I think my initial post disappeared. I Hunted I think Montana 316 near Wise river for spring bear in 2015, I stumbled across a smaller bear and brought him home, but I'm thinking about a return trip for a bigger specimen. Would I be better in one of the units further North? Seemed like talking with the locals there was "a" bear in this or that creek like everyone knew of the 3-5 bears in the area. What little chance I had to get out I hunted mostly the lower already greened up country, should I be hunting higher more along the snowline rather than below it?
