Bear and Elk hunting
This past fall I received some emails inquiring about some of the hunts I go on. On the schedule for this spring is Bear in Idaho. The Outfitter we go with offers a very affordable Bear hunt in an area where 80% of the Bears we saw were color phase Black Bears. I saw 25 Bears in 5 days and our camp was 100% successful. I took a beautiful chocolate Bear with a yellow V on its chest. Tags and license are available without having to draw. Next, we are returning to Montana for Elk and Deer. This hunt is on 14,000 acres of private land and has outstanding hunting opportunities for trophy Bulls. Accommodations are first class. Transportation is via 4x4 Jeep. Good guides and excellent food. Large Trout swam in the private, 90 acre Lake. Tags are guaranteed, however this hunt is for wild Elk and Deer, so plan on hunting! Email me if you would like to join us. Ghost

Hi Mike,
Our Elk/Deer hunt will be Nov 11-16 2002. We have guaranteed tags. Our app's/money has to be in around March 1st. The hunt revolves around the Elk migration out of Yellowstone Nat'l Park on the wintering grounds. Deluxe accomodations sure make it nice. The beauty of the area is worth the entire trip. A large lake and the Yellowstone river abounds with Trout, Ducks and Geese. Good Mule Deer and Whitetail hunting but the Elk are incredible. Area holds Bighorns, Mt. Goat, Cougar, Grizzly and Black Bear. Great photo opportunities as well. I only have two openings left. Good fishing, Ghost

Same here Mike,
One of our members on the Elk hunt had to bow out today. That leaves an opening. Talk to you this weekend. Have a good one, Ghost

Don't forget to add a harris bipod, the 27" model. You'll need it. I bought the H model I believe. It pivots. Let me know what caliber your taking and cartridge. Ghost

Hello Ghost,
Thank you for all the great gear tips! I've been doing some price shopping for gear and am looking forward to the spring bear hunt.

I should here back from my friend (who may be jioning us on the Bear Hunt) in Colorado tommorow. Also I should know wheather I'll be able to work out the timing on the Elk hunt (although it looks like I probably won't be going on that one).

Some of the bulls that are wintering on the ranch are the kind we dream of. There are three 7x7's that are running together. I'm hoping to go out in early summer and hunt for sheds. We are going in mid November. We only have two weeks left for the license deadline. On the Bear hunt, don't forget the Duranon Permanone spray. If it gets real warm the insects can come out. Duranon is the best brand I've found. Ghost

We use an outfitter in British Columbia for a Black bear & Rainbow trip in the spring. 5 day hunt includes food, lodging and guide service. Beautiful lodge located in a five lake system with rainbow trout up to eight lbs. Moderately priced Hunting & Fishing with an excellent Outfit! Color-phase Black bear and he may have a Spring Grizzly left.

Hello Ghost,
Sorry I haven't had a chance to return your call, I was away this weekend and cell was out of range. Talked to my friend in Durango today, although he still hasn't given me a solid no, I doubt he's going to make the trip.

I settled on the Model 70 300 Win. Magnum and have been gearing up for the trip, this week is very crazy here, my week is jam packed, I was going to call you now but think its about midnight there. I'll try to call you tommorow but am in meetings most of the day.

I'm going to break in my new rifle on a boar trip on the 28th, and can't wait for SPRING BEAR!

Mike, Good hunting on your trip. We had a wild game dinner over the weekend and the wild boar was excellent BBQ. Hope you get a good one! Ghost
