    wen't out last night at 4pm and sat out at my stand and at 6:45 a bear came out not the big ones in my pics but it was a keeper to me as this would be my first. so i waited awhile and at 7:05 i took the shot. The bear ran 15 yards and piled up. one down and hopefully i will get the big one next year and my dad still has a tag to fill. It weighed 160 lbs.

    AWESOME! Cant beat the experience of a first bear. Beautiful hair on it! Very exciting! Congratulations! What are you going to have done with the hide?
    What gun/bullet? where did you shoot him?

    shot him with a remington 700 cdl 30/06 with nosler 180 accubond right behind the shoulder tore up the lungs good. the shot was out of a tree stand and was around 25 yards. I dont no what im going to do with the hide i put quite a bit of holes in it skining it out but im going to get the skull done like yours.
