Got it done in idaho!
« on: May 24, 2017, 04:46:28 PM »
Got it done last sunday in idaho! Its my first bear with my recurve bow. Bear was on camera almost every night and on my second day hunting, arrowed him down from about 15 yards. My father was with me the whole time filming it. At first i thought i shot a little too far back but luckily the angle of my shot made it a lethal one. Words couldnt express how happy i was when we tracked him down. Couldnt have done it without my dad! Now trying to fill my second tag this week!

That is awesome, nicely done!

Sweet! Nice bear! What's the recurve your using? Using it on the second?
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen
