One of the few things that I miss about the Vail permit is my huckleberry spot. Itís only an hour drive but instead I have to go to my other spot in Idaho. Looks like I missed a banner year this year. Next summer Iíll head East and restock.

This is the only huckleberry I've ever known.  You'd have to pick a million of them to make anything usefull.

Had better luck with the huckleberries yesterday than we did with hucklebears.  Little Pathfinder and I got about a gallon.

Because other than the huckleberries, Vail sucks! Won't buy another Weyco permit until they do something about the rampant poaching by permit holders and brush pickers.

Actually a lot of service berries is more likely i guess.  Those suckers are seedy, and ive never found hawthorne on this mtn.

Found some in SW WA at 4000' yesterday.  Still a lot to come.  Salmonberries were loaded.  Topped off the huckleberry buckets.  Will have to check the hawthorns when get back to Kelly Hill.

they are so similar itís hard to say. Majority of the service berries I find are in the hawthorn patches.  I can tell you those areas are a nightmare to recover bear in. They crawl in deep in the tunnels of 1-2Ē spikes.

We found a pile of ripe huckleberries last week around 5200 ft. Stuffed myself with them on a lunch break!  Wish I had a way to pick more to bring back,  but I had elk on my mind!
