    Yup...

    Fortunately there should be enough party animals up there this weekend to keep the Bears off the lake...

    There's always going to be more. I'm sorry the cats out of the bag and everyone on the forum knows about the lake at the end of a ROAD. I hate crowds as much as anyone, but I don't agree with criticizing a guy for giving another guy a pointer about a popular road system lake.

    The reason there is always more bears is the vertical climb through a half mile of the thickest alder I've found yet!

    No, got pushed back down the mountain by snow that moved in the second time I found a bear up there. The first time I spotted Cubs after half an hour or so watching the bear.

    I've stalked 5 bears on the peninsula now and I've only put the scope on one, decided to try for a better shot and lost it.

    Oh......how did I know you'd probably say something like that.

    Don't know how long you've lived here, but there used to be some pretty good hunting down that road. And I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be saying that if it still was....

    All I'm sayin' was it would have been nice for AGL to just pm the OP about it like he suggested in the first place......

    Canoe--Take extra food and prepare to spend extra days waiting out the wind on that dam lake.
    If I were looking for a canoe hunt out of ER I would look north to some of the rivers.

    I thought that 87.7% of the forum members here have me on ignore, and therefore do not see my posts. And the other 12.3% of forum members think that I am Anti-hunting anyway.

    Back in the '70s there were blackie;s right in "downtown" Soldotna. One very early morning going to launch my boat to go king fishing there was one chewing grass at the "Y", then another day one was dumpster feeding at the "four seasons" restaurant now called buckets.Then another was being chased
    by camera toting residents down riverside drive. I could go on and on how people explosion has chased Bear out of their normal habitat.OK, back to the canoe thread.

    Absolutely! It makes no sense to me at all when people post specific hunting locations and directions on the open internet for thousands of people to view. Even if a fraction of those reading the post decide to check it out, then there could very liekly be a dramatic impact on the resource, i.e., land and animals. There are countless locations in our state where that particular area cannot support such a dramatic increase in hunting pressure. I wish people would only PM specific locations...it should be a forum rule here.

    My sincere apologies to the OP for side-tracking the thread, and I'm not picking on any individual in this thread...I've seen it a bazillion times here.
