So this is a bit late but I had a black bear hunt this spring. We chose to fly across K-bay instead of take a water taxi etc. We flew in and spotted a bear from the Air and went about setting up camp in an area that we felt wouldnt give us away and where we could access him the next day when we could shoot. We watched the bear all day. Probably about 12 hours worth minus his nap when we couldnt see him for a bit. Around 9pm at night a group that had used a water taxi and hiked in on us showed up. They were rude, one guy especially. Initially they tried to setup camp right in the area we had our glassing stuff laid out. We told them we were watching a bear but flew in. They proceed to move to the area the bear had worked and shot him about 45 minutes later. Maybe its just me but I could not for the life of me figure out how people can be so rude and just intrude on an area someone is already staked out. I know its public land but this has happened to me now on several bear hunts and even using an area that is more remote I cant seem to escape these people.
Guess Im just frustrated. Been trying to successfully hunt bears for 3 years now and I keep having people problems.
