    Spent last weekend out there and spent a fair amount of time glassing for bears. Didn't see a one. We were in Cochrane and not hunting, but I love glassing. Didn't see any salmon left in the creeks either. If you can find some fish in the creeks, you will find bears.

    Good luck out there. I'm heading to Seward for my fist hunt. But let me know if you plan on making a trip back out later next month. Deer/bear would be fun

    I would check Long Bay. I saw a bunch of bears there get his time last year.

    Heading out in the morning, looking primarily for deer, but might take a bear if the opportunity presents itself.

    Thanks for the info and we too will be on the look out for deer. Rob, I'm up for another trip next month just let me know when. I'm sure we'll need to wait until the snow flies to push the deer down low.

    Seen several bears this weekend, all out of each for me and my son. We did put a stock on one, without success

    Well we didn't see a single bear. The normal areas that usually produce this time of year were bone dry, no fish left in the creek/river and not even one on the side of the hills. Ran into several others looking and they had the same results. Strange year.

    Hoose, were you guys out in PWS or the Homer area?
