Hello everyone, I just started to bow hunt this year. I bought a 2011 PSE Evo in the spring and been practicing almost every day. I currently live in Eagle River, AK. and have picked up a few registration tags. one of them is the black bear up on the south fork of eagle river. I went there two weeks ago and walked 5 miles on Redezous Ridge where I got way up on these hills were all the berries are, glasses around for a while. I ran into a small brown bear but had to spook him off. ended up not seeing anything else the rest of the day. A week ago I went to the nature center were I had to hike past icicle creek. long story short, I didn't see any black bear the whole day. I tried getting high in the valleys and glassing around but nothing. A couple of days ago I decided to go to eklutna lake around 6 in the morning and see If I could get me a bull moose. I hiked 5 miles on the atv trail than hiked 2 miles on the bond ridge trail. I found some good amazing grassy fields where I started calling some cow calls. long story short. I didn't see anything or hear anything. I don't know what I'm doing wrong or if there is some type of technic I need to be trying. PLEASE help me a new hunter out with some good advice. I got the itch to get me a kill. Thanks for your time. Thinking about going out Wednesday the 25th.
