So what would anyones guess be about, when to start a brown bear hunt this year in the Valdez area? With the weather acting funny this year i wonder when the boars will be out and about enough to hunt them. I have never hunted the Valdez or Eureka (SP?) area and would appreciate some advice from people that have hunted either area in the past years. Thanks for any input, just trying to figure out what dates would optomize my chances.
