 :(

I didn't know they lured them with bait. 

I guess that makes sense if you're a timber company.

With that being said I still saw two bears and screwed up with a clean miss at 200 yards like a bonehead a couple springs ago so I’d rather have the permit than be not selected  :bash:
60% of the time, it works every time.

I'm guessing that's why it's a tough hunt, but I wouldn't let that get you down.  You'll be out chasing bears when most of us can't, plus, the bonus is you might find some nice antlers down those open gates.

Agreed. 

Worst case is it's an excuse to get out in the woods.

Plenty of bears on the south side,they won't walk up and smell your barrel though..so finding some crappy steep drainage with a long ridge will work..a place they feel comfortable

Some pointerz, bears poop in the woods if you find bear poop you might find bears.  Picnic baskets and jelly donuts are good camo.  You can never go wrong with wearing bacon scented clothes.

You're welcome  :chuckle:

Gee, what would I do without you?

Gotta admit, I'm getting kind of excited for this. 

Haven't been there in so long I don't even know what will be familiar.

Good luck to you. I don't know about spring time in there but I hunting a LOT in there during the archery seasons. LOTS of elk, LOTS of grouse, LOTS of deer (when its not deer season), and we did see bear sign. We didn't see any bears but we did see a big ol kitty with no shot sadly... I hope you get one! We talked to other people that saw them early morning during September. With the cooler temps I hope they are out and roaming more for your hunt!

Thanks!

I just bought a bear call from BearmanRik on here.   Can't wait to get it.

I think they come with a 2 bear guarantee the first year.      :dunno:

Maybe I misunderstood the guarantee on the bear call......     ;)

Either way, I'm excited to get my new bear call and hunt griz (ok.... black bears) this spring.
