Hey - really nice bear, Jay! Congratulations on taking a pretty color phase blackie.
I love the timber in the background. That looks like a really great place to hunt. I've driven through the beautiful state of Utah - from bottom to top on my way from Arizona to Montana - but never had time to stop and look. We even drove right past Bryce Canyon, not knowing that it was one of the most beautiful spots on earth to see!
Maybe we'll get to that another time.
Thanks again for sharing the picture of your beautiful bear.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
