I was not able to get time off to go hunt bear over north of Boise ( Council area) but sent a couple of my dogs with my buddies guess the first day they caught 3 and let the air out of 2 of them no monsters biggest one was 5'10" , respectable though . They have 8 tags they are planning on filling . I really dont care about the killing but sure miss some of the best bear hunting there is .My best over there for one day is 4 bear all seperate races and no cubs . Its a blast.Guess I will take the 2 dogs I kept and catch a couple this weekend . Later .
