H20Hunters 2013 Spring Bear Thread: Corned bear review
« on: March 07, 2013, 12:33:03 PM »
Is it too early to start my thread for my upcoming 2013 spring bear hunt? Nah....I don't think so at all. I put in this year for Monroe and had three points going in. Very happy to have drawn. I've already been texting back and forth with D-Rock and Ripper, both of whom have drawn tags in the last few years. Very excited to be able to have guys that have offered support that have boots on the ground experience. Who knows.....maybe I'll get the new bow bloody before elk season!

Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

D rock will have you all trained up on being camp boy before elk season, I think the draw was fixed just for this reason!  :cue:

Congratulations.  I drew it a few years ago.  There are plenty of bears in there.

Maybe just maybe this could be a very special year for H20hunter.  Brand new bow coming spring bear tag.  Elk hunting with a "elk hunting god". What a year its going to be.

H20,
I am well versed in the art of drinking beer and bear spotting.  You can place me on a stump with a half rack and a radio and I'll be of great service.  Let me know if you'd like to hire me, I work for free.
