    Advice for 18 year old doing spring bear in Idaho first time

    Haha, well I will have zero familiarity with any unit and I don't know exactly where to look for em. We have 3 weeks to hunt though so hopefully we can figure things out after the first week or two.

    Advice for 18 year old doing spring bear in Idaho first time

    Basically one of the McCall biologists told me that there probably wouldn't be much of a point going to the river breaks this late in the season because they're so low. She said a lot of the green probably wouldn't be fresh anymore and a lot of bears might be higher up

    That's about what I figured. Just leaving it open for anyone who has specific advice for any of the units. I will definitely keep elevation flexibility in mind as I e scout though, I hadn't thought about that much before. Thanks

    Summer sausage is exactly what I was thinking. Having straight meat on hunts like this is invaluable

    Cool, thanks. I'll think about the peak stuff. I have to watch my numbers but if I have room maybe I'll mix some in

    All good stuff. The nut butters are probably something I'll do. I like the idea of doing ramen and chicken or tuna for a lunch instead of just cold shit. I will definitely use that list of mountain house meals when I'm picking them out. Have you tried any of the other brands of backcountry...
