Hard to believe that our south west Oregon Spring Bear season is just around the corner. I've recently picked up a new "toy" for the upcoming season. It's a Honda 500 cc four-stroke "Foreman" ATV complete with a back seat (not on the bike) and a cool little electric winch.
I took it out this evening for a few hours of scouting and found a few stumps that were tore up last fall. In the coming weeks I'll be puttin' some serious miles on this ATV scouting areas where I'll be chasing spring bears in April. As it was I saw a nice flock of long beard Toms and a ruffed grouse. I also found a lot of elk sign and some decent deer rubs that were made last December.
