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.

Just got back from three days in the teanaway and mission units. Saw no bears. Sign was a bit sparce. Teanaway was loaded with berries, should have seen more sign...? Did see a bunch more elk this year compared to last...and not as dry as I expected. Last year at this time was drier. Saw some awesome bucks in velvet. After I check my pics, i will see if i can post any, only have minimal zoom.

Some dude took down a bear about 1/4 of a mile from us this morning. Didn't see it happen but heard it and saw the hide and such.

This was our backup plan location and there was a number of other folks around there this morning. Good to see that someone connected.

Won't be able to get out until around mid month. Will look at our primary spot and do some hiking\camping.

Saw that another brown one was being loaded up into someone's rig on the way home.

Went over to where my bro got his bear opening day...no bear sighting, but I saw two dandy elk...7 points...little bro has pics...will post when i get them, they were gorgeous. Also saw a nice 4 pt black tail..no pics, but one of the nicer black tails I have seen in a while...of course, I dont get out much. ;) 

I also tried calling bears for the first time. Wind in my face, I was blowing into a gully which also lead out to a timber line (nice view of about 230yards with nasty brush), while I was sitting on a log jam. I wasnt expecting something to come up from behind, since the wind was carrying my scent over the hill...but sure enough, it sounded like a freight train was coming, so I whip around, second guessing if I really heard anything...as it stopped short of the edge that lead down to another gully, which was out of my view, but about 60 feet to my rear. So, I sat waiting for something to poke it's head out....no luck...but I think it caught my scent and bolted, as I heard it crashing as it was leaving...could have been anything..never did see it. But I do like calling. ;)

We have had bears come in from the downwind side but I don't think they were circling to check the wind. I think they were behind us when we started calling.

Did it sound like a "big" train or just a caboose? :chuckle:
