Archery season for black bears opens this Friday for most of the state, is anyone going to give it a shot or is there too much snow everywhere still? I haven't got a chance to do any scouting yet but I figure I will go out this weekend and carry the bow around anyway, might be on snowshoes though. Has anyone spotted a bear or at least some tracks? I talked to a G&F biologist a couple weeks ago that had seen some tracks so they have been out for a while now.

I have to wait for payday... :( 20th. But then its on!!! I will be going for a spring black bear with the bow!!
Last year I was so close both in the spring and in fall, but just never got a chance to connect. I hope this year a bit more patience and a quieter stalk will be on my side!!

Gotta get rid of some of the snow first. Is it ever gonna end?

Ohhh, got the combo licence, archery stamp, and bear tag!!!!. Went out to look...how am I supposed to hunt in this wet white crap all over the place? Its like a flock of albino pterodactyls took a crap while flying over the mountains. ehhh.
