Well, this will be year 3 for me hunting Bear in the D14 in SOCAL. First year was while deer hunting spot and stock. I never hunted the area before so it was mostly scouting mixed in with watching all the LA hunters wander cluelessly by. Last year I was more serious about it an found plenty of scat, tracks, and a possible food source away from the LA deer hunters, but it's not open enough to spot so I'm planning on trying a predator call this year. I just found someone willing to go with me to watch my back.
I think the years of deer hunting have handicaped me, but I'm feelin' like this will be the year of the Bear!
Maine: where did your friend pickup the bear in montana. I passed up a 6 footer earlier this week I didn't want to pack it 14 miles back to the pick up. We were out mountain goat hunting in the Bob Marshal wilderness. My kid still things I should have pulled the trigger. Maybe next week :smile:
Like most of you I'm certain, I love to shoot my guns. I enjoy shot after shot all day long at the shooting range… whether it is with one of my Shotguns, one of my rifles, or with my handgun… or when the crosshairs are on a big game animal in a safe shooting scenario. I love to shoot! What I don’t have the same excitement about is cleaning my gun afterwards.Now this is not going to be gun cleaning 101 as every kit comes with its own set of directions and the internet also has a great deal...
