Found a solid bear now how to kill him
« on: August 12, 2017, 09:45:16 AM »
Was going to check trail cameras last night and had a monster jump out infront of me couldn't get a shot off but he didn't seem super spooked . He just trotted of. Basically what I am asking is he gone forever or is he going to be in the same general area and I should call to him tonight ? Western Washington brush.

Any nearby landings from where you can glass the area?

Why wouldn't you try calling tonight?  :dunno:
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Keep hunting the same area if a lot of food, water near and fresh scat. Try some calls as well. Good luck, hope you get it.
