the 2013-2014 was our worse we found very few that year. this year was nice had to make very few long drives most time had one jumped in a hour. all the older men in our crew said prob be the best season we'll ever see. but i think the population is really taking off now

When the mast is heavy get out of the truck and hit the mountain. The bears will lay in the thickest draws and hollows with food and water. Was a good season here. Honestly dont know how many we caught. Didn't keep track, but was my best year. A lot of highs and lows. Best dog I ever owned got killed. Honestly thought my season went down the toilet after that but it didn't. Seen some pups turn it on and seen plenty of bears.

My best year by far. I haven't been huntin for a long time but I definitely saw more action than I have before. Ran alot of mean ones. Luckily most of em weren't big enough to do much damage. Had a few dogs get tore up. My pup really turned it on this year and showed me what I wanted to see. It was a rough year for our whole group bcuz of some medical issues a girl that hunts with us has been havin, but she did hunt a few days and killed a bear despite all of that. Not sure exactly how many we caught but I do know it was a good one.
If they don't bay, they don't stay

Catch em and stretch em, tree em and free em

Hydro does Alberta allow the use of dogs on bears now or is it still just spot and stalk or baiting.

It is a grey area.
I have never gotten a clear answer. Some officers say yes, others say no. Regulations dont really specify.
I usually bait this time of year anyways. :D

I don't think you can use dogs for bear, this is right from the regs;

It is unlawful to:
be accompanied by a dog while hunting big game or allow a dog to pursue big game except when hunting cougar under the authority of a Cougar Licence, from December 1 to the last day of February (the winter season)

There might be a law there only thing I know is my brother was living in Alberta for 10 years and could only run his hounds on lions he finally had enough and moved back to ontario so he can run his dogs on bear and coyotes with us
