No. My friend killed one about 200 yds away from me on opening day in Pa though. We had an agreement that if either one of us got one the other would help get it out. Season was over for us around 9am. Looks like I'm going to do the Idaho hunt after all in the spring. So....we'll see.
Whats up Psycho, Stevo tells me that we'll be hunting together this year in tenn. I'm his friend that killed the bear in PA with him last year, and I'm really looking foward to hunting with hounds. (first time w/ hounds)
steve that's fine may need to ride seperate trucks but i don't mind becides you'll be working dogs yourself from some sign i saw this past december i'll be introduceing you guys to some new country this season.saw sign of a couple that'll go over 400 eaisy
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
