Bear Hunting in Idaho! I have 3 bear baits, all are being hit, one shooter out of probably 15 bears. I got rained out for 2 days so I had two sits over bait, my shooter came in but didn't eat, and I didn't get a shot. I did some spot and stalk as well during the day and found a good bear. I dropped a canyon, crossed a roaring creek and made it to the other side in great time with a solid wind. When I got to 74 yards of the feeding bear, two small cubs popped out and I knew it was a sow. This happens more than I'd like to admit. I glassed this bear for easily 30 minutes on the other side and didn't see her cubs, in fact she looked like a solo boar to me. Even after killing close to 20 bear I still find it hard to tell a sow from a boar that far away. It was awesome exercise, fun to stalk and one of the more nasty canyons a guy could navigate. I hope to make it out next week if I can get all my adulting done!

I only sit my stand the last 2 hours of light - rest of the day is spot and stalk.
Small 4 pt probably just dropped - walked up on it while making a stalk.
