So excited! I have been getting preference points for 10 years and just got my bear tag in the mail!!!!!!!! I am posting this on here because no one in my family has any idea how pumped I am. It must have been fate that the year I buy a big brother to My 44 rem mag that the stars aligned and I actually got the tag! My new 45-70 SBL has double duty this first year and I couldn't be happier. I got Zone D which is historically best bear zone in Wisconsin. I have never bear hunted. I have thought about going to Canada a few times, even have a passport to go just haven't pulled trigger on that trip yet. Now I can go in my home state. I think they put out more tags this year. I heard it in local sportsman paper. Wondering if anyone has experience with any guides in Zone D although I am tinkering with doing it all myself it would take a lot of pressure off to go with guide. Any opinions would be appreciated.
