One came running full bore in when my hunting buddy was calling. I picked him up in the woods about 100 yards away. Now if he goes to his left he is mine, but of course he went to the right and and came down the fence line towards me.
He was protected by trees until he got right up on me and then did a beeline in the opposite direction. He was moving to fast for me to get a shot at him.
Still, it had my heart beating. My hunting buddy and his son saw a couple earlier but they too did not present a clean shot.
We walked miles and miles through the snow today.
Bought some new cabelas rubber boots with 2000 grams thinsulate in them and they kept my feet nice and warm.
Maybe next time will be better. Good news is I didn't have skin anything today
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
