You know I find it amazing that people still complain that they won't give out keys to anyone. Think of what some people have ended up doing while there up there in the past, dumping garbage, breaking locks(still happens) even if they have key's to other gates, dropping beer cans all over the roads, hauling ass up and down the roads, parking in the middle of the roads blocking workers from doing their job. Also how many keys did they get back? Now I'm not saying that any of us are the ones doing the stuff that closes down land, and I sure as hell hope its not, but when I drive up to places like alger, finney, and other places and see all the litter all the people who don't respect others property, nature, or wildlife, I don't blame them for not giving out any keys. Also I think if they didn't give us key's they wouldn't have to give the natives keys. Not sure on that one, but I'd be guessing that's the way it works.

Totally agree. I like the walk and bike in areas.I probably won't in twenty years when I'm older.

Heading out to spend the day maybe I can get lucky and see a decent bear for once.  Seen a few small bears so far and tons of elk.  Funny when I am elk hunting I see bear and now bear hunting I see a lot of elk.  Won't mind finding some sheds tho.....  :P  Hopefully while skinning out a big old boar!  Good luck everyone and if you see a white GMC say hi..... I'll be the one with a longbow.

Well having taken 21 bear out of this unit and not one from a bait or the use of hounds I would say there is a few bear around and 2 years in a row now I HAVE DRIVEN THE SAME ROAD IN MAY and have seen 2 huge bear and I keep saying I will put in for a tag in the spring and never due.. All the bear I  have shot have been in late august thru october all up high eating blue berries and oregon grapes.. It is not that hard if you know what to look for.. In may they are eating fresh grass on the side of the roads so if you can find bear peels on trees along the side of the road your chances are good.. check early morning late evening and keep going back for a few days straight.... ;) ;) good luck!!!
