What area did you put in

What area did you put in for?  I have seen bear in the spring and fall while hunting turkeys, deer and elk in Utah.  Your problem could be very limited since you can't bait them unless you have a archery tag.

A call might work, I have

A call might work, I have seen bears respond to them but more out of curisoty than anthing else I believe.  I would concentrate on green meadows early in the morning and then again just before dark.  But the problem with bears is that you see them when you see them. 

Credit cards are just starting to get hit for the bear tag charges so if you have access to your account on line you might want to watch it for a charge in the next couple of weeks.

Your credit card can get hit

Your credit card can get hit at anytime between now and when they mail out the actual tag.  It is just one way to watch to see if you drew before you get the actual email telling you weather or not you drew out. 

I have no idea on the legality of using scents, you would have to check the regulations and see if it says anything.

Okay I will keep my fingers crossed but not going to hold my breath over it. By the way I see the grand slam winner on your profile and on a few others. What is that?

It was a contest that the previous owners of the site ran to drum up a lot of traffic just before they sold the site. 

Don't expect any new contest.

Okay. Was on another post you

Okay. Was on another post you had seems like this sight is not doing too well.
That sucks got some good info just reading the forums.Also seems to be pretty dumb for people just to
ask where to go as I've seen on some posts. One thing to ask about terrain or a unit but when they ask where can I shoot a animal that's what everyone what's. Go look.That's why it's called hunting.
