17 year olds first bear!
« on: September 05, 2017, 10:44:32 AM »
My cousin Jlada shot his first bear today at 35 yards! I believe that this was the bear I missed hitting a tree limb on Sunday before I got mine. He shot it 200 yards from where I shot at it Sunday. I believe it's around 200 lbs. I'm so happy for him. That's 2 of 4 tags filled now.

Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

A grin like that makes it all worth while.  Congrats to your cousin!

Good job!!
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

Sweet!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
