    Good Luck.
    The bears are starting to come out.
    It is snowing right now but that should make for some green up in the next 2 weeks. Lots of buds and grass for the bears.

    Well it is 12 degrees today (here) and the tree buds are coming out, grass is starting to grow, dandelions will be coming soon. Perfect bear hunting weather.
    You should have a great time.

    Yep it is a late spring this year. I travel around 350km per day in prime bear country and have only seen 2 sets of Grizzly track and no blackies yet. With the way the snow is melting and water running I am sure they are being flooded out of thier dens as we speak. Coming out 3-4 weeks late should make for some excellent hides with no rubs.

    Good luck on your hunt SK has some great bear hunting.
    The journey is the reward.

    Yep Celsius!, and DH is right on the money.
    There are going to be more bears at the temp bumps to 23 in the next few days.
    Bring your rubber boots if you have room.
    Good luck

    Today it was 22 degrees Monday it is supposed to be 18 in Laronge SK. by Wednesday it could be 22.
    If you have not seen a lot of sun, yes you should have lotion on.
    Maybe you'll be hiding in the trees in a T shirt.
