I've got a decent spot off of I-90, but I worry about shooting one in the heat of early August.

I'm looking for bears this season. I have not seen any this year... but I have not been getting enough spare time to look much. If I'm lucky maybe I'll get one with a Yew Bow. Who knows?

I linked this thread to the Calendar as the Bear Season Opener.

Opener is coming up fast. I don't have much time to scout right now, but I would really like to get one with my bow. It is just too brushy where I rifle hunt.

Will it drive you nuts knowing that the opener is in about three weeks and you won't be here for about seven? LOL

Went out today to pull down my trail cam because it hasnt been taking pictures.  Checked a spot that i have seen some sign in and seen a sow and cub.  Went to get the trail cam and of course no pics.  We checked one more area and as we were heading back to the truck a 100 pounder popped out of the timber.  This spot produced 5 bears last year and is looking promising this year aswell.

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.
