THURSDAY DAY 6, ONLY 1 MORE DAY LEFT: VERY LONG DAY. WHILE GEORGE WENT TO CHECK GATES CREEK JIM AND I WENT TO CHECK RIVER#2, AND DO A MID-DAY SIT UNTIL GEORGE CALLED, AND THEN WE WOULD GO CHECK RIVER#1 TOGETHER. THERE HAD BEEN A LITTLE ACTIVITY AT RIVER#2 SINCE WE HAD SAT THERE WEDNESDAY EVENING. AT 10 TIL 2 IN THE AFTERNOON 2 YOUNG BEARS CAME IN, FROM DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS, BUT ALMOST AT THE SAME TIME. BEST WE CAN FIGURE THEY WERE 2 YEAR OLD TWINS THAT ARE NOW ON THEIR OWN. WAS COOL TO SEE THEM INTERACT. GEORGE CALLED, GATES CREEK HAD BEEN HIT BUT, FROM THE SCAT PILES, GEORGE WAS THINKING MAYBE A SOW WITH CUBS. WE THEN CHECKED RIVER#1 TOGETHER, AND IT HAD ACTIVITY SO WE DECIDED TO COME BACK TO RIVER#1 FOR THE EVENING HUNT. WE SETTLED IN AT 6:30 P.M. AND SAT UNTIL 1:30 A.M.. IN CASE YOU ARE NUMBERS CHALLENGED, THAT WAS 7 HOURS, A PRETTY LONG SIT. BY MIDNIGHT SHOOTING LIGHT IS GETTING BAD, BY 1:30 A.M. IT WAS PRETTY DARN DARK. NOTHING CAME IN.

FRIDAY, DAY 7, LAST DAY: GEORGE CHECKED GATES CREEK AND THE BEAR OR BEARS HAD NOT COME BACK. JIM WENT AND GOT THE CAMERA AT RIVER#2, BUT ONLY THE 2 JUVENILE BEARS THERE. SO, BACK TO RIVER#1 FOR THE LAST HUNT. GOT SET UP BY 7:15 P.M., AND SAT UNTIL 12:30 A.M., NOTHING SHOWED UP. I HEAD BACK HOME LATE SATURDAY (TODAY AS I TYPE THIS).

A GOOD HUNT, NO KILL, BUT NONETHELESS A GOOD HUNT, WITH GOOD FRIENDS, AND NO REGRETS ON PASSING ON "LUCKY" ON DAY 1. I WAS GEORGE'S GUEST, AND HE IS PROBABLY FAR MORE DISAPPOINTED THAN I ABOUT NO KILL.

It happens. As I age, kills become less important.

You didn't score but it wasn't from a lack of preparation or effort. Good hunt. Thanks for sharing with us.

You are a first class hunter Rey, told it like it was & took it as we all should. We all like to tell our successful stories but they don't all work out, you put in the time, busted your butt to make it happen but sometimes it just doesn't come together. I tip my hat to you buddy!!
