Well this was supposed to work, but..... see post number 10 for more pics (Roy and Bigngreen helped me out)
Sorry for my computer/tech mental issues. I saved a pile of pics on Photo buckett.
Oh well. We had a great time playing around on the breaks of the Snake River. We climbed 3000-3800 vertical feet from the river to the top (of our hunts not the top of the mountain), often in less than a mile horizontaly from the river, then in reverse order back down again with a different route into another draw back to the river, for 3 days strait. By the last day we just stayed on the ridges glassing draws. Im a bit tired and sore, but it was all worth it! We saw Elk, Mule Deer, Grouse, Turkeys, and even some Whitetail way down low. The Bears are still up high, but theyll be in these canyons before long. There are no blooms on the Huckle berry bushes yet, but theres more berry bushes this year than Ive ever seen in the canyons. Lush is an understatement!
With the incredibly wet spring we've had this year, most of the snow pack up high has melted. Im betting that late this summer/early fall its gonna be dry as a popcorn fart. The deep cool canyons are gonna be the tickett for bruins.
If I time it right with the ripening of the wild plumbs, and huckle berries this will be a BANNER year for Bears back home.
