Are there any bears being killed? This is weird, right?

Hello!?
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

It's because everyone kept piping off that there is absolutely no reason to hunt spring bears before......"X" date.   :chuckle: :chuckle:  Now people won't even hit the woods till late May.......which means they will be fighting with all other spring draw folks.  Bears are out and about....I have pics to prove it.   :chuckle: :chuckle:

 :sry:  I'm behind but I got my truck back today, so look for me in the woods by the weekend and might not come out before the 1st or maybe the 15th.  :dunno:  I got some catching up to do.   :cmp1:

I will say we've done over thirty miles of hiking over three days of bear hunting and seen exactly one bear walking through a cut, zero poop and zero tracks. Been trying!

I gave it hell for a few days as well and didnít see any fresh sign or spot any. Going back over the week of the 10th for 3 or 4 days again so hopefully I have better luck. I left a few trail cams so hopefully they didnít go for a walk and I got some pictures of more than just branches in the wind

Beyond stoked to watch my dad whop his first ever spring bear in Oregon! He's been hunting for 50+ years and he said he's never gotten buck (bear) fever that bad  :chuckle: He was able to calm himself down and make a hell of a shot at 500 yards. I think he's hooked on this whole bear hunting thing

Congrats, very cool!!!   I know of one blues bear killed but the snow this year is bad. Later hunts will be better this year, the later the better.

Great look in bears :tup:
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
