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.
