I will not forget! I am waiting for a bear that I got to know last year and will be holding out for him, unless something bigger comes along. Sue wants a smaller one and we get plenty of the 6 to 7 footers here in town. I hope she gets one this year.

So, I was checking the Unit 9 regs and saw Sheep listed under 9B. I had no idea there were sheep in Unit 9.

Good luck K!

I spy another one cleaning out the den. Did not see any signs of a cub. The only thing lacking now is a boat with a good motor on it.

There was a nice black bear walking across the Hay Flats this last week along the Parks. Half dozen cars along the rd pulled over watching him.

Not much for a bear to eat yet across the bay here. Lots of snow and no tracks near the beach in good locations. Still sleeping I guess.

Different Sow and Cub was in town 3 nights ago. also had a juvenile get into the dump yesterday. If he is still around the wife is going to try to shoot it. I am still waiting for the one I had dealings with last year. He might go 10 feet, I hope I get to put the stanley to him. The stanley never lies.
