Where are the bears this time of year
« on: October 27, 2017, 06:26:25 AM »
What elevation, and food are the bears hitting this time of year? I still owe my 8 year old a hunt with Dad after going out with my 11 year old only so far. I usually hunt the low lands and Foothills of the west side but I can venture into different habitat for sure. Thanks

Five of them are on my two baits in Idaho!!  I know that isn't much help for you.  They are getting sooo fat!  My baits are at 3100 ft level.
