Went up to NE Oregon for a dose of Vitamin D and a solo Spring Bear Hunt Adventure. Hit this big boar but he made an escape back into his willow creek bottom bedroom. It was pretty exhilarating sneaking through the maze of deadfall logs searching for him and the adrenaline rush got real with a final 10 yard encounter to put him down.

That’s a good bear for NE Oregon. Did you get into much snow? Pretty cool with the tracks.
Yes - there was about a 4 mile section with snow drifts that are 2-3' deep. Some ATV riders can make it, but often have difficulty. The tracks definitely give some mobility advantages.
