    Spring Bear Hunting

    Any of you hunt-addicts out there ever hunted bear in unit 32 & 32a in Idaho? My son and I drew tags in that area for this spring. The hunt actually opened yesterday but after driving around that area last weekend, there looks to be way too much snow still. We live in eastern Idaho so we would like a good idea of where exactly to go and maybe when to go before making the arrangements to head over there. I'm thinking of heading up near Ola and then up to Sage Hen Reservoir but...
    Appreciate any tips, fellas.

    I have never hunted there, but I must say you guys are lucky suckers! I have been applying there for 7 years and still can't pull the tag. I hope you post some pics after you fill your tags

    Predator- I live in Emmett and know 32 & 32A like the back of my hand as I have hunted it for 30 years. bowhunt247@hotmail.com is my e-mail if you need to chat. I have a couple ranches in Ola that we see a few good bears on every year when Turkey hunting. I will be out this weekend with a few kids Turkey hunting and will keep my eyes open for you. Just an FYI I have drawn that tag 3 times over the years and had great success. Congrats on drawing. If the things I learned this week end up passing I see the drawing odds in those units jumping thru the roof. There is some dandy bears in this area too.

    I seen that turkey pic on the other thread. That is awesome! I've never even seen a 3-bearded tom and for your niece to bag one...impressive. Tell her congrats.
    I read your email. Thank you. I programmed your number in my phone incase I need to text you when I'm up bear hunting. Hopefully I'm texting you to tell you we bagged a big boar. We'll see...

    I hunt directly East of 32, in unit 33 just above Banks. last year we could see accross the highway into both units, and spotted alot of good bears, We tried to access our spot on april 6th and there is still to much snow. If you can get up to High Valley and drop over the East side I think you may have some luck. Check the "access yes" program for property in that area as well. I think there may be some on the list...

    Thanks for the tip hootchiemama. We'll be up there next weekend and hopefully we can get up in some of those places. The forecast says its supposed to rain or snow all week. I will let you know if we see anything in your area across the highway. Good luck!

    IdahoPredator I drew the same tag and luckily have a little shorter drive to check out the areas than you do. I have been out a few times and most of the areas I am wanting to check still have a lot of snow. I drew a turkey tag too so next week will be splitting time between bear and turkey.

    Good luck on your hunt!
