psycho ya better be ready to do some traveling cause the terrain is steep and rough. if ya can handle it we'll get you a good bear, this is a physcally demanding hunt that tests you, your equipment,and the hounds. it's a hunt that a lot of people will not even get through the first day of due to the extreme conditions.

No need to worry. Physically Im ready. Ill push myself a little harder in the weight room and get on the stationary bike a little more to get ready. The main thing I need to do is break in my boots. They are good and comfortable but still need to be broke in. They are hasmat boots. I never give up especially when after game.

I do have a question for you now that I think of it. How the H-E double hockey stick do you get the bears out of the woods. I plan on having a rug done so I dont want to cut it up too bad.

we'll bring the bear out whole it won't be torn up to much i've had several hunters make rugs out of their bear even had one guy full body mount a 524lb bear. just remind me when we get to skinning it that you want a rug.

no problem, skinning for a full body mount or rug just takes a little different method
