Re: Pa black bear

Havent heard from the State college friend guess hes SOL. Heard from Fayette County Fred today. He went into the Laurel with his scope covers closed and his Leupold set on 12 power. Jumped a bear at 8 yards. Needless to say it was a cluster ****. I offered my guide service for next year hahahahah. Ive killed two and dont care to kill anymore unless its a Grizz. Anybody tagged out? Pics?

    Nope. Didn't see any after the first day. Still was a lot of hunters on the mountain though. A lot less shooting after Saturday too even though the numbers were not much lower plus there was snow on the ground. I cut a small track on Monday, didn't pursue.
    My scope never comes off the lowest setting until I see what I want to shoot. Lesson learned for your friend I figure.

    I can point him in the right direction. Dunbar mountains from the town of Dunbar back to Ohiopyle. And behind the Summit Inn hotel off RT 40. Large tracts of state owned land open to the public.
