Another fun week of bear hunting!

A husband and wife (Marshall and Leigh from Louisiana) had been on a disappointing hunt last year in Montana, I convinced them we could provide a better hunt so they booked hunts. They were the first hunters to fill their tags this week and headed for home the next morning. Along the way they called and thanked us for such a good hunt and asked if the young boy had got a bear yet, they said they sure hoped he got one because he was such a nice kid. We also had a grandpa and grandson (Joe and Jacob from Ohio) hunting this week, I told them the boy had killed a bear the same day they left and that the grandpa was still hunting.

The next day the guides got on a big bear with the hounds that didn't want to tree and went into some really big country. Joe was unable to get into that country so Brain headed in after the dogs, the dogs finally treed the bear and Brian got to the tree but it was too remote for Joe to get there, Brain watched the bear come out of the tree in the middle of the dogs and had to let it go. He said it was a good one!

Brian got back out with the three hounds in the afternoon, everyone was exhausted that evening and Joe opted to get rested up for the next day rather than hunt bait that evening. Unfortunately the next morning was a bust, they didn't find a bear to run with the hounds. Joe was down to the last hunt that evening, they took him to a promising bait and he killed an average sow bear early that evening. We didn't kill any real big bear this week but it was another great week of bear hunting and there are four happy hunters headed home with smiles on their faces.

The pics are of Leighs young boar that Brian treed with the hounds. Congrats, nice shooting Leigh!

For those folks with a long way to travel do you/they cut and freeze the meat before they leave?

The majority of hunters from far away fly. If we freeze meat overnight and put it in a cooler it's still usually froze solid when you get home. Some people who drive across the country bring a generator and freezer, or they just plug in at a motel at night when they sleep, and some use dry ice. A few hunters don't want their meat, we get a fair amount of meat donated each year, I have a short list of people who like to get meat donations.

Tommy from Kentucky dropped a blackie on the first day he hunted and this morning filled his second tag with a color phase. Great shooting Tommy!

(overall we've had much better shooters this year)
