Kind of surprised nobody here has one down yet.  It is pretty slow still, but maybe ill make it happen tomorrow.

Few days ago i had my foxpro set up 20 yards from me playing bear cub distress and i fell asleep.  Oops

We're on our way to the taxidermist and butcher; Corey (JediHunter) will post the story and more pictures tonight. The pictures don't do the bear justice. He's a nice one. Old melon head boar that was peeling a ton of trees. A big shoutout to Jerome for all his help! Couldn't have done it without you. Also thank you to everyone else that helped out with information. Xforce and Bowhunter and everybody else. Now it's my turn to try an find one!

Bear with me my story telling isn't that great....
Opening morning we, Duckhunter14 and I, got up and started cruising the roads looking for signs. We found what looked to be fresh peels right off the road and decided to get out and take a listen. Not five minutes goes by and we hear a lot of thrashing in the timber below. Anyone who has been up in this country knows how thick it can be. We couldn't see him but he was making loads and loads of racket. That went on for an hour and a half then it went quiet. We spent the next 24 hours canvassing the area for other sign and we were disappointed. We decided to give this pig another chance to step out so last night we parked at the bottom and hiked up and took a listen. He got restless around 7 and decided to give us one chance. He stepped out at about 25 yards and I let the Remington 700 sing it's song right through both his lungs. He turned around and rolled to the bottom of the grade and took his last gasp.

After getting him gutted and skinned we took him to the butcher this morning and he was 162lbs hanging. Factor in guts and hide and were thinking he was anywhere from 250 to 275.

Thanks again to all the guys that helped us get my first black bear.

Who's next?

Blues bear down! Had an amazing trip last weekend in the backcountry and connected with a bear I had taken pictures of on a scouting trip. Spotted him from 900 yards away and was able to get to 360 yards and made a great shot just seconds before he was into the timber.
