I have never killed a black bear before. Last night one of my buddies shot one on his bait station and called me asking for my help retrieving it this morning. We found the bear. It looked to be about 150 pounds. While butchering it I had a chance and passed on 2 bears roughly the same size. We were almost done butchering that bear and seeing how little meat I was going to get I decided to pass on the others. My bear bait station just got its first hit on Friday. Was passing on those 2 bears in hopes of getting a realistic chance at something bigger on my bait station a good idea or should I shoot one that size if I see one again? Compared to his bear the 2 I passed on were probably about 4 and a half feet.
