    Spring Bear, Anyone Draw?

    I drew 746A which was no suprise. Hope this forecasted storm through the weekend doesn't bring a bunch more snow to the high country.

    Drew Saddle Mt/Scappoose as my second choice. Tryed it a little bit last year and only found sign but no bears. Did get some tips from a couple locals this year so hope to get closer to a bear.

    Got a Sled Springs/Chesnimnus tag with 1 point. Live in the area so have been doing a bit of scouting lately. Snow is going off pretty quickly with the weather and have seen one hog of a boar so far...Can't wait for the 15th!!!!!!!!!

    Amen to that! Seems to be pretty good carry-over on the bulls this year. Of course they're out on the Zumwalt right now so it's easy to see them. Deer have'nt looked good in several years (primarily predation) and now we have wolfs too...!

    I noticed there's not alot of deer there, I am considering deer hunting there once or twice though in the near future, even though I saw as many bears as I did nice bucks. I saw a couple good bucks when I was looking for sheep in '11, it would be a hell of a pack out from where they were, but the ones I saw would be worth it. I wish I wasn't 9 hrs away from that country, I don't get to go there enough. I would take up bear hunting if I were closer.

    I traditionally hunted Chesnim for deer but have given up trying to keep up with the predators and have switched to the desert and done really well. I know there are still some big bucks down over the breaks cause I see them in the rut during elk season but if you go out year round as I do (at least twice a week) and see virtually no fawns with the does you can see the handwriting on the wall.
    We have what we call "boys week" for grouse the first week of September every year and so I've probably met or seen you out there; the sheep hunters are usually doing their do-dilligence at that time. I assume you know that Vic Coggins retired as of December 31. He will be missed in the sheep world...
