Congrats. I've been up there before and it is rough country. That's quite a trip.

Very nice story, thanks for sharing.
Any long range shots?

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

I was actually hoping for either calling my bear or making a long range shot. Neither came about. The bear was very cooperative and worked his way within 200 yards of our hide by the time we got there. The shot was almost exactly 200 yards so no big story there.

I checked the bear in at the wildlife office a couple of days ago and they estimated him at 9 or 10 years old which surprised me since he wasn't that big. I think its a pretty tough life for a bear in The Canyon.
