    Its the biggest I've seen, went 600# and 20 10/16". Spent most of 5 weeks trying to get him, going in the NV book and B&C.

    I wrote up the whole season while we were hunting, its in the NV thread. It is a blast for sure, gets the dogs tuned up really well for cat season (if we had some decent winter weather someday). I'm really hoping California will get the recent bill passed to allow hound hunting in certain county's. OTC used to be really nice and I could be there in 15 minutes from my front door.

ID:	8969 My best and no.1 advice for bears is hunt where the food is. If a guy can figure out the food source for the time of year he's hunting, then be patient and watch, you'll get a bear almost every time. My experience is mostly in OR, but I'm sure the same applies everywhereClick image for larger version.

    Early spring hunt I watch green grassy spots, rocky hillsides for grubbing and the swampy spots with fresh grass and skunk cabbage. Calls( fawn bleats or jack rabbit squeals) have been affective late in the spring hunts when I see good sign or if I see a bear and he slips away before I get there. Otherwise in the fall it's food sources, starting with huckleberries up high clear down through the clear cuts, elderberries, mountain ash, acorns and fruit trees. If you find where a bear is working, be there every chance you can.He'll move on to the next food source quickly sometimes so be patient and persistent when the signs hot.
