I will be in the Blues come opening day. My sister-in-law has mentioned a bear rug a few times. I am going to see about getting one. I spent some time this pm working up loads for my 270. Next I have to go to the range and make sure everything is okay. We can't have a fire due to restrictions this year, so the 5 pounds of ribeye steaks I took for turkey hunting in the Blues last year is out. I have some moose german sausage that I can bring. I have to do some meal planning this week. Maybe some moose burgers are in order.
Also, the Blues have some nice electrical storms as entertainment in the evenings.

Never set up a bear camp....that could be fun. Usually, I just do day hunts...I like the idea of a bear camp though...it would be cool, having a predator camp!

730 bones on a predator caller Rick?! Man...you could have hired me, made me thrash around and call for you for that price...must be worth it!

I will be all set up Thursday night at 4500', west side. One of my buddies "might" join me....probably not... Gonna look for mega-pooper from last year. Hope there are ripe berries by now, but I sort of doubt it....  I need the four days to decompress, bear or no bear...

The little wild blackberries and wild raspberries are ripe as low as 500 feet in Western WA.

From the activity in the bear forum, everyone is already out looking for their bear.
I just preloaded my GPS with roads and contours for the Oly PA. Got out my head to toe forest camo. I look like a bandit with the camo hanky. It covers from the nose down and with the hat, there is not a lot of skin to see.
I have my turkey gloves to hide the hands. It should be fun. I was considering a range finder, but I am going to wait and get one prior to Nov 1 for elk. I am not going to shoot at a bear past 150 yards. Now the bear just have to cooperate and come out into the clearing to eat berries.

I will be out watching the Blue Angels and Bikinis :chuckle: Good luck.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!
