Seen a sow with triplets yesterday. Seemed sleepy still... when she got out of the tree she had scurried up, she layed down at  the base of the tree and napped/nursed her cubs.

They are out. Just very lethargic still. I wouldn't get too excited about not seeing much movement yet. Little warmer weather and good grass towards the middle of the season generally gets the activity going. I've drawn 5 spring tags. All successful. Drawn 117 twice. My advice to you would be to give it a couple more weeks if possible. As well as a small elevation drop. 3-4000' elevation in my experiences with these permits is generally a little too high. Last year was the earliest time I have connected on a spring bear on April 23rd. Seen several bears early and very low.

A couple years ago, my son and I saw tracks in the snow opening weekend of Turkey season in the Teannaway.

Good luck!
