Bear Picking

Sorry, JUDD but I told you I would show your bear video. Here's what happened the first day of the PA bear season 2009. When we arrived on location with gun and pack in hand I looked over to our short hill at about 500 yards and saw a lone bear working his way up the side of the mountain. We hurried and got unpacked and JUDD was going to kill his first PA black bear. Well as you'll see it didn't quite happen as planned. JUDD is a seasoned shooter and hunts chucks with me all spring and summer long range. When this large bruin steps up JUDD should have an easy shot........well maybe...

Re: Bear Picking

That would be a typical day for me. If any thing could go wrong it will

I am impressed by the calmness of the voices of everyone. Cool heads!

I'm sure the video will be a topic of conversation for years to come. Even if to keep Mr. JUDD a bit humble.

Re: Bear Picking

Thanks for posting the video Kevin. Enjoyed it and interesting to see how you go about LRH in your State. Judd just may be camera shy. Take the camera away and I bet he's tack driving again.

Re: Bear Picking

Good video. A teaching experience. Hard to tell, two very close shots, could have hit branches both times. I agree with there is always next year. Good luck for next year!!!
