Re: Going to be a ruff start...
mosquitos chewed me alive last weekend on my first bear hunt trip this season; only on the ridglelines though thankfully, not my campsite!
Looking forward to grouse season and other small game opening in a couple days, going out with the shotgun for grouse primarily but will have slugs ready for any unlucky bear.
Good luck to ya!
