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.

Just got back from Curlew. I've never seen it so bleak for grouse (and deer as well). We went out for 3 days straight in morning and evenings and only got 3 grouse between the 8 of us. Really weird, never seen it like that. I'm blaming it on the dry weather  :dunno:. A couple of the guys seen a decent bull moose and 2 teeny tiny cubs that looked as though they been waiting for mom a little too long (we think she was probably killed) probably not going to survive too long :'(.

We did pretty good in Idaho. 10 in 3 days. Saw several others, they were just faster than the boys.
