So we are up hunting Blackies for the week and have put on over 22 miles in the mountains. Frozen, flat worn out and tired we retreaded out of the mountains today without a single Blackie spotted. Been here and done this hunt successfully a few times now and always had some sort of luck but have no idea what the deal is. Bad berry year, too cold at night, recent wild fires in the area or what??? We will be here through the weekend and would greatly appreciate anyone tossing us a bone as to an area to check out. With a shower, big greesy burger and a couple beers tonight we should have another hike to the top of a mountain on our boots. Thanks in advance guys!
