Spring bear season is looking promising in Idaho, still have two to three feet of snow in most areas, but on the warm days it's melting fast. Season opens day after tomorrow, we'll use a tracked machine or snowmobile to start baits.

We've got plenty of baits out, but there's a lot of snow in the Idaho mountains yet, some of our baits are on top of three feet of snow, not a single bear track at any of our baits yet. In some of the lower areas closer to Lewiston, Orofino, or Riggins the bear are probably coming out but many of the higher areas still have a lot of snow.

Yesterday all day we had a lone tom gobbling his brains out, today, I think it's the same tom has a hen and another tom in tow, and neither tom will gobble at all. Some hunters think the birds shut up because they get hunted, now that these birds have a hen they both shut up even though they aren't being hunted, they are henned up!

This bird looks almost like a Jake, but he was an old limb hanger that's all beat up, he had lost most of his tail, it was growing out again, he had no beard (nothing), a bunch of other feathers were missing too from fighting or from a predator, but he had about 1 inch spurs and good body weight. He doesn't have any worries, he's headed for the freezer.

Yeah, for us it looks like we can salvage a little under half our hunts. For the hunters, they all seem tired of covid, they are really enjoying the time outdoors.

I've got room for more turkey and bear hunters, send me a message if you want to come hunting.

I've also done a few turkey maps this week, I've still got plenty of good hunting spots to send hunters this season, send me a message if you need some good areas to hunt and want to buy a turkey map or bear map.

Our first two Idaho bear hunters last week cancelled due to covid travel quarantine restrictions where they work.

Doug and Kathy are our first two Idaho spring bear hunters. Doug and guide Brian chased a big bear with the hounds on the first morning of the hunt, it was a big mean boar that wouldn't tree, Brian managed to catch the hounds when the bear crossed the road headed for big country, one of the hounds had gotten beat up pretty badly by the bear but is already recovering well. Kathy who was hunting with Brandon passed a small bear the first morning and then passed a little bigger bear in the evening. On the second morning it was raining hard so nobody hunted. On the second evening Doug nailed an average black boar with guide Brandon, nice shooting Doug, you tagged our first bear of our season, congrats!

So, fishing guides have to wait until May 15 before they can take clients and turkey guides can guide hunters now? I was under the assumption that all fishing/hunting guides had to wait until May 15 here in WA?

Not any kind of attack meant, but what's the official "rules" these days for guides with this ridiculous covid pandemic?

Not any kind of attack meant, but what's the official "rules" these days for guides with this ridiculous covid pandemic?

The rules in WA are pretty clear, guides and guests can't travel in the same vehicle or boat, we haven't been able to feed guests indoors, and we must maintain social distancing. We comply with all these. Each guest or family has their own cabin, each hunter follows the guide with their own vehicle, we don't hike or sit close to guests when hunting, we enhanced our sanitizing/cleaning, we ordered take out platters and utensils, we take meals to our guests cabin, set the meal down, knock on the door, guests pick up their meals and eat alone.

In Idaho we also have direct guidance from the state for operational procedures which we are following.

Thanks for your sincere concern for our well being!
Title: Re: Bearpaw Season - Spring 2020
Post by: bearpaw on May 13, 2020, 02:18:11 PM
FYI: The way I read the rules, fishing guides could operate if they had their guests follow in a different boat so that social distancing can be maintained, otherwise they would need to wait for the next phase of reopening.

Daniel drew a WA spring bear tag, he hunted yesterday morning and found a ton of good bear sign in one of our usual spots. He went back this afternoon and nailed this nice off-color bear with one shot at 250 yards. Great shot, congrats Daniel, that bear is going to make a beautiful rug.
Title: Re: Bearpaw Season - Spring 2020

Title: Re: Bearpaw Season - Spring 2020
Post by: bearpaw on May 13, 2020, 11:28:34 PM
We prefer to provide a lot more service than we can now, but in order to operate we had to modify and scale things back. The hunters have been very understanding and happy that they can finally hunt and it hasn't seemed to hurt their success.

Not on this bird, he came from a large private property that almost never has used chemicals/herbicides. I think it's just a fluke of nature on a big old bird.

Lars with a nice looking Merriams Tom. Birds are really breaking up and becoming less predictable, many hens are sitting nests and the hens that are not sitting donít appear to be as big of attraction now. Gobbling has been less, but there are still some birds gobbling.

Got set up close to a roost this morning, on some sloping ground, there were 9 toms here last night so we were pretty pumped. Pretty soon the first Tom started gobbling, oh yeah! 5 minutes later the hens started going off. We had to sit in fairly open spot to get a good view of where I thought the birds would come down. Two hens come off but sailed way out into the field behind us, next a hen landed 70 yards in front of us, suddenly one of the toms landed 25 yards right in front of us.

We waited, Hoping another Tom would land, but the Tom was slowly strutting his way towards the hen away from us, finally we decided to take the Tom before he got too far out, whammo, big Tom down.

The other birds went out into the field, there is another big Tom with them so we are waiting to see if we might get another chance.

It was a short, swift, but very successful turkey season, I missed posting a few birds that I didn't get photos of, and we had a lot of cancellations but I feel blessed that we had a good half season.

This bird finishes off the turkey season for us, our last two hunters passed a bunch of jakes, sacked up three long beards in two days, and headed for home, thanks guys, hope to see you next year!  :hello:

Yeah, I'm just trying to pay the bills and keep the guides employed so I don't lose any of them. I think we'll have a good fall season, hunters are booking hunts again. We've actually used the time down to finish some projects and start others. I started a shop a few years ago, we got the roof on it and filled it up, we never seemed to have time to get it completely finished and reorganize everything, nice to have it actually completed now.

I've been hearing some ugly rumors of all types of businesses that probably aren't going to reopen, I really feel bad for people who had thriving businesses that were suddenly destroyed so quickly and even longtime businesses that are in danger of failing. For every business that fails numerous employees are left jobless too, sure hope this can all turn around soon for everyone's benefit!

Summer is an excellent time to shoot coyotes, hides aren't in great shape, but the hunting opportunities are very good. Winter coyote hunts are also offered, if you want good hides winter is the best time to hunt. We have top notch predator hunting gear, NR Vision scopes, NR Vision binos and Rover lighting. Typically 2 to 6 coyotes are taken per night.
1 Day Hunt......$600 per hunter
2 Day Hunt....$1150 per hunter
3 Day Hunt... $1650 per hunter

Washington Ground Squirrels
We've got a couple ranches that need some squirrels removed, there are a few rock chucks too, not going to be as much shooting as the prairie dogs in Montana, but bring at least a couple hundred rounds per day, this is in the Colville area.
1 Day Hunt......$400 per hunter
2 Day Hunt......$850 per hunter
3 Day Hunt....$1150 per hunter
(2 Hunters Minimum)

Send me a message if interested.

There's a photo of a sow with three little cubs, one of the cubs is on top of her back, I tried to find that photo but misplaced it, if i see it again I'll post it, it's pretty cool.

We are almost done for the season, but I'm still hoping we get this bugger before season ends! He's only 30 yards from the stand in broad daylight!

I've shot quite a few mangy coyotes when i used to coyote hunt a lot, the mangy areas usually had no hair, I don't think it's mange for that reason, but obviously I have no way of knowing for sure.

Half of the bears I had coming to the bait had even less hair than that guy, some were practically naked!  :)

Hey hey, that's not the bait barrel hole!!!
