Nice bear

Looks like a big one by the head and paws, how'd you deflate him??

I was hunting deer on Dec 3,2003. I saw something walking through a swamp I hunt near. At first I thought it was a black dog walking by. Saw it only for a second. About 20 min. later he came out and ran toward me. He stopped and threw his nose up in the air. I quess he didn't like what he could smell (ME). He ran up the hill and I shot him just behind the shoulder. He turned and wanted to back into the swamp where he came from. Not wanting to track a bear into a thick wet swamp, I shot him two more times. After I soiled my shorts, I came down out of the tree and started to dance. First bear I ever shot! The 8-pointer I shot the year before with the same gun but with 165 grain Nosler BT and ofcourse H-Varget.

Can you guess, I just now figured out how to post pictures. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: My Bear

Deergrunt, those are nice animals!

What county do you hunt in NY? I hunt Schoharie. They don't have a bear season in that county. I live in Orange where they have a bear season, I didn't actively pursue bear, but it was nice to have a tag while deer hunting. Although my local hunts are just to get out, my serious hunts (ie. those with my hunting buddies!) are in schoharie county.

Where did you take the deer & bear?

Re: My Bear

John,

My area is just inside rifle, you might even go thru it on your way to sharon springs, but as you said Avoid the A-holes is damn near impossible here, it gets very scary in the woods around deer season, last year they shot 2 donkeys, a brown goat, and a jersy calf, i saw the donkeys and the goat both were gutted and on the roof of their suv with a doe tag in its ear.
