high country bear/deer hunt
« on: September 27, 2010, 07:30:40 PM »
I posted on here a while back about going up on the border of ONP and hunting bears/deer. I have a archery tag for deer so I am looking at casing some bears but was wondering if someone wanted to tag along with a rifle. Cant find who responded to my last post.

Its about 6 hrs of steep climbing to get there. Leaving Friday early afternoon Oct 15, coming out that sunday. Light weight back packing style. I have everything so if there is someone who is serious and in shape PM me.

Ive never been up there in Oct but I've seen a TON of bears year after year when up there in late sept.

I might be in some of those areas.  I usually try to go a bit longer--Sun evening to Friday evening (or tag used).  I was in there for 8 days of the high buck season.  Mostly ended up being scouting.  There seems to be lots of cougars in there.

No archery deer season is not open but archery rifle is. I would be archery beer hunting but is someone with a rifle deer tag wanted to come they could get either. Ive never seen cougar tracks or a cougar but the area is huge so i am sure there are more in some areas.
