If I see one I might shoot it, still eating on the one from last year......
It's usually the last thing that comes out of the freezer, if there's elk or deer it's going to get eaten 1st. Still have elk so unless it's a dandy w/a real nice hide and a big head I'll probably pass.
Believe me buddy I wish I was. Hard to hunt bears in Idaho without bait or dogs. I miss that part of western Oregon. Bears bears bears
I have some 220 interlocks loaded up for my 308 i have ready for a bear ... But i dont get to go ill the 15th... Never shot one befor is there anything,i should know about cleaning one and keeping thr hide?
They stink. Bring shears or side-cutters to clip the claws to keep them attached to the hide. Depends how deep in the woods you are, but I've always just laid the hide fur-side down, folded in the legs, and rolled it up like a tent or sleeping bag. Take it to a taxidermy guy ASAP.
