The season started here on April 1 and runs until June 30 so I have plenty of time, at least that's what I'm telling myself now. I haven't had time to get out at all with all the spring projects I want to get done. I'm planning at least one maybe two short weekender backpack trips into some lower elevation watersheds that I think might be right for bear. We'll see how that pans out, besides that a few mornings and evenings on the slopes, pipelines, or powerlines might do the trick. Anyhow good luck to everyone.
