Here is a link to my account of the bear from my Avatar. My biggest bear was shot before I became a member here. I will see if I can find a pic somehow to post.

CaNine, yes I have been fortunate to have had some great adventures out after the bears. I miss it, having moved to Michigan a couple years ago.
