Ridgeratt, That's where I'm headed.  Spotted a bruiser this morning.  Maybe it was your backyard?

Eleven days.  Seen two.  One too far, one too near.  5 mile hike this am.  Heading home to regroup.  That's all I got.

I would have thought that with 3 members that are admitting to the tag someone would have posted some happy dance photos.

Any local rumors of sightings or kills?  Someone convince me to take another run at it.  I'm saving enough fuel to make it to Toppenish.

That wouldn't be me.  Dodge Ram flatbed pulling a 20' enclosed trailer.  Green canoe on the truck.  Might not take canoe next trip.  Got out ahead of the weekend crowd.

I was up there last Friday-Sunday.  Spotted a possible decent bear on Saturday morning, but only had time to throw up the glass and catch a view of it's rump before it disappeared.  That evening, spotted 2 cubs about 800 yards away.  Heading back up in the AM until Sunday to see what's moving.

going to be a lot of ATV's out this weekend, I've been seeing a bunch heading up to go camping and rip around.  I'd focus on areas well away from all that holiday weekend traffic.  :twocents:

Coming down from Elbow Lake?  They might have been the campers that cut the way in.

Late start, but taking another run at it in the morning.  Hope to get trailer parked and hunting before sundown.

I feel like this is going to be a story of sightings.  On my 13th day of hunting (2nd this trip) I spotted my 3rd bear.  Rained most of the night, and fog hung low this morning.  Waited the fog out by hunting the low ground, and glassing patches thru the fog.  This allowed time for the logging trucks to get on the mountain, load, and head down the rain greased 2 track that I needed to traverse to high ground.  And me on tires the tire shop refused to rotate.  After countless blind corners and meeting only one loaded truck, I made it to the high ground, parked at a trail and headed higher.  The cut I planned for was grown over more than map showed, but was able to glass a number of areas.   :yike:  A bear in an opening.  Looks like a good one with reddish coloring.  Check map, gps, Onx.   :bash:  Maybe I can get to where I can make a shot.  Not to be, afraid the recovery would turn into an international incident.  :bdid:  Anybody got connections with the PM?  Give me a pm if so.  OK, hike back to the truck for my RR call.  Now the wind is blowing straight north.  I'll be back.  Waited for a loaded truck to follow down the hill.
