It looks like long range paradise!
What does it cost to hunt there as a non resident ? and is it a draw hunt or over the counter ?
Why do you think I hunt with a Model-70 feather wt. in 270wsm? Hits hard, shoots flat, light weight.

Most folks wouldnt attempt hunting country like that for a bear, but those of us who do get bears quite frequently. Lots of color phase bears too. Blonde, Cinnimon, Red, Chocolate, and Black. Mostly Black or Red, but we've shot the others too exept all-Blonde. Those are harder to find.
If your up to the country it will pay off, but, youd better be in shape, or it will getcha. August can bring Temps in the hundred and teens. Heat stroke is common for folks not accustom to it.
I grew up in the High Desert, and it almost got me 3 or 4 years ago. Ran out of water and got rimrocked, 114 deg by 10:30 AM. 3 hrs later I made it to the bottom. I stripped elder berreis for moisture. Worst part was I could see the Snake River the whole time
. 2 days in camp and I had my appetite back, and was huntin again. But that was a long 2 days for sure! Awesome country, but it has fangs.
