2nd Bear Down!!!!!!!
« on: August 06, 2009, 08:29:40 PM »
Filled 2nd tag this season!!! This one seems to have a big head. I wonder what the skull is going to score?! Great end to my season! My Fiance has her tags left. This could have been her bear but she had to work.

Still trying to get the first one.  You must be hunting the right spot.

Thanks everyone. I found this spot believe it or not because my fiance wanted to take a nap. I went to a area I had been wanting to scout for awhile and even though it was noon I wanted to look for sign. I walked in behind the gate 100 yards and looked up the hill and caught a bear going over the top. Seen 3 that day and killed one. every time I go into that spot I see anywhere from 2-7 bears. Its a hot spot.

Congrats on the bears..  Way cool, am sooooooooooo jealous.
By my honorable conduct as a hunter let me give a good example and teach new hunters principles of honor, so that each new generation can show respect for their god, other hunters and the animals, and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.

Congrats 180!  Now describe the spot (don't need to tell where it is, just trying to get an idea of the terrain you shot it in, types of food, cover, etc).  I'll hopefully connect on one this weekend.

I got both my bear skulls back today. The bear in this post has a 18 11/16 skull. Just wondering if you think it is worth putting in the book?
