I haven't hunted bears since I left Montana, 1974! Always saw lot's of them up there but seldom see one in Oregon. Even when I lived on the west side, just never saw them. And Oregon is supposed to be a better bear state than Montana!
I will be up in Idaho 15 May for spring bear and looking forward to it. It will be my first spring bear hunt so it will be a new and exciting hunt I am sure. Good luck on your hunt and hope to see some photos. I hope to post some photos of my hunt the end of May.
I will admit, I love deer plots.
I love planting... even the garden at home.
What I do not like are high cost farm implements.
I found myself in need of a cultipacker for clover and other small seed - but could not find a decent deal on a small unit.
OK, fine... I will make one!
The materials were very simple... some plastic corrugated sewer drain pipe, some metal, 2 bearings and some concrete and you are in business!
I cut the pipe, in this case, to 46" wide - as I intended to pull this one...
