Yeah I know PA bear hunting definitly isn't a sure thing.

I do agree I'm very very lucky to have Kevin as a huntin buddy...he has taught me more then I can even begin to say. Plus he builds one he!! of a gun!

The problem was not the gun me and kevin shoot each others guns all year long...we are very familiar with each others stuff.....guns and equipment. Our hunting together just doesn't start in deer/bear season...we hunt all spring and summer together

Re: Bear Picking

randy, i cant believe he got that bear done this soon. are you sure he had the hide tanned? is that your dads buck? i didnt see it with the hide on. i suppose that will be done also in a few more weeks at this rate.

Re: Bear Picking

Ouch. Well, it was a hell of a try at that distance with all that brush. Doubt too many people wouldve been able to pull off that shot in that brush. great effort! nice camera work too. cool video. good luck next time. Ive got a feeling the bear on the recieving end of your next shot wont have a clue what hit him.LIGHTS OUT. pent up vengance can be a good thing for motivation. good luck
