Saw quite a few out bear hunting/elk scouting this weekend.  Both ruffed and blue.  Count me ready for the season to start!

Saw 24 ruffeds in 1 day of elk scouting in the Blues.  3 broods.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

How high up are people seeing them? I'm headed into the Colville forest camping this weekend but want to try to kick up a few grouse if I can
