I haven't been up on the haul rd in three years-before all of the articles in national publications. Hear it's getting awfully crowded. Anyone been there in the last couple of years? Planning on going around the 15-25 of sept. for bear. Last time there were 3 different bears that were very stalkable, but no tag. Now with a tag I hope I see a stalkable bear!
And anyone know the legality of having a sidearm? I think it's legal, but if you shoot the bear after arrowing it (because it wants to kill you), I suspect that you'd have to turn it in as a DLP bear, and not keep it. I sure don't want to have to do that, and won't take a shot at an aware bear or a poor shot. But I don't want to totally leave it to chance either.
