Five days and counting

Halleluiah it is almost time to leave for my spring bear hunt! It has been almost 18 months since I booked this hunt and I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel and this time I know it's not a train. My wife and I will be leaving Sunday morning and the hunt starts Tuesday the 15th and runs until the 21st. I spoke with the outfitter last night and they have been seeing several good bears and two really good bears. We will be the first hunters of the year in this area and I will be the only hunter in camp. My wife is going just to be part of the hunt and also to be the camera girl. I have two tags so we will see how it goes and hope to have a success story with some photos when I return. :\\\\:D/

They offer two bear tags?

They offer two bear tags? You'll be busy to get it done in 6 days. What state is that?

Good luck with your hunt.

Good luck with your hunt. I've considered Idaho myself but haven't found a outfitter I was sure of. Can't wait to get your report when you get back.

Thanks to all for the well

Thanks to all for the well wishes and for sure I will give a full report and photos once we get back.

 

Still hunter, we are hunting in central Idaho in the Frank Church Wilderness Area. Due to the predation of elk calves by bears, they offer two bear tags, two lions and two wolf tags at a discounted price to get folks up there to take them out. I would have bought the wolf tags but the season is closed in the zone we are hunting.

What a deal. If I could afford it i'd be up there too. Good luck with the hunt.
