Thats so cool, my boys got a .30-.30 from their Grandpa (wife's side) this year and I thought about doing my spring bear hunt with it but wasn't man enough. That is super cool.

First of the year it seems then? Grats.
great looking 30/30
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Well he ran across the road into the brush. I went in after him, walking up the hill, was really thick. I was thinking no way I'm gonna find him again then looked up as I about ran him over. He was just as sulrised to see me as I was him 😂
That's getting after it!  Nice.
