2019 spring bear--Anyone else in the drawing?

The deadline for Oregon spring bear was yesterday. Anybody else now waiting for results? My dad, my uncle, and I are in for a Northeast hunt, and if I draw, I'll plan to take my 10-year-old in the Mentored Youth program. Spring bear is the most "social" of the hunts I look forward to every year, and this could be another fun trip.

I'm doing POW this spring. I'd like to try and do a spring bear trip about every other year. This will be my 4th trip and hopefully my first successful outing.

Good luck in Oregon!

Building pts for blue mtns, it'll take me another couple years. If you are in good physical condition, spring bear in NE is the 2nd easiest hunt in Oregon (pronghorn #1). Have fun and watch for ticks!

This will permanently dispel any rumor that I might be a trophy hunter, but my son got his first bear this week. We spotted it from about 200 yards, but when it disappeared behind the hill, we sneaked in, and he shot it from 40 yards. Not sure which was better, the way he followed instructions to stalk and then put the bullet squarely through the heart, or the fact that Grandpa and great uncle watched it from across the canyon.
