Thanks!

I just bought a bear call from BearmanRik on here.   Can't wait to get it.

I think they come with a 2 bear guarantee the first year.      :dunno:
read the small print Dan-o, you must wear bacon earrings and a bologna thong, all guarantees null and void if this is not followed..oh and need pics,lol
With pink crocs? I don't have one of the calls but I would assume the pink crocs are a must for the outfit and call to work...

I have a pink call and never wear crocs, ewww.  But bacon, bacon is always a good cover scent for bear chasing


Good luck

Sorry bro. Your Avatar does bring out the best in us lol! All honesty though. The way we found bear sign was hitting the edges of the reprod and looking for where the bears had peeled the bark back. I feel like finding a good spot with lots of that sign and then sitting 100 yards or so out of the edge and calling might get you what you are looking for.

Got my info packet in the mail.......   starting to get excited!

Trying to decide between my trusty 7mm Mag and my Ruger guide gun in 45-70. It has a 1.5-5X scope because I can't shoot iron sights anymore (I've got retinal sluffing that can't be corrected with glasses and isn't a simple Lasik surgery).

What are the odds of getting a shot at a bear past 200 yards out there?

And....... if anyone wants to PM me any Kapowsin bear info, I'm a mighty appreciative guy.   Big thanks to those who've helped so far.

I've hunted bear a lot last year on Hancock land and 200 yds just might be a little short. I've seen 5 different bear last year. They ranged from 250 to 400 yards.

Thank you for the input.

That seals the deal for taking the 7mm Mag.

This early in the year you wont be able to get up high to glass.  So my guess is 200 yard shot or less is more likely.  I think usually around July is when enough snow melts up high to make it up to any real elevation.

Never shot a bear in there over 20 yards. Hunt where the bears are comfortable and your not :chuckle: most the people hunting for bears are petrified of them,from what I've learned taking guys in there.

Take both and use whichever one suits the situation imo. If you are hiking some of the thicker stuff drag the 45-70 along. There are a lot of grown in old logging roads to hike down that should show sign of bears or have bears using them as travel corridors. YES! They use those old roads a lot. Had a buddy with multiple trail cam pics of bears hoofing it up and down the grown in roads. In those areas I would say 75-100 yards is max range you will get and most I would say will be within 40-60 yards. If you are setting up on top of a hill to glass cuts and reprod I would keep the 7mm by you in case yogi pops out 200-400 yards away. I don't know what your comfort zone is for shooting but 400 yards isn't too much of a holdover for a fast traveling 7mm bullet. You might see some bears from farther away, 600 yards + but you should either be able to sneak close enough for a shot or if you are like some of the guys on here the longer pokes are in the comfort range. As I said before. Good luck man! I hope to see a picture of you with a big dead bear on here when the season gets going!
