I figure the same thing every time a coyote comes to my turkey calling, need to get that one!

We better get back on topic and help Rob!

Seat time is highly effective this time of year also,  especially in an area with a lot of sign.  Right now for bears is like November for deer and September for elk.  Boars ate looking for the ladies!

anyone got any sow in heat urine?  Pour some on your boots and start walking, a big boar will find you!

only option I use for bears in spring and fall is not listed and thats patience and glass and glass some more. I like to sit on vantage points to where I am in shooting range if I see a bear but also the abilty to glass even further and put a stalk on a bear. Pretty much anywhere in the mountains of sherman unit has bears all about patience and glassing.

that's what seat time means, not sat time in the vehicle! :chuckle:  The big boar we shot Saturday we sat 10+ hours in the same drainage

 :chuckle: places I hunt are very close to roads and you can see alot from the road, but the bears know how to navigate the country to not be seen from the road. I have lost count how many times Ive watched bears walk right under guys sitting on the road glassing and they had no clue there were bears under 400 yards from them

Best strategy is to not have a permit.  In 3 days of hiking around ive stumbled upon 4 bears inside 100 yards without spooking them.  Yesterday morning hanging cams i came right up on the best bear ive ever laid eyes on at about 40 yards.  Huge bear, beautiful light cinnamon coat.  Looked like a damn grizz but it wasnt.

Calling in a bear is a real rush, especially when they creep up on you to within the length of your Chevy 1500 hood.
I couldn't care less about what anybody says..............
