Let a really good bear go today..............

Hey Guys,
Spotted a really good bear this morning at 8 AM. Stalked within 87 yards & watched him for about 10 minutes. Beautiful reddish-brown color. He was all of 6 feet and probably more. Let him go because I know there are bigger bears in the area and I have a freezer full of bear steaks from my Idaho bear & my cousins Idaho bear that I helped backpack out. Don't get no better than that on a Sunday morning in the mountains.

    You'll never get a giant if you're not willing to pass on "dinks". Not that a 6 footer is a dink, but it sounds like there are bigger out there.

    Good job. I would have a hard time passing a 6' cinnamon too.

    Hey brentc,
    Thank you for the reply. I love bear hunting more than anything. There is so much more to the hunt than the kill. When you can sit & watch a bear that is not on a bait or in a tree with dogs it is so fascinating. You are in their world. I need to get a good camera for the ones I let go.
    Thanks, Kirk

    Man I wish I live in country were you could observe bear like that!! I may see two a year even with significant time in bear sign it hard to put it all together if you can't sit and watch them. Found a sow and three cubs last weekend and felt dang good, there is at least sign of one bear without cubs so maybe fall season I guess.
