Tommy Bear Hunt
Yeah I was going to say don't go too far down because you got to lug that thing back up again. Oh yeah. That's always a concern with that country. It drops to the Snake River. Yeah really look down there and see how far away it is. Has to be worth going after. Otherwise you spend all day and all night trying to pack that back up the hill.
I don't know whether you've been listening to sportsmen spotlight of late but a very good friend of mine went black bear hunting, spring bear. He took in a thousand pounds of bait which he scavenged around from various and sundry restaurants that were throwing out old stale bread. My guess is that Oregon does not allow baiting is that correct.
You're correct in Idaho they do and same scenario I talked to a buddy the other day to ask how his hunt went and he was doing the same thing baiting. But up here, It's purely spot and stalk. We don't have the option to bait.
