Did you ever get any info on bear huntin' D6?
I'm new to hunting D6 since I recently moved to this part of the state. It's close and figured I should get to know it...good for day trips etc.

I hunted bear in D 6, between Buck meadows and hwy.140 There is not alot of bears in that area, and the last few years it has been very dry.

Maybe D-6 isnt' really loaded with 'em. I hear they have bear problems around PineCrest on down to Arnold. Maybe some of the high country off the 108 corridor holds more. Going to poke around the Dardanelles this weekend looking.
I didn't see any sign on a short run up 140 last weekend and then off Chowchilla Mt Rd but I didn't get enough boot time in to write that area off yet.
I can vouch for the bears in Arnold area (D5). I've seen some while deer hunting and had a little close call with a rather large one 3 weeks ago just 15 miles up in the logging company land behind Arnold.
Anyone know the name of the company, Pacific logging something or other. I have hunted there but you are suppose to have written permission, although of the 40 or so folks I talked to up there during the season, no one did. I was thinking about getting actual permission this year.

I hunted the Bummers Flat area of D6 a few years back for deer. There was fresh bear sign all over and a couple of deer camps we had talked to had killed bears. I saw far more bear sign than deer.

I think that's Sierra Pacific - the largest privately held timber company in CA. The owner lives in Redding, CA...McDougal or McConnel...something like that. Anyway, they opened a new aquarium up there called Turtle Bay.
I hear there are bears as low as Mensigner BSA camp but that borders or is partially in the game refuge west of Beardsly.
I hunted D6 a weekend last year bow hunting around Jawbone pass and that's was the extent of my hunting up there. Saw one fresh bear track. I'd like to get a little higher up into the huckleberry brush for archery this bear season tho...
Thanks for the info. I think I'll have some serious fun trying to find some bear up in that country. Might even get lucky and see a deer bigger 'n a forky too.

Sounds like fun. I'm taking my 7 mo. old lab on the hike. I'll be getting up at 4:30-5 a.m. so I can get to one of the carson-i. trailheads around 7-7:30. Hope to get up to a good glassing pt. by 9 or so....look around a few hrs and back to the truck around 1 or 2. There are a few trailheads and areas that I hope to check out before archery season starts up.

Yes, I'll tell you right were to go. Hunt the Jawbone and Jawbone falls area around Cherry Lake. I see bear there every year. Good Luck
