Thanks guys i am going back with the same guide this year i have three spots filled up in my group but if their are some hunters interested in joining a bear hunt and having their hunt filmed let me know it is not exspensive!!
Here is a picture of my 2005 bear. I used my husbands 300 WSM. He didn't even take a full step after I shot him. when I got to the bear, he had crumpled himself into a small ditch, and looked like a cub. The first think I thought was how disappointed my husband was going to be that I shot a small bear. ONce we got him out of the ditch, and dragged him onto the rock, he turned out to be alot bigger. No monster of coarse, but probably over 250 pounds. He had such a beautiful face, that i just couldn't let him walk away. Can't wait to get out there again.
Thank you very much. I have been looking for a few forums that had some women on as well, and I came across this place. I plan on lurking around here for a while. Sounds like a good place to swap stories and get some good hunting tips and ideas.
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue. Without knowing this you cannot make reliable assumptions about where the game will be come opening day. Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
There are a couple ways...
