Yeah!, even if you didn't get a bear, the memories would be priceless.  That's a story that would "bear" repeating year after year, at the hunting camp.   --099-780

I would have been freaking out --7-8-9  That bear is more comfortable on a ladder than my bro-in-law is.

"hey what are you doing down there" is not anywhere close to what this fat boy would have been saying...Geeze man how does someone stand that. And was this cat bear hunting. Looks like to me if he was he had a perfect opportunity to take him at 30 yards instead of 0.0025 yards.
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!
