my bear hunt

Here it is after 3 years of drought i finally did it.

I start baiting last week , i used all hotm00n's baiting and luring tricks, nothing on the first day but bingo on the second, 3 bears were hitting my bait site but all at night so i used the dummy trick for 2 straight nights and that took care of the problem.
sunday i went back there and slept in my camper that night, i spent monday morning in camper trying to control my shiver, i was so nervous and couldn't eat a thing.
Monday afternoon i put all my hunting gear on including my rubber boot to keep the odour to it's minimum just as what hotm00n recommended and walked to my stand with 2 things in my hands, a book to kill the time while there and a gun to kill what been driving me crazy for the last 3 years, soon i got there i sprayed the area with anise oil and liquid smoke, i did the gel can honey burn and went up to my stand.
the whole area was smelling good because of the honey burn, i spent my afternoon reading the book and sometime praying and watching the honey smoke fly in the air.
6 o'clock i heard something behind me, ok don't move i said to myself, the sound was coming from behind my right shoulder, oh god what should i do ? i tried so hard not to turn and look, few minutes later i see a nice looking black bear walking toward the barrel, oh cra....... my hands are sweating and i could hear my heart pounding ..... i am not sure how big my eyes were at the moment, probably the size of a dinner plate ?
The bear took it's time to reach the barrel, as if it was enjoying the pain i was suffering from watching my first sight of bear walking toward the target, then the bear stopped underneath the honey burn can and stood up on hind legs trying to reach the can but couldn't.
The bear moved slowly toward the barrel and grabbed a big chunk of meat and crouched on it's belly and start feeding, he gave me a perfect shot and i took it without hesitation .
I looked back and saw the bear run for few yards and buckle and then hit the ground hard . I watched all this in disbelieve ! Oh my god I just shot my first bear.
I don't know how big this bear is, i don't really care to know the size , all i know is a male prolly in the 200 pounds .

Hotm00n man i thank you for this, i don't know how to thank you man, after 3 years of baiting i finally did it, and i thank you for it, i just cannot believe this, i am still in shock !every time i look at this bear i will think of all your help.
I also would like to thank biggamehunt.net for their awesome website and for letting us use biggamehunt.net forum and site to make our dreams come true, THANK YOU GUYS !

I will post pictures soon i finish packing , i just couldn't wait to share this hunt with you guys .
