    Default looking to borrow a sled for the weekend for bear hunt

    While out on a long road trip my wife and I glassed 8 blackies and and we are looking to borrow a sled for the weekend (saturday mainly) we will be glad to pay a service fee plus share the wealth so to speak. If you have 2 or more and want to tag along I would be glad to have you as a accomplice in the bear adventure. I will not disclose of the location on here but they are accessible. I would like to head out around 5am on saturday to get to where we would hunt by 12-1pm. I can supply the truck and gas if you want to go in and let me borrow a sled and of course share the meat. shoot me a text 253-561-1171

    yah we are heading out bright and early I was going to head out today to prescout areas I spotted some nice bruins in on monday but due to the wife coming down with the bug and my spotting partner having issues getting to town we are just holding off until tomorrow. Should be a day either way tomorrow. we are going to be shoeing and I am heading out to pick up a ATV if all else fails and snow levels dropped enough out there. we will see how things go.

    Little to no snowfall or significant snowfall......... or a hurricane or tornado, maybe an earthquake or volcano eruption. It could be as cold as -20 but as warm as 80 so be prepared.... LOL.

    That weather forecast just goes to show you no matter how much we think we know about nature it has not all been figured out.

    Let us know how the hunt goes. Im ready to get out myself. A friend of mine is convinced there is no bears out this early. I would like to prove him wrong with one I drop!

    Heading out in a few minutes. It looks like mother nature wants to dump some snow on us but either way we are rolling out. I will have a full report later tonight

    Looking forward to it. This snow doesnt want to seem to give up so you're gonna have your work cut out for you. I was planning on taking a peek on monday but I think it can wait for this recent round of snow to melt since I have not seen squat to even attempt to give chase to.

    we got snowed in visibility was horrible after about 830am we were having a horrible time glassing the areas. we saw a prime location and saw what looked to be a out of place black mass but it didnt move for quite a while and the snow clouds rolled in making pretty tough to see. we will give it another try later in the week(s) coming. was still nice to get out and about though.

    Go outside sterling a bit and you will find plenty of snow. I just drove back to wasilla from sterling and it took 6 hours. Pass on anchorage side was great but that's it... The only spotting for bears I could do was 30 feet in front of my truck..
