That's awesome guys are seeing bears. I was over there for the weekend. I only saw a bunch of rabbits. Anybody being spending any time up by Calispell Peak? I was up by there and didn't see anything. Lots of good country.

I think youíre a bit too high for right now. At least for where Iím seeing bears right now. By the time you get back over though youíll probably be right in em!
I was kinda wondering about that. Going to try and get back over there next weekend.

We killed one Saturday but it was the only bear we saw. Hot and dry and not tons of green grass. Calling for a little rain this week and also next week so last few weeks of the season should be better

A lot of stuff on this thread has been really encouraging. First time hunting this unit and I have a question on camping. How many of you camp in the unit versus driving daily? I have been doing a lot of E-scouting plus boots on the ground. Hoping to just find a spot on some federal land and stay the night. Not looking for where to camp, just if.

We did and just slept in the back of our trucks. That way we stayed mobile and could just find a place to park to crash out instead of having to drive back to a set camp

I did the same thing. Made sure I was on Forest Service land, found a spot to park, pitched the tent next to the truck, and up for first light

If your on the west side of the unit sand canyon rd takes you into the national forest and thereís some really nice meadows with camp sites in them.  Headed back over the 28th for 9 days.  Got the scouting out of the way last trip.

We found a area with lots of bear sign and decided to sit the cuts. After a hour of waiting he stepped out and I took the shot around 5:30pm

Just came back after 8 days of hunting and never saw a bear and saw scat in only one spot. I did see two different cats in the first four days of hunting both less than 30 yds. from my truck, very neat.
