    Hmmm.... I'm going to start packing extra bells, pieces of shoe laces, empty bear spray canisters and tuck them into bear pooh while walking into salmon holes. Maybe even a collection of broken rod pieces.

    Re: Spring Black Bear Tips

    I went out for a drive/look yesterday - didn't see any bear sign but I also got sidetracked and really enjoyed the afternoon cruising some of my favorite locations. Still too much snow where I went into. Lakes were all frozen over still. Couldn't get to one lake because bozo had the parked in the middle of the road and left it there.

    I could have stayed closer to the LML but I figured it would be too busy on the FSR close to home.

    I was hoping to see track and scat but not yet. I figured I get out at least once before they do something drastic and shut down the Spring season.

    Funny to me was to find Mule Deer right where I left them in November - I thought that was pretty cool.

    Lots of fresh new calves on the ground so I spent some time with my "new to me" spotting scope checking around the bushes at the back of the big cattle fences. Fresh calves can draw in the bears.

    Rookie Hunter living in Vancouver. Hoping to get my first bear this year using a rifle, looking for suggestions on where to go? If you were me, packed up your vehicle and to start driving X number of hours from my starting point what direction would you go? Any spots that would have the right balance between huntability for a novice and chance of getting a bear. All comments and suggestions welcome.

    Hey Bobby
    There’s Bears all over the place. Just put some miles on and look for food and bear sign and you’ll most likely find one or two.
