I'm hunting in the evening, the temps have been dropping off and the berries are just starting to ripen.  Did some scouting over the weekend.  Found some sign so I'm gonna give it a go.

I would have considered going in the evening after work but it's going to be way too hot. Not fun! I looked at the hourly weather on the weather app on my phone, and it shows 89 degrees at 7:00 PM, 84 degrees at 8:00, and 79 at 9:00. For me, morning would be the only option, so hopefully I'll be able to get out there early Friday morning.

Check the regs before you go, it's a scatter board of different dates in different units.   Way too hot for me.   I love it when the guys w bait post within a couple hours of light on opening day, just happen on this bear in the woods!   :chuckle: :chuckle:

Headed out with the wife in the evening, and this weekend with my son. Can't find bears at home and if I am going to sweat my butt of  I may as well be in the woods.

Was only 62 at 5am (I didn't go).  By 10am we are choked thick with smoke, visibility absolutely sucks.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

 Went out for a short evening scout/hunt session.  88 degrees, saw a small buck, then three cow elk, then a bull elk, then four more doe and yearling combinations as I moved around.  Zero bear. 

Several idiots were heading in at full speed, fishtailing up the gravel roads and into the hills at last light as I was leaving.  Night hunters I guess.

I'm seriously contemplating it though I hate early season hunting.  I know where there are a couple feeding and there's a lot of color phase genes in the area.   Anyways, thinking about it, but have lots of other priorities.

Let us know how it is. If this is the same area you caught me on a game camera a couple years ago i think i know where your talking about. :chuckle: :chuckle:
I saw a flushed a decent 5' bear in there last night but was not able to get a shot off. Went back this morning but it was pretty quiet and there were 4 trucks at the gate.
