This will be my first year trying to call bears...so it should be fun. I wont be in a stand..but will be finding a nice high stump to over look (i have one in mind for the bear spots that are close by my house). Should be exciting....i am wondering what else will come running... ;)

When your senses are in overdrive and on edge even a small bobcat running through the brush will get your heart pumping....LOL

Hey Billythekidrock~

Ya..I am sure I will by hyper sensitive when I call...I know black bears dont attack often, but I am still kind of paranoid about it...even if I am armed....should be a good time. ;)

One thing, don't get discouraged too quickly.  Put a watch out in front of you so you can keep an eye on the time, 45 min to an hour is a LONG time and seems twice as long when your calling.  It is VERY exciting, but I find lots of guys who give up too quickly.  Hang in there and you will call in a bruin.

Thanks for the advice....I remember the first time i called in a black tail....rattled for some time etc...nothing..I thought..well that was fun...I turn around and look up the hill...a buck and 2 does looking at me like im retarded. So, I throw an arrow at the buck (he was standing imbetween two trees, chest shot...all i could see was his base of horns going up, then they were blocked from the trees), hits a fallen tree infront of him (i was down hill...shot too low), he scampered off...but still a good time.

In August I almost always take a group of Boy Scouts backpacking for 5 - 7 days up in the Cascades. We generally run across at least a few bears... Had delusions about hauling the '06 along, and having the Scouts help haul out the hide, skull & meat, but somehow I just don't think that would work out real well....

When I go out looking for bear, rifle in hand and with the worst of intentions towards the bear... I seldom see one. I think the bears are outsmarting me so far...

The joke would really be on you when you decided to shoot one of them about 7 miles in.  I swear I can't kill a bear unless its a whole day hike out.  Funny how that works.
