I didn't get in on a single bear chase last year - used to do a lot of it, both up north and east of Eau Claire. Gonna have to call up the crew and head out soon.

Heard 4 hounds have been killed by wolves thus far. A couple were east of Eau Claire where some guys I know hunt.

I heard that bear numbers are up.

Didn't draw this year.

Want to put a Zwickey or a Bear Razorhead into one soon with the recurve

I should draw next year, probably could have this year but just went with the point. Should have 7 now. I think bear numbers are up overall mainly because of their expansion southward. More tags mostly because the DNR realized their previous pop estimates were way low - not necessarily because of an actual increase in numbers.

A bit off subject but I believe they just about doubled the pop estimate - the either weren't or now aren't even close. Must be the same guys doing the deer pop estimates...

Not a good year so far for the dogs v.s wolves 4 kia's and 5 injured. 2 kia have been in clark county. Looks like a bumper crop of wolf pups this year.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
    • 2 baldies were getting it on last thursday about 100 yards from where we were fishing. pretty cool. spring is in the air... LOL
