Bear number 6

Driving about 50 along a county road and saw him out of the corner of my eye, standing up on his rear legs, presumably listening to my approach.  6th bear I've seen this year, and I almost missed him.

Mark,

That is way cool ! Especially seeing him at that speed ! I seen 5 bears Memorial Weekend (1 in 61 and 4 in 62). I just hope they will be that easy to find come September.

That's a cool picture. I have spent my whole life outdoors camping, hunting, fishing, etc and have yet to see a bear or mountain lion. The thing that freaks me out is thinking how many have seen me without me knowing it!

Very coo, I actually haven't seen one in a couple years now and never while out hunting. 

But I recieved my September tag in the mail today for 444 and attached units so I guess I better get out and start looking around some. I'm usually fishing other places and just don't get out looking that time of year. 

Gives me something extra to do!

Check the dranage between the Red Table road and Basalt Mountain on the Red Table side. Every bow hunter that I talked to last year that was hunting off of the Red Table road saw multipul bears during the archery season, and that was quite a few hunters.

My problem is that when I do have a tag I will never see a bear, but if I don't have a tag they are all over the place.

Thank you,That's the area I was planning to head to first.lol

Partly because I know it a bit and it's fairly close to home. Upper cattle creek on the Basalt mountain side is where I've seen the most in the past when out fishing brookies in the creek. I'm talking one every couple years though.

Basalt Mountain itself as well.
