Re: Bearwhackin'

Sounds like you and your gear are tuned and ready for this fall's hunting seasons with a 400+ yard shot on a bear. Congrats on some fine shooting in a hurry!

Hunting bear has something about it that just makes it special.

Thank you.
And ya, Bear Whackin' spot & stalk style is a special kind of hunt all on its own. I got bit with the Bear Whackin' bug a while back, & over the years it has become one of my favorite (if not The favorite) hunts I do every year. There is nothing like it. I love the high places where few tread.

I told my wife the same thing, she told me we're about out of elk meat.

Dramatic pictures!

Any one of those draws can hold a bear or two. No roads up there. You've just gotta be able to start at the bottom & climb 2-3000+ vertical feet for every 1-1/2 miles or less in to get to the ridge & glass a new series of draws every day. Plus pack em out after you whack em'. 2+ trips a day in up to 117* heat After you lay the smack down on one will humble you very quickly! Steep is an understatement. (See my signature pic).
Makes it real hard to do alone! ALOT of bloody socks, & bruised bones, & muscles so tired the literally give up on you. No matter how much drive you've got, it's gonna find your limit, & push you to it.
I guess it's all part of the allure.

That looks like N.E. maybe Wallowa County? Good bear country, but tough, tough, tough....
