Today I am joined by a return guest, and one of my personal favorites, Mr. Scott Haugen. Since Bear season is upon us and I have a spring bear tag in my pocket, it is only right that we spend far too much time talking about spring bear hunting. My apologies to all the diehard elk and mule deer folks who could careless about bears. Bear hunting is top of mind for me and I love chatting with guys like Scott who are far more experienced bear hunters than myself. I learn so much from getting the opportunity to just chat with experienced hunters, and I hope everyone else picks up something along the way as well.
With over 50 bears under his belt this episode has some great nuggets of wisdom as well as some great tips on bear meat and meat care for all you bear hunters out there this year. We also cover a lot of specifics like focusing on food sources and things to look for like how to spot sign from 1000 yards away. Scott breaks down black bear behavior through the spring months and how heavy winters like the ones we just had can affect bear moments in the spring months.
