    Default Memorial Day to late....?

    I'll be heading up to Resurrection trail this spring on a blackbear hunt and hope to harvest my first big game animal.
    My question is;
    Is Memorial day weekend. (last week of May) too late to expect to see bears?
    Thanks for any/all help you can gimme' this will be TOTALLY new area to me as I normally bow hunt caribou.


    Thanks again,


    ~Jon

    I bait down here on the kenai and that weekend is usally when activity really starts picking up for me. You may be dealing with a lot of folks on the trail that weekend being a holiday and all. Most of the camp grounds etc fill up down here that wekend so I would assume the trail will be busy also. but other than that you should see something.

    Default the farther you go

    up that trail, the better it will be. if you go from the hope side, it is quite a ways before you have decent glassing. not sure about the other end.

    Thanks guys!
    Looks like I'll be scheduling it for that weekend then.
    We were looking at going back 5+ miles I'm hoping that'll be enough?

    Default Devils Pass

    Try going in to Ressurection via Devil's Pass. Make sure to glass around the parking lot at the beginning of Devil's Pass also. You will get into good glassing after only a mile or so.

    Default same question

    I am looking at the same time frame for POW or possible KUIU hunt. Is June 1st too late for these areas?
