    We had a pretty frustrating 2 days. Seems like everytime it felt we were getting close we came to a washout or a 3' feet bank of snow in our way. We put some miles on the boots glassing spots that really looked good without seeing a bear yet.

    We were supposed to go to Mackay tomorrow for a turkey hunt but my buddies there are getting pounded by the weather and have only seen 2 toms so far.

    Its always great to be in the field in the spring but I am dissapointed with the lack of bears and sign I have seen thus far.

    I went out yesterday myself. Not much to see. A few deer tracks, an abandoned camp,(not sure why it was not occupied on a wet rainy friday..but).. A few boot prints and a few more I left next to the ones I saw.
    I noticed its been a bit cold to get the grasses growing yet, and the wetlands are still pretty wintered.

    Might have to give it a rest for a few weeks and hit it up in May.
    I hunt because......

    We just got home after a couple days up there and we didn't have any luck either. Spent most of our time trying to walk through or around snow drifts. Friday afternoon we sat in the pickup up on the mountain glassing in a steady rain. A little demoralizing, but we'll give it some time and then go hit again.

    I haven't even been out yet I have a good view out my living room window of the mountains and have a little tell tail snow drift that I keep an eye on. When it's gone I can usually make it in to where I want to go.

    Don't give up guys and don't be afraid to try down lower. We did see a small bear just wandering thru the sage just out of Sweet on Friday afternoon. He was a little one, but was out and about at 2:30pm when the sun was poking thru for a bit. Try that area off the Little Weiser that I told you guys about in the e-mails. I had a friend up there Turkey hunting on Private ground and said he saw 2 bears I believe in King Hill Cr.

    Scott- Darn I was right up there for most of Friday and Saturday. King Hill is right there on the little Weiser right? We glassed up and down those canyons from the end of the private all the way up to the snowline. Glassed plenty of deer and elk but no bears.

    I am sure it is just a matter of time. I've got to get caught up on work and then I am planning spending another week or so the first of May.

    Well I hit it this weekend. I have glassed more flipping elk and deer than I believed existed but no bears. I am going to spend a couple of.afternoons this week just getting in a few hours and trying to get on something. Then all weekend. If i am not onto something by then I am going to be very worried.
