    @Gregg thank you! I was always the same really. I didn’t want to drive them and all that. Nothing against it, just not my thing. So bear season would just be rifle season scouting lol. But last year I tried to spot and stalk and got on one. So I tried the same this year knowing it worked last year and was able to connect :)
