Did you get to par take in the hunts? How did you do? Throw up some pictures so the rest of us can see
No, I was guiding brown bear hunts down on the Gulf of Alaska last fall until after moose season and looks like I'll be down there again this fall. The bear snaring has to much paper work I didn't even try for it.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
