Dang. Solid work with the recurve.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Here's my Washington spring bear. Shot with my grandfathers 30-30. He passed away 10 years ago and this was my first time hunting with it.

Dropped a bear yesterday morning. Buddy in the middle spotted it so he got the shot. 230yds, 34 degree angle down a washout in a blueberry patch. Ran 20yds and flopped. First bear for any of us to be a part of and we had a great time. The pack out and few miles back to the truck wasn't the most fun but it's all part of the experience. Already planning the next hunt, we've got more tags to fill!
