I filled my second bear tag tonight! We walked up a logging road, the rain had just ended, and we spotted this guy 200 yards up hill. He came around a stump and gave me a nice frontal shot and I took the opportunity to drop him. I can't believe what a beast my husband is for rolling this guy down that blackberry hill!

I got to poke a hole in this guy on sept 1st   30 minutes out of the gate.  He was spooked by  something and ran right to me. By the time I got a shot he was at full speed running right at me at a mere 20 feet.  It was more like self defense lol. After the arrow hit him he turned back but only made it about ten yards before piling up in the buck brush he had come out of.  Not the biggest but is my first and I couldn’t be happier to have him
Congrats jburkett!

Nice work Crowinghen - if you don't mind sharing, what meat cutter so you use for the bears?

I shot my bear Friday and my son shot his Saturday.  I would say we had a good couple days. 

This is my son's first bear / first big game animal ever.   Proud dad!!!!

Finally got my first black bear yesterday. He was about 150lb. Did a solo hunt and went about four miles back up my usual mountain and he was 80 yards off the trail eating berries. Time for some bear roast.
