Spring in the Wenaha
« on: March 15, 2018, 12:26:43 PM »
Well....I finally got selected for a spring bear hunt!!! I canít express how excited I am 😁. Iíve never gotten the opportunity to focus on bear so Iím stoked to have this spring opportunity. With that said, Iíve been in the Wenaha a few times in the fall helping friends with quality elk tags but havenít been up there in the early spring. Iím curious what suggestions folks might have for access in the spring and general timeframe for snow melt?
Thanks

Have a great hunt. Glad a tag was drawn for someone who has spent time there. Post pics of your bear!

I am betting it got slammed with snow today, we woke up to a hard wet snow at camp. Got about 2 inches it melted off down low but was still snowing in the high country on my drive out today.

What area were you in? Hoping that snow melts quick and I can get in there from the south for the opener. ☀️☀️☀️

Unless you have time set aside for multiple trips be patient. If its not an early spring and gets warm and greens up you will have better luck waiting until later in the season for the bears to be out roaming for feed and the boars to be looking for sows.. Lots of guys can't wait to get over there and go for the opener or soon after and that's all the time they have and it only gets better. Early also means everyone is going in at the same general spot so you won't be alone in there...Its a fun hunt just don't go to early is my advise..

I have a spot dialed in when the snow lifts but need to gets some more ammo loaded for it.  Easy 1050 yard shot but the pack is 11 miles round trip on the trail or 2+ miles straight up and down.  How bad do I want a bear  :bdid: ???

Was down there this weekend, I have never seen so much wolf sign and wolves in my life.  Tracks every where, had one wolf at about 80 yards broadside, heard at least two more below me kill something.  Then heard more at night.  Quite a surreal experience.

That is terrible news, Iíve heard from a couple people that guide in the blues that support what you saw.  Between the wolves and another group the elk numbers are crashing very quickly, sad deal.  Iím not sure how much the wolves impact bear populations?

Nothing new. I have seen wolves in the wenaha and surrounding units for the past 6 years. This last season was the worst by far though. There are a couple good size packs in the area

We have cougars coming out our ears over here.  Way more an issue than bears. In fact I think packrats and skunks are more trouble than bears.  Just keep a,tidy campb and carry a sidearm. Be ready for all weather.  I drive to work in snow and drive home in sun and 60.  Gawd I love it over here.

Wolfs wont bother you. Might kist keep you up at night. Listen to them every year in Oregon and idaho have had some as close as 10 yards working elk they see you and run. Pack a sidearm put a laser on it

I figured theyíd be running if they see me, just wasnít sure if anyone was doing anything different around their camps that I hadnít thought about.  Thanks again to everyone thatís sent me a pm offering advice and help with the hunt, itís been greatly appreciated 👍

After packing my last 4 out of 5 bulls out on my back I decided to upgrade to an exo pack a few months ago. I donít have a lot of extra cash and it took a lot of convincing from a good friend. So far itís been the most comfortable backing pack Iíve ever used and Iím hoping to see how it feels with some bear meat on it. 3 more weeks!!!

We got tags for the Oregon Weneha, and this weekend the first snow drift across the road that we came to we got out to check it out and there was a big ol wolf track right down the middle of the drift/road.  No other boot marks or any other tracks in the snow, just a single big ol wolf track.  we checked around to see if there was other tracks around the drift, but just the one.  Soo, my opening weekend report on the South Blues is as to be expected:  Lots of snow and Couldn't get very far up at all.  :o :o :o We're gonna wait 2 weeks and hope some of the snow melts off and we can get in there and get after em!  Hopefully you guys on the North end were able to get in somewhere's and get in some hunting.  Good luck to all!

Weíve seen three bears so far, but nothing to write home about. Way less pressure when youíre shooting them with a camera! 😂

We had a great first weekend. Spent 2 nights and 3 days in the wilderness. I saw 1 bear and we put about 25 miles on the ground. The weather was great, sun, rain, hail and snow 😂. Couldnít have asked for a better first trip. I canít wait for the next trip in a couple of weeks.

We had a great first weekend. Spent 2 nights and 3 days in the wilderness. I saw 1 bear and we put about 25 miles on the ground. The weather was great, sun, rain, hail and snow 😂. Couldnít have asked for a better first trip. I canít wait for the next trip in a couple of weeks.
