I didn't draw, but the wife did, her first bear. The kids gave her the hunt for mothers day. Bearpaw outfitters great bunch to deal with.

One of coolest hunts. I never layed foot in unit put in a lot of research and scouting. Made 3 trips over to hunt. Passed 14 bears before liking this bear. From start to finish just a great experience.  I've got in really good shape over last 4 months with lots of miles on the boots.

Huckleberry tag filled! Used fawn in distress call, this little guy comes in from my left side, 22 yards. Sneaked in behind my back, did not even hear him. Could not pass up the opportunity, he will make a nice wall mount.

Harvested my first bear! Shot her at 115 yards with my Tikka 300 win mag, she took off in the deepest nastiest stuff you can think of. Trailed her slowly and methodically and lost her trail. I stopped at the last print I could see. I had a view of about 10 square feet around me. I'm looking all around except directly to my right. I look to my right and I see a bears head staring rite at me laying on the ground under a tree. Not knowing its dead I raise my .44 mag, point it at her head and move the sights were I thought her vitals would be. Boom goes the .44 she gets up and runs, boom goes the .44 again and now no sight and trace of the bear. Tracked some more. After long discussion we decide she has to be dead or hurt real bad. We hike out get some water and gear and hike back down. Found her bunched up under a tree within 50 yards of the last time I saw her.  My brother in law Kirk was a great help (couldn't of done it without him) "no bait just bears" is a great read and very useful. I also learned a lot from "education of a bear hunter" as well. And a HUGE shout out to Dale with Bear paw outfitters on the DIY map and the support from the field on how to hunt the terrain!

BTW
I need a good taxidermist for a bear rug. Any suggestions?

This is the identical scenario how I got my bear.  Right down to the yardage and coming from my left.....weird.  Fawn distress is really gettin to them right now.  Way to go! :tup:

This bear did not even notice me until I had his shoulder in the cross hairs. Turned his head towards me as I raised the gun. Boom. Split the heart and clipped both lungs. He did a 720 spin and flopped. 100 lbs of meat on that guy, without bones.  Breakfast sausage, bear tacos, deep fried bear nuggets :)
