Bear curse is over!!!
« on: August 16, 2019, 12:26:46 AM »
Long story short I shot a bear over ten years ago it rolled and took off no blood or anything, never found it. I have been dreaming of getting a bear ever since. After a lot of blood, sweat,prayers and tears I finally connected. A couple weeks ago on Saturday the 3rd I was biking in behind a tree farm gate right around 9 am and I was a mile or two in and a bear crossed the road about a 100 yards in front of me. I got off my bike, grabbed the gun out of the pack scabbard and booked it across the semi open clearing he was headed into. I was able to sneak within 10 yards of him tearing up stumps. I let the old tikka 270 bark and he dropped in his tracks. I still can't believe I finally got it done!

Way to go. Nice bear.

Nice!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
