Thanks Jason . . .

Altho your Coyote hunting is better than here I'm sure. I'd give a Lot to have the caliber of Coyote hunting that Texas and Arizona does.
I you can ever make it up here I'll show you some different kind of country than you have there that I think you'll enjoy. Bring big heavy bullets. :-)

Hello Cas,

I have never tried callin a bear on purpose yet, but I was going to try this year.

I did spot a griz about two years ago, and managed to Pi$$ him off real good with a Sceery AP-5. I decide I should leave the area then.

Cas -

Add me to the list

I do a bit of bear calling here up by the Yukon boarder. Lots of griz around with a black bear or two also. Blacks and griz react differently to the calls. As AY said he really p$$'d one off. That is a common response with griz. You had better be ready because they can come in very quick. Nice to have a buddy for backup or to spot the one that sneaks in.

Timberking - Sorry you've been beat again as griz opened here Aug 10th & runs until June 30th in 20E & no 5 hour drive either. No closed season on blacks as already mentioned.
Anyway good luck and have fun.

You guys in the north country are something else!!! I've called in a few blackies, and more than a few cougars, and treed more with dogs; but calling in grizzly country? That has got to be the ultimate rush! Something akin to calling in Africa where the big cats roam. If you ever come up missing, they might find nothing but your boots! Have fun guys. Sounds like a blast!

Cas,

It was down by the Hope cut off. I wasn't looking for him I was just scouting the area. I used to drive that road once a week to Seward. I have noticed the biggest areas of sightings and signs for coyotes were....

Anyway there was a body of water between the two of us, but rest assured if it wasn't I bet he would have came after me. He swayed his head and snarled at me then stood up a few times and popped his teeth at me once or twice. It lasted about 10 minutes before he head bcak into the woods. The call I used to get him fired up was the Sceery AP-5 Snow shoe Hare. My guess is he probably winded me. I don't remmeber if he was in season yet. He might not have been becuase I didn't have my rifle with me. I think If I wanted to call one in it would be from a tree stand.

Sounds to me like you had the old boy plumb Riled up! :-) As to tree stands...they have been known to climb trees which would add to the adrenelin rush!

I am going to try the bear calling this fall. I have the foxpro ready to roll. Now all I have to do is get some time off.
