    Grizzly Bear Hunt 2019

    I always describe the “Line” on a tundra hike as a drunken surveyor following a three legged coyote.

    Bear hunting from water

    I know there are guys floating the Grande Rhonde in Oregon, drift boats and or rafts only, for spring bear. Haven’t talked to anyone who has done it but there are a lot of bears in the breaks.

    Hells Canyon Bear Hunting

    Lots of bears. Hunted elk and the occasional bear in there in the late 80 early 90s. It’ll be spot and stalk hunting with all the long range shooting potential I guy could want want. We were always north of Hat point, Oregon side. Spectacular country, not for the faint of heart.

    How many trips for a solo pack-out

    I’ve done it 42 or 44 times on my tag, did four extra this fall for friends. God knows how many in total. Last time I did a bull in two trips was 30 years ago, I was 35. Dumb. Most of my elk are killed in the same canyon. Last 1/2 to 3/4 mile you gain about 1200 feet. I’m very content to take...

    Choosing a guide service

    To guide in the National Forest the operators need to have a Conditional use permit, pick your region, see who’s got a permit and while your at it see if those operators have any complaints or violations. You might be able to weed out a poor operator right there. Check with the state licensing...

    Well There Goes Idaho

    Hell we had a Governor in Oregon back in the 70s that pleaded with Californians to visit but don’t stay. The add campaign didn’t work. Look at Portland. Boise is next, read it’s the fastest growing city in the west.

    Anyone use Bear Spray past 4 Years?

    I too use the old stuff for training our guides and guests. I’ve seen the really old stuff hardly work as described above. In addition to training the old stuff can be used to drive porcupines out from under the lodge or guest cabins and drive bats out of the eves. It’s not a permanent solution...
