    looks like you had a good hunt but why in the world would you trade unit 18 for 44?....:>)

    Really was just a spur of the moment thing. We allways put in for the buck tag in 18 and have never listed a second choice, we have heard alot about 44 so this year we put it as a second choice and we drew the dam thing.
    But it was good we have seen alot of new counrty ect. Saw ALOT of elk More in one area (approx 5 sq miles) than I have in years, We saw them everyday.
    rest assures Im going back to riggins this friday to check the bait site my son put guess we will see how well I taught him.

    I don’t know about 18 this year but here in unit 13 there are a lot of bear. At least once a week there is one in the yard. Just awhile back a big cinnamon boar was right in front of the barn. The dogs took him out of here. Lots of fun seeing them! I have never shot or ate bear. One elk keeps me in meat for a year so no need to hunt bear.

    Bear breakfast sausage is some of the best stuff I have ever had.
    The first bear gets turn into that, If we get a second we do some steaks and roast.
    If you need someone to come up and take care of those bears for you well be right up.
    Ill be pasing through on the 7th to go see the daughter in Moscow
