.......just had my computer 'reformatted'. Is that the word? Now my scanner isn't working because I can't find the disc to download the program again and I still have to find out what else isn't working. I've got one week left for the hunt then hopefully I'll have some time to sort things out and get some pics up and running. I have a real good pic of a large male that shows all kinds of scars,. beat up ears like on old tomcat. Thats one I'd like to get you guys to see.

Gotta try this picture thing. This one is a bruiser as you can tell from the overall length, no neck and wide fromt paws.

Nice looking bear! I like that angle. Is it a trail cam or were you in the tree?

The pics are captures taken from a video camera that one of my hunters used from a treestand. Here's one of the same critter. You think he knows the hunter is there?

Here's one more for the not too squeamish. Not sure of the quality but it shows the bears reaction at time of impact.

The first two pics are of a bear that the hunter let pass because he wasn't satisfied with any shot given. That bear likely weighed in the 400 lb range.
The bottom pic is a bear taken by the guys son the day prior with archery. He was on the smallish side, about 160 but the kids first bear and he was more than happy with it.
