I ran into Cylde last night when I was headed in.   He said there have been 5 harvest cards filled out so far.

That's great to hear. I've found an area filled with scat and peels. I hope to go sit on it this evening and get lucky. Good luck to everyone

you can only hunt south side. But I've seen equal amount of bears on both

I agree it would be nice to hunt the bridge gate. I'm hunting my butt off and haven't seen a bear yet. But it's not over yet.

My buddy was walking super grassy roads on the bridge gate side finding tons of peels ran into two one morning, find the fresh peels. He doesn't have a tag which is why he was on the bridge side

find the steep ridges with water below,look for all the things you hate, devils clubs,salmon berries..and skeeters..one thing I have found taking guys up there is a greater percentage of them are afraid of bears and the areas they will hang in..The ridges will get used often...The south side is loaded with bears

You think their still hanging low or moving up higher now? Haven't found good peels in awhile.
