I live in the Anchorage area and am currently planning to do a Kodiak bear hunt this coming spring (actually on Afognak). I am curious with all this awkwardly warm weather what the effects will be on the spring bear hunts. What do you guys think? Think they will come out of the den early and start rubbing earlier? I'm debating whether or not I should stick with my original plan of hunting 1-15MAY or if I should move up the dates to an earlier time - I am trying to get a bear with no rubs so I can rug it out..
Thanks for the info,
