Bearpaw Season - Fall 2021
« on: August 19, 2021, 11:33:46 AM »
It's been a crazy summer, we are making lots of improvements throughout our business that will yield many benefits over the long term. At the same time mother nature has provided some challenges, this photo is only three days ago, this forest fire barely missed one of our main base camps and home in Idaho, it was a close call. Fire is still burning on two sides of us within a couple hundred yards of our place, so we are hoping the winds do not get bad again because the fire could run again and get across the new fire line. On a lucky note there are several homes located right in the burning path where the fire went through, sprinkler systems saved every home.

Brian has a pig named Wilbur, someday the plan is that Wilbur will be ham & bacon, but he told the fire fighters if the fire gets the pig but they save the house, he'll share the pig with them!  :chuckle:

We started our fall bear hunts last week, we were after a bear for three days with our first hunter, we think it was the same bear in about the exact same spot every day, we spotted him three different times but he never gave us a clear shot, unfortunately our first hunter went home without a bear.

This week has been better, our next two hunters have done well, Ronnie nailed a boar the first day, Aaron passed a little bear on the first day, and this morning Aaron put the hammer down on an older sow. Congrats guys, I love it when a PLAN COMES TOGETHER!

Last week the hunters saw three bear but didnít get any shots off and unfortunately went home empty handed.

This week on the first morning the hunter hit a large Bear hard that we had located and were watching for. We spent the rest of the day looking for that Bear but could not find him. Every now and then that unfortunately happens, all you can do is try your best to find the animal. We hunted bear again yesterday with no luck.

Today Mike wanted to hunt turkey, he took a shotgun, so far this morning he missed a tom but nailed a hen. Congrats Mike! Now the hunt continues!

Unfortunately I think we are starting to see impacts of blue tongue. We found a dead deer in a waterhole and saw another very sick doe that could barely walk. Obviously we donít know for sure itís blue tongue but deer are being found dead in many locations now. At least 8 deer were found dead within the city limits of Colville this week.

Guide Zach found a covered up buck this morning. Itís mostly eaten, we donít know if a cougar or bear found a dead deer and is eating it or if a cougar made a kill, both seasons are open and both predators will cover their cache, so Mike is going to watch that kill this evening, it might provide a great cougar or bear opportunity and snce itís a natural kill itís legal to shoot a bear at it too. Hopefully it gets visited before dark.

Well, that's tough. I hope the cooler weather will bring some relief and some RAIN. Maybe that'll help.  :dunno:

Thanks John, it's one of the benefits, being a part of those memories.

I'm hoping we get a good frost soon to slow this blue tongue down before it gets really bad. They say frost kills it.

John saw this buck on the first morning of his hunt, the archery opener here in NE WA, but there were some smaller bucks in the way and he didnít have a shot. At lunch we discussed the options and he wanted to go back to the same blind, that evening he saw the same buck again, this time the buck was alone, twang, the buck only made it 30 yards, end of story! Nice shooting John!

We are elk hunting now, elk have not been talking much yet but Daniel had a raghorn bull come in totally silent that his hunter drilled and we had another 6x6 bull come in yesterday but the hunter didnít use his rangefinder and shot right over the back of the bull. Unfortunately the hunters had to leave early due to a medical emergency in his family. Two out of three hunters this week had shots so in spite of a lack of bugling we had a pretty good week. Hereís the Raghorn that Ken drilled, good shooting Ken!

We packed in a new drop camp this week to a new area that we haven't hunted much in the past. I packed a 6x6 bull out of there two years ago that one of the guides and his hunter had gotten. Zach scouted it this week and found plenty of fresh elk sign, so we have the camp set close to where the elk are at now, I'm hoping we can get the hunters in there Sunday, hopefully they are fairly quite in camp and they have some great luck. I don't know yet if they really know how to call or not, I guess we'll know that after they hunt for a week. Even if they can't call, there is some good game trails to sit along and some excellent glassing and stalking potential. Fingers are crossed for them to have a great hunt.

Yesterday on the first day of the hunt, another 6x6 bull was called in, the bull was screaming and tearing up brush, unfortunately the hunter missed at 18 yards!

On a brighter note, our bear hunter from Michigan nailed a 5-9 blackie on the first day of his hunt with Ray. Good job Ray and Larry!

I'm not sure you can ever live down missing a 6x6 at 18 yards. I bet it's an experience he'll never forget though. Good luck out there Dale, great pics so far.

Brandon from Michigan stuck this spiker, his first elk, this morning, it only went about 15 yards and dropped, nice going Brandon!

 :chuckle:  I didn't get your comment at first, I've been so busy this fall I've missed a lot of the news, our hunters were joking about it and I had to ask what it was about, too funny!

This fall we've had a mixed bag of success, some of our hunting has gone very well but some hunts have been very tough due to various factors. Nonetheless we still managed to fill some tags and get a few good animals. John dropped this bull on the first day of his Washington hunt with Daniel.

Even though our September archery elk hunters had a lot of shot opportunities our October rifle season was very tough, hereís one of the rifle season bulls taken this year.

Washington Whitetail season is obviously another tough season this year, going into season we knew it was going to be tough because of the blue tongue die off. Weíve actually found dead heads from several of the better bucks, it seemed to impact older bucks more. We turned away most of the hunters who contacted us this fall wanting to hunt. We figured we had enough hunters already booked for the amount of bucks we are seeing now. Our first hunt went well with 5 hunters taking 5 bucks the first day of their hunt and our second hunt went equally as well with 4 hunters taking 4 bucks. Iím really hoping our last hunt goes as well?

Washington Whitetail
Our last group hunting now are mostly long time repeat hunters, one guy decided to postpone his hunt till next year due to the blue tongue die off, the majority said they are coming anyway even if they don't get deer, this is their vacation, they just enjoy coming. So far all have had shot opportunists at small bucks that they passed, and a few guys either missed or didn't quite get shots at bigger bucks, but this group is letting the smaller bucks have another year to grow, this is the last day of season so I'm hoping they get one or two of the bigger bucks they've seen.

Kind of crazy, all the guys were out hunting and the wife looks out the front of the house at her car and there is a 4x4 buck standing in the driveway behind her car a couple days ago!  :chuckle:

Idaho Moose
Our last moose hunter nailed a nice bull on his second hunt day. Guides Russell and Brook took the horses and rode Jonas several miles in a gated area and then rode into some canyon areas where they had seen some bulls earlier in the season, they saw 5 cows and then they rode up on a bull that took off running, it had wide paddles and plenty of points, by the time the Jonas had dismounted and got on his shooting sticks the bull had made out to well over 400 yards, but Jonas was up to the task and made the shot. This was about 4pm, then the work started, and then they had a really long ride back out, they never got back until 1am and were totally whipped. Jonas said this was a hunt he would never forget and that several of his friends would be applying for the tag to come and moose hunt with us, I attached a photo of Jonas' bull.

If anyone is wondering, the bull had testes but they were very small, I doubt they were functional, thus the likely reason he had not rubbed clean. Through the years we have taken many velvet bucks late in the hunting season, in every case those bucks did not have testes and apparently lacked the drive to rub their antlers.

Last year Bridger got one of our best bucks of the season, this year his brother Remington hunted with us. Many of the bucks seen by our hunters this year were young bucks, despite the unusually tough hunting season and all the smaller bucks that were seen, Jake and Remington found a nice buck that Remington tagged the first week of deer season. Congrats to Remington for getting this great buck!
