jfrench, He has had a busy week. Last Sunday his wife (my daughter) went into labor. 40 Mile trip to the hospital was too far. She gave birth with her husbands assistance in the front seat of the pick-up truck 12 miles from the hospital.
After the baby was born their 3-year old (from the back seat) said "Good job Dad!"
Which would you choose, your wife giving birth in your truck or being charged by a sow Black Bear "protecting" her cubs?
They are good kids. Good bear guides too. There is a TV crew up here this weekend filming a hunt with them. "Knockout Hunting Adventures." They were on that show last year too. ( Sorry about the bragging, Grandfather stuff ya know)
Blackbear.....I didn't get drawn this year either and there were no secondary licenses available in my zone. I just posted two sets of pictures from my camera that was at my site from last year where a friend hunted this year.......there's always next year, should the Lord tarry.....
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
