Been trying for about two years now to hunt bears, brown bears mostly. No luck, i dont know what im doing wrong and i know ive been close to them before but no luck in actually getting one. Im in Afghanistan right now and will be taking leave july 15 thru the 28th. I dont want to waste my wifes time with me by aimlessly walking around the woods with my .338 and coming home empty handed... i want to feel the thrill of getting my first brown, blackie, ram, or even a coyote, will you help us out?!?! I will be out of the Army next year and back to California, the hunting blows there compared to Alaska(duh) and I know i will be visting this fine state very often for hunting and fishing!
