I'd bet you he is in there. The hardest recovery I had was a blacktail buck the almost dropped in it's tracks. Was so thick I was almost standing on it before I found it. Keep looking and my money says you find him.

I am doing my best to get a plan together to get back out there.  I am currently 3 hours away from the kill site because I have an important meeting to lead.  After that, I am planning on grabbing a friend and going and getting soaked in the brush!

Dang man I wish I lived just a tad closer.  I'd bring my bird dog down to help. 

You've got this - don't let the doubt get to you.  Just keep going back to where the blood stopped and expand your search from there.

This is totally crazy. But I bought a bunch of flagging tape and a huge machete and I convince my contractor friend to come with me! Hopefully I will have a picture of a bear in a couple of hours. The Bear is in a bog and it's raining. :tup:

Good luck you will find him he won't be to far. He is probably piled up in some nasty stuff.

I came home from work and convinced my contractor to stop working on my house and go with me to find that bear.  It was raining HARD so of course there was no more blood trail.  We looked for a couple of hours, crashing through thick brush and mud, but we didn't find him.


Thank you all so much, everyone who helped me this season. Thank you j_h_nimrod for coming out to help me today, even though we were unable to connect.
