Wanted to add another peel pic. I think this one shows the teeth marks very well.

Great write up saylean. Do you chase yogi around Baker lake at all? I'm up in Bellingham and constantly hear how great it is there. My biggest problem, finding the high country meadows that aren't full of hikers. I know full well I have as much right being there hunting bear but packing one out past a family of 4 tree huggers doesn't paint the best picture of us hunters. I am to the point where I get sooooo tired of seeing hikers and mt. bikers when in the woods, and yes, I get off of
the trails, a lot, they just out number us out there. Always looking for input for potential spots (like everyone else right!?)

Good hunting, we're almost there!
