    Default First Blood-Unit12

    Grinning and bearin it in Unit 12. My boy, age 11 made his first kill with 30-06 on June 1, my first archery kill June 2 and wife first archery kill June 4. Thank God for a hunter's moon. We've been packin and skinnin fools for the last week. My boar decided to go for a walk, so my photos weren't as good as I would of liked. We cleaned him up at about midnight.Thannes1.jpgTomtrophy.jpg

    Congrats those are some nice looking bears! I love that huge white V on your wifes bear. Did you pack the family up and head to Tetlin for two weeks of bear baiting or just running up there on the weekends?

    Thanks for the comments. I had some friends put me on to some potential spots. I've been back and forth since snowshoing the barrel in March. Unusual spring though, I didn't have any hits until last week of May, then it was 6-8 bears all at once. One of my friends with a bait five miles away didn't even get hit. This is my first year baiting. What a pile of work! But, I wouldn't of traded a minute. I'm hooked.
