Re: Bear Picking

well judd, wait till next year might not be that easy. i started hunting that very area almost 60 years ago. so far ive put my tag on one. your fortunate to be with a good group, and hunting in a good area. also hunting long range is a big help in that country. problem with bears is they usually dont stop after the first miss. you were very lucky to get a good second shot. ive missed several fairly easy shots. there were no follow ups. you dont need any advise, but ill offer this anyway. next year use your own gun, and make sure your very comfortable with it. to me its like driving somebody elses truck.

Re: Bear Picking

Hey Cubby,

Congrats on your bear. On the entire length of the video I got your audio on the radio. "Their not shooting at my bear are they?" "No, it's from the other rock, that's a different bear" We chuckle everytime we hear it. I believe your bear and the one JUDD shot at were together in the morning and got bumped up from some bush hunters hunting the bottom. You should have seen the one bruin we saw at about 2500 yards. No problem seeing him, I'm sure he went at least 500+ lbs. You should post a photo of your dads giant. I'd like to have a photo for my scrap book too. Biggest damn buck I've ever seen come out of that hollow.

Re: Bear Picking

Typical terrain in the northeast. Lots of twigs and limbs. Not unreasonable that both shots could have encountered them...although both shots seemed to be high...who knows, better luck the next time.

Re: Bear Picking

That would be him. You ain't kidding about lucky, I'm not sure how many bears he has killed and he's only in his early 20's.
