Re: Are we all ready for spring bear hunting?

Was out scouting the bait sites a couple weeks ago. I'll be using the .308 with 180gr RN and 12 gauge with slugs while over bait and the 325WSM with 220gr Sierra when I'm spot and stalking the cut lines.

    You guys are killing me. All this bear hunting 'bout to go down and I can't go this year!
    I guess it gives me more time to prepare for next spring.

    Good luck to all those venturing out this spring.
