Wolfs wont bother you. Might kist keep you up at night. Listen to them every year in Oregon and idaho have had some as close as 10 yards working elk they see you and run. Pack a sidearm put a laser on it

I figured theyíd be running if they see me, just wasnít sure if anyone was doing anything different around their camps that I hadnít thought about.  Thanks again to everyone thatís sent me a pm offering advice and help with the hunt, itís been greatly appreciated 👍

After packing my last 4 out of 5 bulls out on my back I decided to upgrade to an exo pack a few months ago. I donít have a lot of extra cash and it took a lot of convincing from a good friend. So far itís been the most comfortable backing pack Iíve ever used and Iím hoping to see how it feels with some bear meat on it. 3 more weeks!!!

Go into the mountains and let your mind clear up! It always works for me! First hint of that clean mountain air and my mind just clears and wanders back to FAR better times! Good luck to you!

We got tags for the Oregon Weneha, and this weekend the first snow drift across the road that we came to we got out to check it out and there was a big ol wolf track right down the middle of the drift/road.  No other boot marks or any other tracks in the snow, just a single big ol wolf track.  we checked around to see if there was other tracks around the drift, but just the one.  Soo, my opening weekend report on the South Blues is as to be expected:  Lots of snow and Couldn't get very far up at all.  :o :o :o We're gonna wait 2 weeks and hope some of the snow melts off and we can get in there and get after em!  Hopefully you guys on the North end were able to get in somewhere's and get in some hunting.  Good luck to all!

Iím sitting on the side of the mountain in the Wenaha at the moment...

Weíve seen three bears so far, but nothing to write home about. Way less pressure when youíre shooting them with a camera! 😂

We had a great first weekend. Spent 2 nights and 3 days in the wilderness. I saw 1 bear and we put about 25 miles on the ground. The weather was great, sun, rain, hail and snow 😂. Couldnít have asked for a better first trip. I canít wait for the next trip in a couple of weeks.

That's good news.  That's awesome you got out and had a great weekend.  I'm jealous.  Can't get over there for two more weeks.
