Machias' 2018 Idaho Bear Season
« on: April 12, 2018, 10:54:03 AM »
Got my Idaho bear tag and baiting permit yesterday.  Figure I will start a thread for this year's spring season.  I'm not going to be in a rush to get any baits out this year.  I'll post some photos as I get set up and once they start coming in.  I hope everyone has a great spring season where ever you are hunting.  Be safe and good luck!

Can't wait to follow this one, a spring bear in ID is something I've always wanted to do.

Awesome

It sounds like it's time to get a new gun.
