Good luck. Seems like lots of bears and they are active, at least in eastern me. I went on a youth day hunt with my daughter. We did not see a bear, but the party on either side of our bait, mile on each direction both shot at, but did not recover bears. One group had like 3 or 4 moving around. Berries look to have gone by and the guide who had like 20k acres leased said they were having good action, even morning bears.
Had a great time with Shane an everyone. 6 bear got shot while we were there all though I did seal the deal on one I had an awesome time Shane an Rachel are great people an we are looking forward to out trip next November up there for deer.
