    Default Blew my shot on my first bear ahhh!

    Went out last night had a nice bear come in just before 1am went to grab my gun off the hook got in a fight with the sling ended up making too much noise bear turned stood up looked at me and ran off! Man I'm kicking myself in the butt today! I got to excited trying to rush things was the first time I have ever had a black bear come in to stand while I was there and blew it! On a second note I am a believer in honey burns did one at about 1:30 am and he came in at around 1:45 could of been by chance but I'll give credit to the burn it had it smelling good I had some blueberrys in with the honey and it smelled like homemade blueberry syrup I wanted some pancakes in the stand.
