I was planning on going out in the south west corner of Alberta alongside the mountains middle of May for a few days. Then up to the far north of the province 1st or 2nd week of June. I can take two bears, but I only want to get one this spring. I've been seeing big bears when I'm out for elk, and want to keep a tag for that.

We got a sow last weekend here in n. Idaho. She was on the small side about 140lbs. Our bears here arent that big on average. 200lbs is a really good black bear. It was my friends first bear. Shot across a drainage at 918 yrds with my .300 rum 210 GR VLD. The pack out was brutal. Kept sinking through the sno up to our waist in some shady spots. Fun to see him get his first bear (also the longest shot he had ever taken). Oh yeah , she wont get any elk calves this spring either!

Nice shot. 918yds is a long shot. How was the performance of the bullet? I'm sure it punched through without a hitch. There isn't much resistance in a small bear.

I'm just workin' on my truck and quad, gettin' them ready for the trip up north. The guns are ready, they have been for awhile.

Anybody else seeing any bears out and about?


Skiking, is there a grizzly season in MT?

No grizz season in MT. There used to be but the greenies got them put on the endangered list. Now their off the list and I'm wondering why they haven't opened a season on them. There are plenty of them out there. I think their agenda is to them back through out the entire Rocky Mnt Range from Yellowstone to Glacier. They are close to that now.
