Anybody seeing any bears out and about this spring yet? I know its a little early but I'm putting the boots on the ground this weekend and can't wait to be out in the mountains again!
Uh, only 3 units (San Juan, La Sals, and the Book Cliffs) have a restricted bear pursuit season where a tag has to be drawn, and they are only for the summer pursuit season (July and August when there isn't a kill season going on). The whole state is open for pursuit during the spring season with no special tag required.Any body interested in running some dogs on a spring bear that didn't draw a pursuit tag?
That's only true for the early part of the fall hunt (Aug 20-Sept 26) when there are other big game hunts going on at the same time. The rest of the time a hound dogger does not need to have a kill permit holder present to chase bear with his dogs.I was under the impression to run dogs they either needed a tag or with someone that had one of the other style tags.
