While ya'll enjoy the thrill of hunting the elusive Black Bear, here in Louisiana I will be running a gopher trap line in my front yard! And understand this: I AM NOT JEALOUS!, I AM NOT JEALOUS! I AM NOT JE...........................
WAY too much. Down here in the Valley we haven't seen snow for ever, And the Front side (South faceing) hills that I look into every day I can See the line rising daily. That being said, there are some N facing bends in the roads that even 2 weeks after the Opener you need to have a Wench to access... I'll be in the Hills Sunday with a Camera. I'll report back then.
Draftstud, WHOoooohh , For a min there I almost thought you were Jealous...
The snowpack is melting way to fast, faster then whats needed to maintain a good run off..... places like the owhyees was 146% of normal snowpack this winter but as of yesterday its only 98% of normal snowpack, which means its warmed up so fast most the run-off is being absorbed into the atmosphere or soaked into the ground, its not good. Places in the Boise drainage were well over 100 % of normal snowpack but theres places right now that are struggling to be 80% of normal for this time of yr. Snows going fast, on the upside I geuss bear season you will be able to get around earlier up on the mnt, but downside is alot of people including me, depend on that run-off to fill the reservoirs for irrigation water, cause we have been in a drought the last couple yrs and almost can;t afford another one.
Moosie are you sure you don't need a "winch" to access? If you really meant wench, what does she look like? If you have a bunch of wenches along when you go spring bear hunting no wonder you enjoy it so much.
Going on a little pack trip this weekend to scout and find sheds, may even pack my fly rod along. I wish we could bait up here it would make things a whole lot easier. I was thinking though is it baiting if I pack a little stove around and cook bacon all day long?
