    NV bear opens next week!

    Bear opens Sept. 15th, my buddy has a tag and I have the hounds. I've got my spots that I've seen tons of sign and I'm really excited. Anybody else running bears this year? After bear is tagged its a trip to Jarbidge for cow elk and mulie buck for my buddy then its all winter after lions and bobcats. Just wondering how many of you enjoy seeing the dogs work and hearing the bawl of hounds on a track.

    Yep. I have a buddy with a bear tag too. Another good friend with house will be running the bruins. I hope I can go it will be my first bear hunt with dogs. Can't wait for the experience.
    I don't Break the rules, I Modify them.

    Its pretty intense, people don't realize how hard it is. You HAVE to go where the bear and dogs go no matter what. Lions is the real reason I got into hounds, they are tricky and smart. Bears are tough and can run marathons but its seems like you can put more up than you can lions. Its a lifestyle and I love every minute of it, then again hunting period is a lifestyle and I love it.

    My dad used to have a guide service running bear. Man that was the good days. Nothing is like a good chase. It is alot of hard work to be successful but some of the most rewarding hunting. I wanted to get back into it one day but the latest California legislature changed my mind.

    You boys have fun and cherish the opportunity.

    Big goose egg today, cold trailed a couple tracks but pulled dogs off cause of the nasty terrain we where heading into. Found tons of sign but all a couple days old. GPS said 7.8 miles from our drop off to the bottom, thick rosehips and quakies broken up by rock and sage with no trail from top to bottom. Lots of bear, deer, cat and fox sign and no human sign. We will be heading back soon, gonna check some other spots in between. I will post all the action as soon as it happens, this cool down next week should help out some, pretty damn hot and dry.

    Heading out tomorrow. Buddy with the tag has some prior engagements for this weekend so Thursday is it until next week. Feeling good about tomorrow, 2 houndsmen and 1 hunter. Have about 6 good dogs and a few younger dogs between the 2 of us. Hoping getting out during the week helps out but we will see.
