When do you think we'll start seeing CC hits for bear? Supposed to hear from the DWR by the 12th. I'm getting antsy, I'm in with 9 points.

I think their date is the 11th?

I don't have but 2 measly points so I'm not very optimistic.

Well i applied for san juan, la sal, and book cliffs. Thought i would wait to ask until after i drew. Appreciate the advice from long time members of this forum. I belong to a similar forum for washington state. More than happy to help others when i have the chance.

Reading all i can on this forum. And the draw odds. Etc. looks like only one non res tag for aug hunt.

On the BC roadless you better have access to horses or mules unless you plan on doing a lot of hiking. Been there done that.

That country is just like the rest of the Book Cliffs and should hold a lot of bears. I came across a muddy track just north of the roadless one year when I was hunting deer and if I didn't know better I would swear that it was a grizzly at the size of it. And that bear was less than 5 minutes ahead of us.

Yeah, I wish I knew something about bear hunting there I could tell you. My dad's cousin hunted the book cliffs (but not the roadless area) for years back when it was a general deer unit, and he saw a fair number of bears there (one even found its way into camp :shock: ). The book cliffs are a relatively remote place with a lot of good habitat, and I don't doubt that there will be a good bear population there. It should be a fun trip. Congrats on the draw.

Got lucky and drew the any legal weapon fall tag for Currant Creek with only 6 points. Took 9 last year to draw. I can bait, spot and stock, or use dogs.

I have never hunted bear before so this will be a learning experience.

My brother drew the Bookcliffs Archery Fall Tag with 5 points. No dice for my son and I. My brother may be the luckiest guy in the world when it comes to tags. He draws something good every year.
