Oregon spring bear
« on: January 07, 2017, 01:19:48 PM »
My 13 year old son and I are hoping to draw west blue mountains tags this spring. Anyone have any advice on which areas in this 3 unit area that we should concentrate?  What about timing of the hunt?  It's open April 1 to May 31. I was thinking early May might be best but curious what others suggest?  Thanks

Tons of bears in the Walla Walla unit, but it might be tough getting access into the national forest this spring due to heavy snowfall.  You might be able to hunt right off the 65 Rd coming up out of Mill Creek and kill a bear.

Lots of bear in Mt Emily, with big open canyons to glass. But there again, access might be limited unless you have a snow machine.

Ukiah I don't hear much about when it comes to spring bear hunting.  But driving south on 395 going down Camas Creek it looks really good on the breaks of the Bridge Creek Flats. If you took a raft to cross the creek and hiked back up in some of those canyons I would expect to spot bears.
