thanks fellas, there have been a lot of bears around this season. There has been lots of local sightings and videos taken in and around town. A friend of mine had 4 killed up on his property in just a few days. I'm an occasional deer hunter, but I don't really like the idea of bear hunting because it could leave cubs without their mother, but the population does appear to be healthy. I'm glad I got to go the other day, because it rained buckets yesterday and probably will continue through this weekend. Monday might be my last trip as I'm going out of town tuesday..
It's been a fun and rewarding season though. Hope you guys had a great season as well!
