So i figured i would ask the forum what everyone's thoughts are on etiquette as far as bear hunting in PWS is concerned?
Let me set up the scenario of the experience my group had this weekend and you all tell me what you think....
We were out hunting in a medium size PWS bay this weekend and as most bear hunters do we were kind of just putting along the beach kind of doing laps watching the beach/hillsides and looking for bears. So in this bay there are a few smaller bays or coves, basically this is what happened to us. We were coming up to one the smaller bays and visibility was really low due to low clouds/fog. I would say we were less than a quarter mile away from the entrance of the smaller cove and this boat was running on step about a half mile off the opposite beach and this boat - as soon as it came in view (so they could see us as well) made a 90 degree turn to port and went right into the bay we were heading right for and cut us off. To me that was a dorky move to pull, kinda like if your fishing a river and not that many people are around and you see someone hook up and you move right next to them, we call that tourist style.. But really on a bear hunt you would do that to someone? come on.. if that person is a member they will know who they are i'm not gonna describe boats or give boat names but come on now you were clearly heading for the end of the bay and you saw us and turned to cut us off... If i could talk to you face to face i would tell you that your a Dork and that was a dorky move you pulled. There are bear every were out there and we were clearly heading in a path and for some reason you decided that you HAD to get in front of us.. Whatever dude
Side note we saw plenty of bears but passed on all, we were pretty picky this time looking for that special bear. We had fun none the less but i mean come on who does that?
