Glad everything turned out for you and the other guy. That could have turned really sour really fast.
Did see a pile of bear scat from last fall near my prime site. I’m shocked we didn’t see a single track in the mud or remaining snow in the shadows. We walked a solid 10 miles today down closed down logging roads and bushwhacking it. Still about 2 weeks away from the bear rut so things will pick up for sure. Im in an and set up earlier than last year so I’m still optimistic. I’m the only one in my general area of the mountains with baits out so that’s also a plus.Very nice pics. Good to hear your back out in the woods.
I was hoping some bear sign would be there.
Oh I’ll only haul in one of the big jugs and 2 of the 1 gallon jugs of oil on this trip as I’ve already put out nearly 15 gallons between the last 3 trips. I will have the trash bag of popcorn and the small bag of mixed pastries, breads and such.That's quite the load of bait you have to get to the location.
His dad used to raise coonhounds. He quit **** hunting and started chasing and baying mountain lions. He and another gentleman go out west for a month or 2 and tree lions. They collar their dogs, make notes of their hunt and then play rock, paper scissors to see who has to climb the tree with the poking stick to kick the cougar out. If it’s still a fresh cat they might give it an hour or so head start then run it again. Both men are in their late 70’s.Guy sounds like he has a hunting addiction. That’s good people to be around.
