1st MI Black Bear

Hi All,
I'm new to the forum and just wanted everyone to know I got my first Northern MI Black Bear on 9/23 at 7:30 in the evening. Not a monster (200lb sow) but a trophy to me. Best part of the trip was being able to hunt with my Father and my best friend. Hunted Northern MI (Red Oak) area over bait on private property. Getting a shoulder mount.

Rifle: Remington 700 - 30-06 w/220gr core-lokts
Distance: 35yrds
Bait: Hamburger & hotdog buns, dog food & sugar coated Fruit Loops all covered in chocolate sauce. Sprayed vanilla extract around for scent.
I was enticed (except for the dog food) to dig in myself.

Here's the pic ( funny how a 200lb bear looks so small next to a 400lb human )
