That bear was close to Copalis but not quite there haha. This was the third bear I saw that day.  Just from experience the bears out here love warm and sunny afternoons.   :twocents:

I have been hitting Copalis pretty hard.  Haven't seen anything yet.  Heading out again next week.  Maybe then.

Sadly I didn't draw a spring tag this year, but bears are moving around out on the coast.  Saw this guy a few days ago, clear sunny day around 2:00 pm.

Thanks. It was a long night and being mothers day it won't pan out today, my phone camera bit the dust but thankfully I had my d800 along so after I get some time I'll do some pics and details.

BIG chocolate boar tonight at 875. No chance to stock him he dipped into the thick stuff fast. Sow and cubs last two nights in a row. Hunting hard lots of glassing. Ran into a few other Huntwa guys today off the road. Good guys. Tomorrow hoping to get back on the big boy we saw. If we were in our spot we were in last night would have killed him today. Wrong place wrong time. Did here a sow calling to her cubs and got to watch them tonight. Good times

Remember to turn off your location setting on your phone before posting pics, no need to give up that spot.  You guys will get one, we will be there Wednesday night.

Finally killed a big boar Saturday night.  28th adult bear seen this season in 15 days of hunting.

Surely you can spare a picture .....
