Rey. Thanks so much for taking us along with you on your adventure. I felt like I was there with you. Sorry you did not find your big bear but it sounds like it was an awesome trip. Safe travels home.

Rey, Don`t remember if you were on the site when I went to Idaho for black bear and camped for five days in the Targee National forest. . While walking a trail a very large and very golden black bear appeared alongside me behind large blowdown. By the time I unslung my 475 he disappeared behind that tree. Waited for him to show himself and to this day I have no idea where he went. No bear... but it was better then a week in work... Bottom photo is the [censored] a bear took outside my camp during the night..

Rey, even though you got no bear, I bet the excitement is still there. My last 7 day bear over bait hunt ended with not even a sighting of a bear, but I still had an awesome hunt! I?ve heard many times that hunting bear over bait is not sporting and like taking candy from a baby....oh well.

It appears that he did not hold your status as a hunter in very high regard. You need to go back and educate him.

Aww man. Hate that you didn't get one. That's why we call it hunting, not killing, though.

If it makes Rey and James feel any better, I struck out in both AK and ID. I don't regret the trips, and will hopefully make it back to both spots. Both were very enjoyable hunts.
