haven't had a spring bear for a few years now. had a fall bear about 3 yrs ago. so kind of excited about getting into the woods this year. now deciding on rifle to be taking along, just getting a new load developed on my 280 Ackley but have since purchased a 28 Nosler, and 338 Edge to play with

What's your load for the 280 AI if you don't mind me asking?

I've hunted the Mt. Emily for bear. How'd you do? Did you go in right behind the snow?
