Pete's Bear Hunting Pack Dump

I started bear hunting when I was in college, and to be honest, I wasn't very good at it. My techniques were as bad as my gear and it took me years to produce any results. Once I realized I should be glassing more than hiking, I began to find bears and fill my tags. Lots of glassing demands quality insulating layers and hardshell outerwear. Sometimes sitting still is the toughest test of our patience and our gear.
