Re: 4ked Horns first bear.

Here are the photos.

Me and the front left paw.


Curt and the paw


Me and the gigantic oversized mellon,

and the bears head


Curt again. Note the dense brush behind Curt. This is where the bear was headed. Yikes [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]


You can see the bulletholes here. The red one on the bears left side a few inches below the stick is the entry hole. Exit is dark spot just below his right arm pit.


Head closeup.

Re: 4ked Horns first bear.

WHAT [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] you made your freind run into the bushes after a bear that YOU shot. Man I aint never bear hunting with you. I don't have a problem going into the bushes after a bear that I shot but when someone else shoots it I can't be sure enough of the hit to go after it.

You either got tough or stupid freinds and I haven't decided which it is yet. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 4ked Horns first bear.

Very nice 4ked. Wish I could have been there. your neighbor is a very stand up guy, and should be recognized as such. Guessing by the fact it takes you about 20 minutes to walk 900 yards, I would assume that your mobility is a little impaired? and your neighbor went into the bush and did his best to help you have a successful, safe hunt. Great story and pics.

Re: 4ked Horns first bear.

I didn't make anybody go after anything for me. That was part of the deal. I <u>never</u> would have gone hunting there if he had not offered to help with the retrevial. He saw the bear fall to the ground after the hit. He knew it was hit. He also knew that sending me after a bear would be almost like sending a guy in a wheelchair. If the situation looked like more than he wanted to deal with the dogs were only a phone call and an hour away.

Call them tough friends, call them stupid friends. I'll call them good friends and I will hunt with them any time they invite me to.

Actually that last night I decided to ride my bike in to the spot because my ankles had about had it. Left overs from an old car wreck.
