The first two pics are the same as jpg16, he is only a year old, definately not a shooter in my eyes till he gets a few years older, but old tubby and the bear on jpg13 would get smoked, you have to figure these critters just came out of hibernation a few months ago and have no fat stored yet. I'll post more pics as i get them and you will notice the size differance.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
