    Default First Bear- FINALLY!!!

    Finally got my first black bear on the 21st of June. Took him over bait in 16 B in the Brown Bear control area. There had been a Brownie hanging around intermitently, but this one showed up first. Field measure he's about 5 and half foot. The mosqitoes are definately thick out there they photo-bombed the crap out of the pictures...

    Congrats on the bear! Are you shooting a 1895? Browning or Winchester? Caliber?

    She's a Winchester- in the only acceptable 1895 caliber- .405 Win. I guess I shouldn't of read those Teddy Roosevelt stories...

    Congrats on the bear. Glad you survived the skeeters, I have been trying to get away from work long enough to do some calling for bear up here.
