Just curious if anyone has been out in the Sherman unit bear hunting and how things are looking.  Headed over on Thursday for four days of hunting.  Feel free to PM if you would like.  Looking forward to getting over there!  Thanks.

I was just over there last weekend. A few of us were hiking around looking for sheds. None of us seen any sign of bears around, no poop either. We usually see bears on our cameras by now and we didn't have any. It was very cold and it snowed Saturday night. That was at 3000 feet. I think the weather will start getting better by this weekend.

Yeah I've been keeping an eye on the weather and it hasn't been great over there, but does look like it is finally going to get better.  Hopefully next week the bears start coming out.

Sherman pass has a wsdot cam at the summit which can be helpful in gauging the weather.

Yep, been looking at that camera regularly, and hopefully will quit seeing fresh snow!  I think this is finally the end of the white stuff.

Got some intel, the bears are on the move  :tup: some family reported seeing several these past 2 days, one big red one too! Ironically, one area a bear was seen was where we were all shed hunting a few weeks ago, that's at 3000 feet.

Sounds like a guy could finally venture in the higher elevations now and have a good chance at seeing something... and maybe not get stuck in the mud either  8)

I've yet to see one, all the other big game though. Moose, elk, deer, cougar, and wolves. If you know where K2 is the drillers are saying there's a good few in there. One up Bodie has poop the diameter of a pop can! Good luck gents!
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

How did you guys do shed hunting?

Didn't find nothing on public land  >:( but I did find about a 2" long forky from last year on our place, better than nothing I guess.

I saw 4 possibly 5( one may have been the same bear) in one day a couple weeks ago! A guy with a tag may or may not have punched his tag! Recently

Hunting is perfect in the NE right now, we killed two yesterday and one today, my son killed another three with hunters across the border in north Idaho the last two days.

My first bear, taken last Thursday in Sherman. It is cinnamon colored with a blond streak along the back.
