This is the first year in 14 that I haven't gotten excited.
I havent' been out. My area is overgrown and I haven't found a new spot.

Kinda strange feeling.

Rick - Let me know how the ladders work.
I do know that they are going to be cutting a few acres around the mainline and rez, but there will be no feed for a couple years.

Sounds like a great time Rick.

I'm not out for bear crawlin until mid August. I feel antsy to check out another spot I have in mind. I'm anxious to see if I will have a good chance at one myself.

Hope you get some photos to share  8)

Too warm for me.  I wait until after September.  The hucks are on up high, so there should be some munchers out there.

A bit warm for me too...but it gives me an excuse to get out! I will probably just scout basically, maybe work on my calling and see what happens...but then hit it at the end of August early sept....Looking forward to it this year!

Well it looks like the spring hunters left a few in my local area. My buddy saw two singles today and the neighbor saw a sow and a cub last week. Not sure what my plans are yet, but I am starting to get a bit ansy.

I saw one at 15 feet this weekend.  I was creek fishin and looked up, she was stnading on a log that was above me in the creek.  Scared the beejeebers out of me.  the about 10 minutes later two jets came down through the canyon and banked right above me, sonic boom or whatever thescream is, totally unnerved me again.  I done thought she had me.

Went up to Baker scouting this last weekend with my bro...wearing a t-shirt/jeans...didnt see much sign (few ripped up stumps) but we were just poking around...I was out in the woods about 3 hours...skeeters were soo thick...got back to the house...girlfriend counted over 50 skeeter bites on my back alone...I have probably 15 or so on each arm...lesson learned. And I am usually the type of guy that the skeeters hate to munch on....

That's great! After getting rattled by seeing her at close range, then the scream of the jets a few minutes later...  :) So, how was your fishing afterwards? I think I'd want to sit down and have a cold one about that point. Somewhere safe...  :)

Fos - I hope the open gates are on the other side of the river. Glenn called me last week and left a message about going up early..With the nice weather it could get crowded.

I won't get out until around the 12th, good luck to those that get out sooner, and lets see some pics!
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
If I ageed with you, then we'd both be wrong.

Fos - Did you hear anything from Rick?

I know that Glenn's friend shot and missed one, and Glenn was not paying attention and one crossed the road in front of him. He did not get a shot.:dunno: Both of them were hunting behind the gate that you hunted before (where you were watching along the old logging road).

Gosh these 3rd hand reports make it sound like the woods are teaming with bears. Hopefully on our trip in a couple of weeks we get attacked like these guys. :D

I went out picking hucks.  No bear sign...lots of good berries.  Pretty low huck action.  The uppers should be coloring up here shortly.
