Not too exciting of a story for this guy! Got out at first light with my buddy, we set up on a unit where we deer hunt a lot, he had seen a bear there a couple weeks earlier and also had one in there last July. At first light we ended up being socked in so we bumped around to some other spots to check for deer and maybe a bear. After a while of that we headed to see if the dog had burned off which it had. We set up and glassed for a couple hours and only turned up deer. We bailed out again to go set some cameras up in a spot that wed been seeing lots of bucks in for a break from glassing. When we got back after setting the camera we hit the glass again, after scanning for a bit I looked down and shot my wife a text. Just as I set the phone down I looked up and saw a big black blob where there wasnt one before. Hit him with the glass and confirmed it was a bear. Got on the gun and just as he was about to hit a leave strip of timber he paused and I put one in the neck at 400 and rolled him. He rolled out of sight so we gave it a few minutes, reviewed footage and then headed down to look for him. My buddy found him right as we broke down off the ridge and then we got to work! Awesome day! Hes a dandy, very happy with him.

Leisurely start today. First calling set at 9:30. No action but got to watch the wildfire smoke roll in.  Went to the next drainage over and started the second set. 20 minutes in got bored and started glassing a big cut about 1.5 miles away.  Saw a black dot, left my caller where it lay and rushed over. Stopped about a half mile short and walked the road above to the slash pile he was closest to when I spotted him. Peeked around the pile and he hadn't moved. Easy 70 yarder.
