Another sleeping bear during the high hunt!!  Double lunged him but he took off into the brush at dusk and didn't find him til the next AM - never saw any deer, though definitely heard them
How was the meat and hide the next day? I shot one at dusk and didnít find it till the next morning. It had died on its back. Quarters were fine but the back straps had a funky smell. Fleshed the hide as good as I could and put it in the freezer but I Havnt taken the hide to a taxidermist yet so I donít know if itís any good or not. Seems like it will be but I know it doesnít take much decomposition for the hair to slip when tanning

I didn't save the hide but it seemed to be in pretty good shape.  Meat smells fine, tho I was worried because it's core was still pretty warm the next AM (legs seemed to have cooled down).  It was about 12 hours between shooting and finding him. Not ideal but I think I got away with one... I'm going to turn most of him into sausage though just to be on the safe side
