I am certainly ready! Going to try to get my first bear, have the southwest tag and found some really good looking public land spots yesterday. Good luck to all.

Don’t think I’m gonna make it over to Emily yet, pictures on odot cameras look pretty snowy still. Haha

Saw a Sow and cubs last weekend. Couldn't find the elk I'd been watching though, sucks when you live two hours away and arent the only one watching them... Snow is melting/melted off at some of the lower elevations.

If theirs one thing I have learned hunting - The closer you are the faster things happen.
Something like that! The camera is about 300 yards from the bear and I'm 165 yards from it. I thought his fate was sealed. Just as I approached the log I would lay down and shoot from, he caught me. I guess I moved a little quick but I was trying to beat the wind. He looked hard for a couple seconds and shy'd away into the timber without giving me a shot I liked. I was a little frustrated. Since he didn't wind me I think I will get another crack at him.

I could have shot him from the sticks at any time, but I saw that log and knew I could get to it for a solid prone shot... I needed like maybe 10 more seconds.

Sweet pic at least!! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I’ve got some time to kill until the 4-6k range I wanna hunt is really accessible. Plenty of time to do step ups :/
