Headed out in the morning with my youngest son, for black bear here in central Washington.

He's taking the 30-30 Glenfield with the 2.5x Leupold and 170 gr factory ammo.

I think I'm taking the .500 S&W revolver... Just for a change... We'll see what I yank out of the safe in the morning.

Regards, Guy

Back from our morning hunt. Lots of bear sign, no bear. Stopped at a great cafe on the way home for a huge meal. I think it's nap time now.
Young, scruffy fellow claims he's related to me. Carrying my 30-30 Glenfield:


The 500 S&W stayed home. Shoulder holster and the hunting pack weren't getting along. So, took the Ruger Number One, aka "Dad's bear rifle."


Big game?


Got a text from a friend a few minutes ago - they've got a bear breaking branches in their orchard... We may have a better place to try!

A guy who hunts with us took this picture from his tree stand. But bear does not open here till the 1st of September.

Oh boy! Don't know how I missed this before, but there is an early season for bear this year . It's only 3 days, but hey, I'll take it if I can get it.

You should. Life's too shot and the world too beautiful not to get outside.

Been outside a lot, just haven't been hunting in a month.

Will try to remedy that soon. I think we'll go for grouse, and carry some bear-worthy sidearms.

We finely got some rain here!
But I still have not gone out for bear and there are some big ones around.
Don't like hunting in the rain...
