We finally got one bait site set up and I'm going up Sunday to set up another. There just might be a dead bear by this weekend off the first site.

Re: Are we all ready for spring bear hunting?

Five days of hard hunting and no bears on the Salmon. My feet are hamburger so it almost qualified as a bait hunt.

These bears have been out of the den for a while and were no longer on the grassy slopes and temps were in the 90's for the first three days.

Elk had moved out of the area too. You ID boys need to get busy killing some wolves. Those mountains were littered with wolf sign and wish I would have been able to help while there.

Regardless I had a great time and put in some miles glassing a lot of great country. I think it's time to get on bait.

Good luck to all.

We were finally able to get up to the spot where we bait today. We'll probably head back up to check it Wed. As stinky as some of the stuff was that we put up there we should have bears by Wed.

Re: Are we all ready for spring bear hunting?

My buddy got pictures of a blonde and a black bear in there last summer after bear season. So I know at least those two should still be in there. Some other guys hunted in there last year and took a big cinnamon and a chocolate. So color phase bears are pretty prevalent. I'll try to get some pictures if we get one or more in the next week or two. Our set up is pretty easy because we can use our folding shooting benches to shoot from. I had to tailor it to my buddy that got hurt real bad last year and lost about 70% of the use of his left leg. I just get to be the pack mule for bears and bait.
