Folk seem to have differnet ideas about the follow-up procedure, after the smoke clears and the fur has run away.
On a B Bear I have run in, cautiously, to keep a bearing on where the critter is heading. Have heard of guides doing the same thing for Gbear, after a solid hit, to aid the tracking. Seems to push them, to die faster ?
This issue comes about after hearing about a couple of hunters that had to follow a loooong blod trail, only to loose it and consiquently, the bear too.
So, wait 20 minutes, or rush things after the shot ?
edit - realized this is my first post. Have lurked for awhile though. you guys are good info and entertainment.
