    Default Tips for CO bear in Grand Mesa

    Hey All,

    Well, good news and bad news.
    Bad News: Didn't get the leftover bear tag for Steamboat Springs.
    Good News: DID get a leftover tag for Grand Mesa area!

    I know there are lots of bears in the area, but my tage covers 6 GMUs, soooo...
    Any tips to narrow it down would be greatly appreciated.
    Since I live on the Front Range (east side of the mountains), and I work for a living, on the ground scouting will be difficult ahead of time, probably impossible.

    Anybody have any general pointers to help me from wandering around aimlessly for a few days?
    Not looking for gps coordinates, just general info you are willing to share.
    I've only ever driven through this area before a few times on my way to/from Grand Junction. Never had the occasion to get out of the truck and roam around.

    Thanks in advance.

    I see bears and a lot of bear sign in the oak brush on the Forest Service Boundary on the South side of 421.

    BLM ground west of Cedaredge. In October when they are hyperphagic (hangry), bears are down in the apple orchards between Cedaredge and the BLM.

    Thanks to you both for the tips.
    I will jump on the computer and start e-plotting my trip.
