Haven't had a chance to get in there yet. Hopefully Sunday. Anyone know where the current snowline is at?

Buddy won't give up his locals.. he has been trying to get one with his longbow for the past 4 years in there and hasn't been able to close the gap... so he doesn't want to give up the goods lol! Sorry man, I tried. I even offered some good bourbon!

Offer him some bad bourbon!

I need the 411

We don't do bad bourbon anymore lol. Our tastes have outgrown that stuff... we do drink a bottle of Jameson for good measure every now and then but that's about as cheap as we go lol. To be honest man. Like I said, best bet is to just hit the old grown in skidders. They use them as travel corridors and MOST of the people that will be in there looking for bears won't be hiking in anywhere.

I have the tag and didn't even think about snow being an issue. I have about 20 places marked on maps I want to check out, but now I'm worried most will be to high! Better look at the map again and have lower elevation spots picked out as well. I noticed a lot of skunk cabbage when I went in to get my key.

Anyone ever have issues with trees blowing across the road? I normally bring my saw, but didn't know if they freak out if you have to cut a tree out of the road without letting them know.

You have gotten lots of hints, however RASBO is right about getting in deep where it is dark and uncomfortable for you but not the bears. He and others on this site helped me a great deal hunting in there and I learned a great deal from him. Get away from everyone, explore and find the spots that are dark that may lead to clearings, good grass, or fresh peals and then use that awesome new call. I have had success there and other places using the techniques I learned from Him and others on this site. Besides getting close to your prey is a rush and a whole new experience if you have not had it yet with a bear.  The bologna bikini with a bacon belt for my side arm I think was the key lesson learned for me.
