Great thread! Awesome information! We went out this weekend and found some decent spots for calling. Didnt find a ton of fresh sign. With this in mind, should we save our calling in these areas until later in the season? Or should we give them a go? also, have you had any luck in the rain calling? I know they are always out there, but hunting bears has always been better for us in the sun rather than the rain.

Haven't had much luck calling anything in rain...I have called in bears in snow. If I think an area looks promising for bear, but I don't see any, I call anyway, regardless.

Awesome info, thank you very much for the write up!! It's a dream of mine to harvest a bear, and if you dont mind me asking, what are some of the better areas on the west side? And also, is hunting them in August much different than Spring? Thanks a ton!

Just a bump for those late risers having a second cup of coffee this morning. C'mon spring tags!
