2017 Spring Bear Kelly Hill Hunt.
« on: May 29, 2017, 04:44:16 PM »
We were rained on hard for days. Didn't see much sign. I ran into a nice big cinn. bear. but as I cambered my rifle it jammed.  :dunno: The big boar just sat there as I freaked out. Lol The week was slow as week scouted new areas. But the last day I found the mother load. I spot a nice black boar and took the shot at 168 yards.  :yike: I missed  :yike:. Hmmmmmm I looked ever place and nothing. Well I missed he just looked around after I shot and before I could get a 2nd shot  he ran off. Then I spotted another bear 1/2 mile away and took a 365 yard shot and missed.  :yike: :dunno: I just don't know. Well my buddy and I headed to camp for lunch and after I ate. I jumped on the ATV to go sight in my rifle in a clear cut. As I pulled up I spotted a Cinn. Bear in the clear cut. I moved in and she was 70 yards away. I took the shot and she bolted. As I cleared the bank she was standing and rocking. I took aim again and dumped her. Bear down ........ :IBCOOL: I drove to camp and took care of my bear. I told my buddy it might be a good idea to go back to the hot spot I missed the 2 bears at. So he headed that way as I took off to get ice. I recieved a call 1 1/2 hours later and he said bear down. Right on his first bear. He also said he missed a nice Cinn. Boar as big as his ATV. and shot the other one in the clearing I missed my 2nd bear. So proud of my friend for getting it done. We filled both bear tags on the last day of are week long spring bear hunt.

I was drawn for that tag 3 years ago I think. On that trip I seen 8 bears in 2 days. This trip we seen 11 but it wasn't until the weather got nice.
