Thanks guys, I think if I haven't got it done by the end of May then I will defiantly post up asking for some tips to better my odds of filling the tag.  If anyone has any info they want to PM me though I wont turn down Intel.

Does anyone know if the bear bombs are legal to use or would they be considered baiting? And if they are legal has anybody had any success with them?

I also drew for the Huckleberry unit and I've never been in that unit. If someone wants to join me or help me eliminate a fawn killer, I would be very appreciative of any info that someone wants to share.

I will be up in 101 for spring bear, and can help you out in 121 if you need it. Shoot me a pm and we can connect.

I drew spring bear for the first time and read on the WDFW site that they mail you a packet for sending in the tooth to age, do they also send a "tag" for spring bear?  I figure they send something so you could prove you have a spring bear permit.

I know the spring bear counts to the 2 bear limit so I am more interested if the packet has some kind of documentation for the permit and sorry if this is a stupid question guys.

Thanks,

Chris

In my opinion, the only “stupid” question is the one not asked. Looks like you have the answers. In a nut shell, just a printout that you need to carry with you and they provide an envelope for the tooth. Then you have your regular season license and bear tag that you will use.

I received the packet today. If you have any questions after you get yours, ask away.

Good luck! Looking forward to seeing you post one down!

I am planning on being over there every other weekend starting the 1st weekend of April I can try and remember to keep you posted of where I find sign and stuff.

On another note does anyone that lives near Coleville or Springdale want to fill me in on what elevation the snow line is?  I was also wondering if the DNR land over in 121 is gated walk in access or if the roads are open to drive up.  I plan on hitting the lower elevations(2000-2400') in 2 weeks and figured that would be safe.

Thanks,

Chris
