I am very new to this forum and have been hunting in OR for 12 years. Up until the last couple years I have never seen a bear. My problem is I only see them when I am not hunting. Any ideas on a good place to look? I have been going out almost every day and have only been seeing a TON of elk , a few deer , and 4 BIG KITTYS in the last few days. Ideally I would like to find a knowledgable hunting buddy to trade my elk and cat whereabouts for a good bear. I have been hitting the Signal Tree area of the Tioga unit very hard and that is all I have seen.
