two seconds.
