man i cant wait till april 15th. Then its a whole month and a half of bruin bustin' and shed stackin'. I'm getting all excited just thinking about it. im going out with my new .50 cal kentucky rifle, backpack in. should get an nice one, where i hunt is like bear heaven, especially since hounds have been outlawed. onley a few guys hunt it, it is not unlickley to see 5+ bears every day glassing. the most i ever saw was 17 in one day, i missed a nice big dry sow. but this year im holding out for a nice boar.
