Helped my best bud harvest his first bear yesterday for the Aug 15th Opener. (He's a member here and gave me permission to post for him). Not the biggest bear in my secret spots  8) but a good eating / first bear! Longest spot to shot  on Bears I've been a part of. From Spot to Trigger pull had to of been 30 min. (Felt like 3 hours!) When they're on the smaller side they get lost in the brush!  :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:  He had a 70 yard chest shot, hit a few inches high.... Center punched between the eyes! Quick Expire that way..

Lot's of berries! 1 down few more to go!

Do you have any pics of the paws? I'm trying to judge the size of the tracks I saw today! Good job  :tup:
One reasonable rule of thumb is width of forepaw in inches roughly correlates to length in feet

Alright good to know. I was measuring from front paw to back paw thinking wow these are small. Probably decent sized bears
