The Bear season here in Washington opens up on August 1st for the majority of the state.The Game Dept got rid of the spring season a number of years ago,unfortunately.
Our Turkey season opens up on the 15th of April though.This will be the first year for us hunting Turkeys so it should be interesting. ;)

Our black bear season is pretty much open year round for most of the state. Unless we have an early spring I wont be heading out til may timeframe. I'm going upnorth for a 2 week griz hunt around the middle of may.

Good luck to all on your bear season.

I just picked up my tags and I'll have to look again, but turkey and bear open at the same time. I'm heading for turkey first. It would be great to pop one and get it into the freezer. I've only had wild turkey once and that was a very small smoked peice. But was impressed with what I did have....
A griz hunt. I am very enviouse. You useing a bow? Or is that just a we bit to much excitement!!! :D :D :D

No bow. my balls arent that big. I am taking my ruger SBH just incase the situation arises. I figure a 320gr cast going around 1300fps should do the job. If not I can run fast :D

On the learning chanel, I saw a griz out run and catch an elk. That would mean one would have to be able to out run an elk, including all of the dodging.......

Moosie,

Brown bear season opened 5 days ago. It's been kinda cold, and it snowed recently, so I'm not in too much of a hurry. Haven't heard of any bears being spotted yet anyhow.

Now I just gotta scrounge up the $25.00 and go buy a tag...

;)
