I hunted Friday 6/30/17, the last day of spring bear in the unit I have a tag for. I didn't see anything! I did however, get another camera hung for elk, spent 3 hours sawing and clearing trail for the dirt bike allowing me access to the backcountry. I also cut a huge load of firewood, poured concrete for the floor of my DIY meat locker at my cabin. So it was productive! I am bummed I didn't get two bears this spring, I usually do. There's always fall bear hunting though. Great week of scouting and working hard now, so that when fall rolls around I'll be ready! Monday 6/26/2017 1.
