The month-long NW wind continued through the final three days of spring bear hunting so I took my spike camp gear back up to Otter Pee Island. There is a 200+ acre meadow there that is prime brown bear habitat this time of year, and the Island is about 2 miles downwind. It's a safe place to camp in grizzly bear country. The odds of a bear swimming 300 yards just to eat a skinny senior citizen are very low.
