But only a bear tag in hand. Sitting in my bear blind, this guy came in for a drink from waterhole, stayed 2 or 3 minutes, than wandered 75 yards down the trail and sparred with some trees. Motto of story: YOU DON'T NEED A KILL FOR A FULLY SUCCESSFUL HUNT.

Wow! I’m going to NM. To chase them, starting Sept 20. I’ll probably have a bear come to water.

"I’ll probably have a bear come to water".

Yep...this is what you see, when you have an elk tag, and no bear tag! (NM, 2016)

^^^Definitely helps!

Curious as to why you didn’t have an elk tag, Stix? Draw unit?

Only hunt bears in September. My favorite to eat and to hunt.

Well, I understand not having an elk tag in NM. It’s frustrating how many states systems make it difficult to have a bear or other tag like lion or wolf or even deer tag at the same time due to needing to draw.

I’ve had my best deer and bear and a wolf if it were easier/cheaper to have a secondary tag. It’s just too pricy to always drop tags for secondary animals.

Another nice thing about hunting AK. I always have a slew of other tags in my pocket just in case.

I was wrong, no deer but darn near ran over a flock of turkeys. When that season opens they'll be 'elsewhere'...
