Default Montana Spring Bear Hunt

All this work the last few months has made me itchy for an adventure. Heading to Montana to hunt bears with a couple buddies until next Friday. Flying into Bozeman in the morning and starting the hunt tomorrow afternoon. Since itís a short hunt Iím only taking my rifle this round. Itís supposed to be cold and wet, so the suck factor could be high. Any time in the mountains is a good time in my mind.

We hiked and glassed about 6 miles of country yesterday and didnít turn up anything but a giant wolf track where there isnít supposed to be any wolves. This morning we are in a completely different range glassing. Been wet and cold the whole trip, this morning is just chilly and clear. All it takes is one
