I think we should all post our pictures of animals for Ashley. I'll start,

Photo deleted. Ashley may not be one of us or understand why we do what we do but we will not offend her here. One more post like that and this will be locked!

I did not see the pic, but can't imagine a hunting photo bad enough to be removed. I don't agree with intentionally trying to offend someone, but remember, she came her. Are we catering to the anti's in "our house"?

Oregon Spring Bear

Was out turkey huntin' this morning. Was calling in some gobblers, but for some reason they wouldn't come down, they kept gobbling and gobbling, they wouldn't come. Me and my partner had to get to work, so we stood up, look up the hill/canyon, could see the gobblers, and then my partner said "Look, there's a bear" What do ya' know there was a big ol' black bear just down from them turkeys across from us on the other hill--no wonder. That bear was big! Thats the 2nd bear I've seen so far, the first was a cub--about 1 month ago.

I think we gotta' a cinamon bear!!! Was turkey hunting same spot, again, calling, and hear some cows down below, but then we heard a weird noise, my partner says, do you hear that? I said thats one wicked moo This time, my partner brought his 7mm, he ran to the truck, I had this call called "Calls M All" a multipurpose call, doing predator call, sat for about 15 minutes calling, we stood up about to leave, scoped everything last minute, then my partner says, hey is that just a dark spot or a bear, we stood their watching that spot for a few minutes, shrugged our shoulders and I looked one more time w/ binocs and shoot! There he was! Partner moved into position and shot him in the left shoulder, its front went down, picked itsellf back up, turned around, and down into the canyon. Looked but sun was about to go down--too dark. We're going to head back in the morn' and search for it. Maybe I'll post a pic for ya' guys.

Good luck on finding him. I had a coupld go down and bounce back up like that years ago. One was a bullet failure the other I found dead about 50 yds away. Recovered the first too. I've read a number of different reports where bears for some reason do that.
