Snow in the Blues??
« on: April 03, 2018, 04:31:09 AM »
Hello fellow Spring hunters! So i'm taking my 16 year old brother in law for his 1st bear hunt, we have Spring bear tags for the Oregon Weneha, but I'm just seeing if anyone would share how it's looking on the North end of the Blues, How is the snowpack looking? More, Less, average?  I'm trying to plan ahead, with his schooling, for some long weekends and haven't made it over to see if its going to be a May show or if we're going to be able to get in there early. he is way excited and hoping to notch his 1st bear tag.  Good luck to all tag holders, Turkey chasers and Shed hunters!

We take our sidekicks in there during spring bear no prob. Drop your air to 9 pounds and you can ride on top of the snow pack. Or you can bring your snow machine

Its been oh look spring, then haha fooled you still winter.  It keeps snowing.  I would plan for snow then check right before a trip.

I was teasing a coworker 2 days ago he asked if I had snow at camp, told him who knows I will find out when I get there, then we said could be zero inches or 7 feet 😂😂😂  good times.

I appreciate the feedback guys, looks like some more snow coming this week.  I talked to the bio and he said it should be a good spring for tagholders in the Blues.

I have no doubt that the bio would say anything different
