Less than 3 months Till spring black bear! I cant wait! And I'm nearly positive I'm getting a new set of either silver flame's or Alaska bow hunting supplies Samurai broad heads. Really anxious to field test these new broad heads.

Well...here in Montana we've got turkey and bear season coming up in just over a month... Dang... I am READY for that. I've killed a boat load of bears with a rifle, but have yet to kill one with a bow and sure hope to get that done this spring. If not, Oh Well..it will be FUN trying...
Here are a few I've come across at work the last couple years. I'm a fish biologist, so I end up seeing a lot of critters, but quite often while Im NOT hunting!

I always wanted to get back up to this spot and try to arrow this bear... he is a PIG...

And a Momma bear...she was standing at the base of the tree her cubs were up and was not impressed with me!

One of the cubs...above her...

one more mamma with kiddos...

As for Turkeys... Only one with a rifle so far (deer season bird...just an "incidental take"...)..and also want to get that done with the longbow... I've got them in every direction from the house... just got to figure out how to get it done.. Any tips appreciated!!
No good turkey pics though...

police killed a black bear north of us this past week , they've had sightings of black bears in the woods around
duke university hospital , where mrs bubba works . i counted six seperate sightings in the past ten days... local law enforcement says they have lost habitat in the mountains due to developements going in. here in my neck of the woods, ive seen tracks out on the trail, by the creek, a sow and her cub . ive also seen pie pan size cat traks near a deer stand
of mine beneath a willow oak tree. not to mention coyotes running across the field near my hideout. looks to me like the big game animals are coming down to the foothills to hunt and feed... the mountain is lush and green,,, lots of wasklys
and squirrats jumping around but the oaks here didnt get a good crop of acorns ... later folks and good hunting them bears ...and great pictures sapphire...;^)

I was luck enough to draw a spring Bear Permit here in Washington State.
The area I will be hunting is in Southwest Washington and has no snow (elevation 0-1500 feet)
It has a lot of creek bottoms, and a few beaver ponds....
I am not allowed to use scents or baits, and plan on trying some calling, but with as thick as the woods are, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to locate "travel corridors" or other tips on figuring out the best places to intercept a bear.
I have read everything I can on the subject and think I got a grasp, but realize that there is always something to learn.
