It was this last weekend between Buzzard Lake and the top of the hill.

Everyone who bear hunts any where remotely close to known grizzly areas should take the grizzly bear test until you pass with 100%...

Wow
A remarkable experience is one where the pain is forgotten so quickly, the frustrations and struggles are forgotten the minute you’re done.

I can’t wait to do it the next time.

:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

So soft and cuddly, round fuzzy faces.  Can I pet them?  What could go wrong?

Thanks for sharing!
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Maybe not. Our OP may have bad info. If so, I'll give him some good natured grief. I'd still stand up and say what I did.

bad info or not, it's still a cool encounter someone had.   We don't need rude folks trashing a thread just because "last weekend" might have actually meant a couple months ago in June (or not)

Who cares.  I still thank the OP for sharing what he knows.

It's actually north west of Okanagan the town, which is closer than Conconuly.
