Would you expect similar road conditions in 117?  I drew a tag for that unit, but plan on going there end of May/June.  Hopefully things will have dried out somewhat by then.

I drew spring bear for GMU 121. I have never been there and I am looking for some advice on:

1.)Dates (I was thinking of going around the last weekend of April, is this to early?)
2.) Any suggested "Hunny hole" locations that I should be looking at?
3.) ATV/Motorcycle - I have access to both, but are they necessary? I like to get back deep and hike a ton but don't want to be hiking if "Mr. Renthals" is going to be  going through rhythm sections close by all the time

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as this will be my first time bear hunting.

Thank you in advance.
Isn't The Hunny Hole a strip club? Or maybe a bikini barista hut? Lol.

I'm curious if the burn will have driven some out or if they returned to their typical den areas. I have areas that I've seen several but not even a track yet.

That guy obviously doesn't know how to drive.  Dodges don't get stuck.

Obviously that's what he thought!  :chuckle:
Looks like a Bellevue truck.

Lift kit, big tires, giant C Cummins sticker in the back window along with the other gigantic stickers.

Kinda looks like he was ripping around in there proving his jacked truck couldn't get stuck :tup:  Pretty embarrassing for a Dodge guy to get hauled out with a Ford :chuckle:

Come on guys! Clearly that truck just needed bigger tires and more lift.

I've had two baits out for 8 days, not one bear visit so far, no tracks and no fresh poo found.
