anybody out chasing bear yet? Our season opened last weekend, just too wet and miserable to go look. Out here we hunt them like any other big game. Lots of glassing, then sneak into range. Here is last springs bear, 180#, 3 year old boat. Zero fat and a great eater. The crease on the leg is a follow up western shoot out. Hunting solo, last light, roll him down a hill into a creek bottom overgrown with brush. Thought he was dead. Nope, jump down, brush starts moving and he was growling. Unload the gun from the hip into the brush from 10', and take off running like a little girl. Came back in the morn with help.
