I have Coastal Olympic Peninsula November Bear Questions
« on: October 15, 2021, 07:07:38 PM »
I realize there are not a lot bears on the Olympic peninsula  :chuckle:, however if a guy was going after black bear on the peninsula how would you advise him to hunt them in early November? I have only harvested bear in alpine gorging on berries. I am planning a fun, wet, elusive elk trip and will have a second bear tag. Thanks for any advice. Should I call or glass? All of the above? Thanks for any advice. Either way it'll be a good time.

I don't have any knowledge for you, but wherever you end up, keep an eye out for mushroom pickers. Coastal areas are teaming with mushrooms right now. Good luck

They like to roll around in the brush wearing black flat jackets with the hoods up to make them look like a bear with a big headů glassed one for a few minutes before

For some reason, Asian pickers tend to wear black clothing. One was killed a few years ago, mistaken for a bear.

Yes good call mushroom hunters. I dabble in the shroom hunting while looking for the primary target. Chanterelle, oyster, and lobster are all i am good at finding. I did however run into some lions mane and did not know it. Seen some nice Aminita up a few weeks ago.

I have a sow and triplets coming down out of the national forest / park raiding my and my neighbor's orchards this year. Old logging camps and homesteads planted trees of interest, you might take a look at some old maps. Most of my encounters with bears west of Lake Crescent have been rather random though.

Stumps seem to be a tasty forest food.  I've seen so many stumps lately just ripped up to get bug larvae.  During modern elk, most of the bears I see are walking the roads and pawing on the logs/stumps next to the road.  Still some blackberries around.  Depending on where you're at on the coast, there are a few areas with the evergreen huckleberries--they like those.
