    Deer Lodge. The bear we saw was near our camp. We base in Section 291 above Phosphate. In the past few years, I have seen numerous black bears in Section 215 E of Deer Lodge as well. Only part about that section, is watch for wolves and Grizzlies. There are plenty of both.

    I have never spent any time in the deer lodge area. I have really wanted to though. I think for bears atleast Ill be hunting close to Bozeman with the ridiculous gas prices. Plannin on hitting the hills friday after work and do a 3 day camp. Good luck everyone.

    Was out and about today, lots of snow still to say the least. Only a few crows stirring about in where I went. The winter elk havent even moved back into the area.
    Might go back out Friday to take a peek in a few spots and see whats going on, but with all the snow up here, makes it hard to get in anywhere and look without a snowmachine or hours in on snow shoes.

    Yeah we did a drive last night along the bridgers and saw some deer and gophers that's about it. The west side of the bridgers are opening up but still lots of snow in the bowls and basins. This weekend will be taking the gun for a walk I know that but if I learn some new country all is well.

    MtWillie,
    You are talking about my favorite bear hunting areas. Do the bears still come down and eat the apples in Phosphate? Haven't been back there hunting for 15-20 years though. We never had the wolves and Griz were pretty scarce.

    Here we go guys. The pack is loaded down and I am ready to hit the hills after work tonight for the weekend. Its gonna be a scouting trip I think but it will be worth it to be in the hills.

    The pack weight was actually pretty good. I could have got another 2-3 days out of my Eberlestock Dragonfly. With everything including my rifle, pack weight was 32 pounds. It's nice when I work for a company that sells lightweight gear. Heres a couple of photos from this weekend. No bears spotted but saw some cool new country and some mule deer. Roommate same a griz sow and cub so there out, be careful.

    Looks as if you beat the snow storm. I went out Sunday for the day South of Bozeman. Walked two open ridges, with only deer and elk sign.

    This snow needs to stop. It's getting old really fast.
