Really like your videos but we never got to see the Antelope you took with your bow and does Fire Engineering not let you show the shot?Continue

Nothing yesterday, heading out again now.  A friend told me the appearance of dandelions is a good sign, the bears hit them like candy, but it has been to cold, they are not up yet, going back to the same area for a few days.

Don't forget to wear your FireLife camouflage hat. Product placement!

Bear season in MT has been open for over a week, but the weather has been bad, got more snow last week, and might get a little more this week.  I would wait until a little later in the season, last three weeks of May, but my son is graduating from college, so I will be in NY end of May.  That means, my bear season starts today!  Wish me luck, bear is spot and stalk only in MT, no baiting.  Even though I am bow hunting, you have to wear blaze orange because it overlaps gun season, no separate archery season for bear.  There is still a lot of snow, fish&game said the bears are not moving too much yet this year, but a few were taken, so I will see what I can find. Wish me luck.

Hey Buster, thats great.  Can you put up a picture of your son's bird?  the spot I want to go for the bear is still snowed in, I tied snow shoeing, but it was still too much, will have to wait a week or two.  I am looking for a turkey spot near me.

Kevin, Good luck on your bear hunt. My son bagged a turkey last weekend on the youth hunt. I'm going this weekend and hope to bag a turkey bigger one than his. A little father & son competition.

FDIC is over, now time to get back to hunting.  Is anyone else going for spring bear?  There is no baiting allowed in MT, so I don't know how productive I will be, but I am skipping Canada this season to concentrate on spot and stalk here.  I hope to hit it hard, I will keep you all posted on progress, season starts in about two weeks, still a lot of snow on the mountain range I am going to focus on.
