Nice bear, IdahoCTD. Out of the six, how many are sows?

Re: Shooting Sows

The first bear we shot was a small sow and it looks like the small color phase bear is a sow too. I'm not sure on the big color phase bear. It has a huge butt and is a big bear but has somewhat narrow snout. The head is rather big though. If I had to guess there are 2-3 out of the 6 that are sows. This last time we got a lot of pictures but I didn't have a lot of time to really study them on the way home the night before last. There were too many deer on the road and the laptop was making it hard for my buddy to see. My buddy has the cards since they are his cameras.

Re: Shooting Sows

Elkoholic307 and I are planning to head up tomorrow to check our baits. Hopefully we will have an update on his bait.
I have a bait a few drainages over from his but its only been up a week, maybe ill have some action on mine also...

Re: Shooting Sows

I would'nt have a problem with shooting that sow especially if there weren't any boars about.

A friend of mine just got back from Wyoming where two of the hunters in the group shot very small sows. One of the guys has shot 2 or 3 20" plus bears and I guess I just don't understand why he would shoot a little sow.
