Holy crap. Well I guess we will be rolling with 2 trucks just in case. Good to know how bad it can be.

two trucks = double the towing bill      :chuckle:

Yeah, trucks #2, 3 and 4 didnt help one bit.  Just more rigs to dig out.

Hey, have you bar' hunters thought about maybe camping down the hill and taking quads in?

Now what the hell would be the fun in that?  A little "surprise camping" never hurt anybody.

Attempted some shed hunting in this unit on Monday.  Still 2+ feet of snow in some areas, and plenty of mud!

I have a tag as well and will be in the unit most weekends from now on until I fill it or season ends. Have deer hunted it before but never bear. If anyone wants to compare notes via a PM or over a beer out there let me know. Or if anyone needs a hand getting a bear out I would be happy to help if I am in the area.

Been up here for 2 hours and seen two bears already. Big bears but a loooooong ways off. Itís nice when scouting pays off though.

Ended up with 4 bears on the day. Made a move on one, had a shot at 450 yards before he went over the ridge but not a good rest. Didnt want to pull the trigger on a a marginal opportunity so early on, even though he was pretty nice. Raining tonight...

Ended the weekend with 11 adult bears spotted, 3 of which were sows with cubs. Saw 5 cubs, so 16 bears total through 3 days of hunting. Not bad! Dropped in on a boar we spotted from a mile away last night, closed the distance to 200 yards just to see his butt going over the ridge into thick timber. Was a great spot and stalk, just missed an opportunity by about 90 seconds.

For those of you with Huck tags, get out there. Bears are moving. Only saw 8 deer and 1 elk the whole weekend and heard wolves two nights ago. The ungulates need help. Just don't come to my spot  :chuckle:

Hunted from Saturday afternoon until last night tonight. Missed a boar Saturday night, video confirmed right over his back. Had another boar this morning pop out at over 2000 yards away and pushed into private. Put a hail mary stalk on the biggest boar we've seen this year, saw him a little over a mile away at 7-730ish and chased him. Gone by the time we got there. Heard lots of growling and fighting in thick timbered draws that I can only assume was bears fighting a couple times over the weekend.

Total cubless bear count for the weekend: 4 or 5
Sows with cubs: 3 sows with 5 cubs between them.
Saw 4 moose, few deer, called in a coyote to 100 yards, found a moose paddle, and some wolf tracks from the pack we heard last weekend. Had rain, wind, snow, fog and sun. Eventful trip!

Also that's a size 15 boot those tracks are next too...
