Kaboom. Bear kabobs.
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.

So he is safe tell the 15th. Then me and him have something's to talk about.

On another not. This area I did have a trophy rock out. Had the cam there since beginning of June. 2k pictures later. Not a bull in the area that really made my hit list. So I pulled the rock and left the cam cause this guy obviously made my bear hit list. So my question is this. How soon can you hunt an area that you had so called "bait" out on? Even though I have thousands of pictures and he never once touched the rock. I don't wanna be questioned about shooting over bait. Again the trophy rock "bait" was pulled 20 days ago and season opens in two days. He still frequently comes in and passes through like clock work.

Uh if it's bear bear season you definitely need to be shooting, heck if it's West side you can another tag anyways if if wasn't that big, no shortage of bears over here.  :tup:
