Well it is a good story if you enjoy tripping over a bear every 10 yards or so in a 2 mile area of land I spotted 30 bears but I am sure I have counted 1 or 2 bears twice..In any event it is still an alarming number of Bears in a small area.
I basicaly sat is a small patch of brush for a while and watched the Bears come out one by one and sizing them up, Quite a few small bears came out in the 175-225 lbs range, Finaly I saw this good solid 300 lb Bear I figured it would be a perfect first bear so I started to move up on it closer and closer untill I closed the gap to 60ish yards. and after calming my nerves I took a text book shot hitting boath lungs and the heart.
And that was my first bear hunting experiance in short form.

My First Bear!

NICE BEAR!! thats a wicked story to go with it too. The same thing happened to me last weekend. I had just attempted a stalk on a bear and was walking back to my stand to retrieve my hat i had left there. I wasn't paying much attention as it was getting dark and it was hard to keep quite. i kept walking and before i knew it there was a bear laying in the feild 10 yards ahead of me. OOhh and did i mention this is using a bow. To cut the story short the bear never offered a clear shot at its vitals. It later heard me sneaking toward it and stood up for a split second and ran off. If i had only stayed in the stand it would have been a 6 yard shot . Brick Wall,) . Stalking a bear with a bow is a little more challenging and exciting. A rifle is too dont get me wrong.
CONGRATS!
