Good luck on it.  I'm sure

Good luck on it.  I'm sure that you will have no problems finding one it is just finding the right one. 

I'm down to 41 days before I leave for British Colombia for my hunt.  So far I think that I have all my gear and am scratching off the things on my to do list, but I need to do a little bit more load development and then reload the rounds that I am going to take.

Best wishes

I leave a week from today for Idaho and will try to bag a turkey this weekend here between getting ready. I bought a wolf tag on the outside chance I were to see one or be able to get a shot at one.

Have a great hunt!

I would get a wolf tag in a heart beat but the season is closed when we head up in our zone. As posted on the other site, I am in a two tag area and could not pass up the second tag since it was so cheap. Looking forward to seeing photos and hearing the stories. Good luck and have a safe trip.

just got back today from the

just got back today from the bear (bare) hunt.  i did not see one bear in 5 days.  i saw a few tracks but no bears.  i saw no wolves either, just one track. i had mule deer coming to the bait in the day, but the bears apparently came in after midnight.  they were eating the baits up, just did not oblige me.  i think i will try alberta next time.
