Patience is a big part of bear hunting
Always cut open the gut, learn a lot doing that

OK so here's an update.  I've been hunting this spot pretty hard for the weekend-warrior that I am; although I have made it out on a few weekday evenings. 

I've seen what I'm pretty sure is this same bear twice now, but both times moving way too fast for me to get a 400-ish yd shot off.

I've tried some calling with a primos fawn in distress call to no avail.  I have NO idea what I'm doing when it comes to calling though, besides what I read on the call package.  I will gladly welcome any tips on this front.  What's the best call (fawn, or something else?) this time of year? 

Here's a pick from the weekend just to whet the whistle.  Me for scale.  I'm 6'2" 215lb. 

It's a popular elk area so I'm a little concerned he's 100% nocturnal for the remainder of general elk season...
