Bear hunting offer September 15-16
« on: September 05, 2017, 07:25:49 AM »
I already posted this on the women's board but thought I'd present it here in case there are some young women who haven't joined that board yet.

Hey gang! So I will have 2 days off after a 21 day fire assignment on September 15-16 and like the crazy lady that I am, I want to spend it chasing bears in the Methow valley. My fella is my usual partner in crime, but he will be in Idaho on a fire still. Anyone want to either accompany me OR pull the trigger yourself on a bear? The terms are as follows: NO going back to my area without me, and when someone asks where you were, "black bear mountain" is the answer  :chuckle:. Please no scenery shots that'll give it away either... I've been burned on a really cool spot by accidentally doing that myself. I'm willing to make it a group if more than one person wants to go... but the deal will be as follows: if you want to be the potential shooter, you need to have your own firearm and equipment, be proficient with it and firearm safety, and have your license in hand the morning of the 15th or the evening of the 14th (whenever we decide to meet up) and have a backpack you can help haul your bear out in... and I'll help skin and bone out the bear and assist in packing it back to the vehicles, but the responsibility to transport/cut/process and get the head/hide to the proper locations would be on you. (I have to be in Wenatchee to travel to my next fire on the 17th so sadly I couldn't commit any more time). Must be willing to hike 3-6 miles for this hunt... first half of the day is up, but we can go slow. No big deal! Also, this is a ladies ONLY trip, and most likely a car camp overnight on the 15th. Interested? Let's talk! I'll attach photos of the two bears we snuck on last year same timeframe in the basin I want to hunt again this year. My mom may come along, too, but she has no interest in harvesting a bear.

I already have one gal from this forum who has taken me up on the offer to come along, but we could have up to 4 and still be effective in sneaking/glassing this particular area. We plan on meeting the evening of the 14th either in Chelan or up the Methow. She will be leaving the morning of the 16th, so we can still go out one more day (I'm going to irregardless) if someone is interested.
I am not opposed to golf, for I suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering deer.

There's a lot of guys here that are going to start identitying as a female today.

Nice offer and good luck!

Great offer.  :tup:

Great offer!  And I suspect that anyone with eyes open would learn something about hunting from going with you. 

Hey, love your bear pics, especially the runner inspired by the rabbit call.  When hunting with a grandson to get him a bear, we had a good sized bear doing a fast rolling shuffle away from us so I blew my predator call to get him to stop.  It has worked sometimes.  On that bear it kicked in his afterburner and he took off on a dead run without even glancing back.  Ya win some...

Good luck and shoot a big one, and if he isn't available shoot a pretty one!
