Skagit bear down! Got off work after a 12 hour nightshift picked up the girlfriend at the house and decided to go visit a trail cam that had some recent bear activity. What I thought would be a down and dirty memory card swap turned into fun filled evening.  After walking into my camera we continued down the road where me and jkononen had seen some fresh peels from the week prior. The walk was short as me and the gf rounded a corner and sure enough this guy was maybe 100 yards away. I took my shot and the bear took off downhill crashing through everything in its path. I ran down the road hoping to get a follow up shot but the terrain was too thick but I could hear him crashing around below side hilling. I knew a little ways down the road it opened up and ran down hoping to get another shot in him. He popped out just like I was hoping but not long enough for me to make the shot. I knew if we waited he would step back out on the road and he did 25 yards Bang!Flop! It was exciting to have the gf with me I found out later she has never seen a bear before and today she helped me get it into the truck. There was half a dozen new peels where this bear lay right off the road and his stomach was filled with grass and dandelions.

After skinning him I came to the conclusion first shot was a clean miss just got lucky we had the wind in our favor and the path the bear took we had a 2nd opportunity
