 :chuckle:  My hunting partner got out of the stand at 2035...this fella showed up at 2059.





Meanwhile at another bait a mile away these two were having fun!  :)

Mr. Big showed up last night and scraped a bunch of the bait on the ground.  I think he didn't like the Sweet COB on top of all the icing and cookies.  Then Mr. Big's Girlfriend showed up and then HOLY CRAP  Mr. Big's DADDY showed up, what a stud bear!!!!!!  As soon as I can get the photos to upload I will share!  :)

That is a giant spring bear Machias.  His belly would probably be dragging on the ground come fall.  Too bad you are going to have to stick an arrow in him.

A friend of mine is currently in the stand, I would love to see him smack either of the boars.

Well, unfortunately, this is my friends first year bow hunting, classic new bow hunters mistake, he did not bend at the waist and sadly shot right over two different bears last night. One mid-size bear and one bigger bear.  He was beating himself up last night, but it is a common mistake for new bow hunters.  He's a good Hunter and will learn from last night.  At least they did not freak out and walked off not really knowing what happened and we're back on the bait later in the night.
