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

Sweet Fred! Congrats to your buddy.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

way to go!  Should really start to get interesting in the next few weeks.

Thanks everyone.  I have 2 more nice bears slamming 2 different baits, but they have been well after dark so far.
