Well another year has gone by since last spring bear season. It opened yesterday, on May 1. I ws not able to go yesterday or today due to having to work. I am going out in the morning to attempt to find me a bear. I am going to a drainage that tops out as a nice bowl and and has several pockets of trees scatterd about it. There are a couple of water holes and it is a south facing slope. The next drainage over is where I saw the sow and cub in August. Just over the ridge is where I had the night feeders that were chowing out on my 100 pound a day smorgosboard. Someone from the FS told me they have seen lots of sign up there. I will find out tomorrow. It should be just a morning hunt. It is close to home and there are a couple of vantage ponts where you can see most of the drainage and bowl. If nothing else, I will be out in the hills and enjoying the mountains.
