Have never truly hunted for bear, bear season has always been a reason to pack a rifle while scouting deer/elk. 

 :yeah: Except this year I will be taking the time to go after a bear. I have a nice spot that has lots of berries, scat, a few peels, and a bunch of trail cam pics. I plan to pack the foxpro too. Hope to get one this year! Good luck to everyone

Saw 2 bears first scouting trip out.  Hurry up Thursday.
your killin me i think im scouting a bad area :bash:

They can move around, I've located 9 or 10 different bears in my scouting this year, one spot that held only a few bears last yr is loaded with sign this yr.  another spot that I found 20 to 30 peels and no less than 20 piles of scat on a mile of grade last yr is totally vacant this yr.  Cover lots of ground and look for obvious sign, they probably are just working a little different area this yr.  Dont need to focus so much on actually seeing a bear until season opens, just find the sign so you know where to start :twocents:
:yeah:

Last year it was 93 degrees opening day where I hunt in the cascades. Good thing I shot my bear at 7am otherwise it would spoil. I'm thinking I might wait until after archery elk this year for bears.

I've been scouting 3-4 times a week for the last 3 weeks or so and been seeing lots of fresh sign but still haven't got  eyes on anything I hope I have better timing Thursday.

Yep....he is a shooter indeed. He came into the nook and found what he was looking for....a muture sow that had just run off her two cubs. I've got him and her on cam hanging out making what I assume was some sweet bear love. He was fond of eating and grazing on oats and feed plot grasses that I had put down. Another site member...Eldplanko was in the same spot the day before trying to fill a spring tag. The brute hung out for about 5 days or so....I'm planning on going back with my bow and doing some calling....see if he is still around.

Good luck to those as well this coming season...looking forward to some additions to the 2013 bear thread.

Seriously?  Wouldn't that be hunting over bait?  I could careless what you guys do, but you might want to rethink this comment. :dunno:

Nope....the oats were put down months before....the all sprouted and grew up about a foot tall.....Look at the pic...see the taller grass that has a different texture...my pink flamingos are all but hidden...they loved eating the grass and would dig up the roots.

Not if you're feeding the deer. That's straight from our retired game wardens mouth.  :yike:
