No Grizzl hunting here in Alberta either. I believe for the same reasons you said. There is plenty of them though. They are getting braver all the time and they're expanding their territory down into the farmland already.

If there's ever a season opened up again, I'll be sure to have my name in the draw.

Yeah, no grizz season. I am having a hard time finding blacks, but the grizzlies aren't hiding from me.

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?

Re: Who's going black bear hunting this spring

Anybody been getting out for bear lately? I snuck away for a week. Saw 12 bears. I've always wanted to try bear meat, so I shot a small bear (150lbs) on the first day. In the area I was hunting in a guy can get two tags, so I bought another tag and continued hunting. I searched high and low for a big old boar, but I just couldn't find the one that I wanted. I almost shot the last bear I saw on the last day as it looked like a good one. Round belly that hung down, small looking ears. But, I crept up to under 100 yds to get a better look and it just didn't strike me as the one I wanted. It just didn't seem to have the size. Maybe I should've shot it as I was heading home soon, but a guy will never get the big one if he shoots the small one first.

A friend that came out with me shot his first bear. He was really excited. It was a smaller bear that went 5 feet nose to tail. I hunted a set of HUGE tracks for a few days, but no sign of the bear that made them.

I am done bear hunting now for the spring, unless I get shipped up north for work, then I can go out every night 'til July 15th.

Anybody got any good stories to tell about their bear hunt?
