Great pictures. Saw 4 of them this week over in the white mountains. One was a mama with two cubs. Mama and one of the cubs were jet black but the other cub was chocolate like that one. Love seeing bears!

Internet forums are a great place to discuss your method of hunting, but not such a great place to criticize someone else's.

It is a really sweet spot, on a game trail just below a saddle that forms a natural funnel between two drainages.  I was pretty sure I would catch bears and Coues moving back and forth.

If I leave the camera there long enough, photos should look even better when the ferns come up.

Sweet pic, I have a video I took on my daughters Jr elk hunt last October that I am saving for the picture/video contest that Amanda does every year that is awesome. 4 bears, one sow and three cubs of which one was a brownee. They were 56 feet from us and jumped into a pond and swam across the thing twice.

3 cubs?  That's a rarity... :-)

Yep,the whole trip was a rarity. Watched those bears come in, then a rag horn 5X and the an hour later a 6X. Two days later my daughter shot her cow on the same tank.

Dude that video is a winner for sure!!  Now I know who AZelkhunter is. I have seen 2 bears on that tank in the last 10 days. 

You draw any tags this year?

Hey Zoltar, hope all is well for you. I am surprised there is still water in the tank as dry as it’s been. I drew a cow tag up by Flagstaff and my Uncle and his wife drew a late Bull tag up in your neck of the woods. How bout you.
