I made it to three forks a couple weeks ago. Came LaGrande through Troy. Zero snow.
Good luck!
How long you staying? Maybe see you toward end of week.

I get there Wednesday and staying through Sunday or maybe Monday morning. Headed however far past Three Forks I can get and still find a decent campsite. Will be in a Blue Ram 3500 with a canopy and bull bar.
how do you get farther then three forks??  All it does is loop back around from there.

It loops back around to the 40 rd that eventually goes to pomeroy.  But the snow won’t allow it right now.

exactly, it loops back around.  Been there lots of times.  If he wants to get to the 40 take the grouse flats pomeroy rd.  You may not be able to get to some of it, but you can come from both ends

He was talking about coming up from troy to the threeforks area and beyond (north of).  Not coming south down the 40.  Just a little internet miscommunication.   No way you are making it from Pomeroy to threeforks via 40 right now.

true statement!  This is the best we got on this coming weekend 2 years ago.  Scored 20 2/16”.  Squared 6’8” , you’re hitting it at a good time

On my way over now - this brings up my other question I’ve been debating. Hold out for something big or shoot the first boar I find?

this bear is far from common,  find what makes you happy.  Color, size, closeness to road!😂. Just have a fun hunt.

Made it to Clearwater lookout on Sunday. Probably could have made it around the snow but not much farther.

If you have never killed a bear, not sure how picky I'd be, just watch out for sow's with cubs they can hide really well.  It's not a gimmie over there, sometimes it takes a bit to find one.  If you are good at telling the difference try to shoot a boar, but it's not that easy, it has taken me years to make a good guess on the sex.  Now I have seen some huge sows and if I hadn't shot the boar chasing one in 17', I'd had been very happy to shoot the sow, she was a monster.  Be patient, sit and glass, keep that wind in your favor.  Be ready at all times, you never know when one will show up.  And take care of the meat, they are good eating.  Good luck man, I'm jealous!

Work happened. I can't make it out this weekend.
Sliverslinger, how far did you make it up the 40 Rd.?

Pretty slow over there right now, know of a couple bears taken but that’s it.  I hiked about 6 miles Friday and ended up watching a bear from 57 yards take a nap (no tag for me).  It was an awesome experience, over an hour I watched him! Bad pic but all I had.
