    Default FOB'd Black Bear, First bear

    Figured I would post this in the bowhunting section too.

    Well on wed. night, about 1230am, I shot my first black bear a boar, with my

    bow. What a thrill! It started off a slow night, we had a small 3 foot bear that

    provided so many great shot opportunites, would of made a great throwdown

    rug for my bedroom But I waited and hear a few bears coming, at first I

    thought it was a sow and a cub. But I seen the big bear chase off the smaller

    bear that was following it. I knew than that it wasn't a cub, he was chasing it

    away from the bait. The big bear walked in very cautiously, I made sure to

    not make a noise at all. Just when I thought he was about to leave, he

    provided a great shot oppotunity for a few seconds, I took the shot, got him

    thru both lungs, he ran 30 yards, made a death moan that I will never forget

    and expired. Awesome! Waited until 3 am, as my dad wanted to take a bear

    too, but nothing else came. Got back to truck, and rested for a few hours and

    recovered the bear. I brought him over to Archers Den show him off a little bit

    and then went my buddy's shop, Action Anatomy Taxidermy, Bob Mardis, he

    helped me out alot. We skinned him out at his house and am now getting him

    made into a rug. Don't got the measurments but I should have the official

    measurements soon from Bob. This bear was took in unit 16A. Thanks to FOB's

    , Bob Mardis/Action Anatomy Taxidermy, Archers Den, Baitem907 scent balls,

    and pure luck I was able to get this awesome bear.

    Thanks for the compliments fellas! I definitely enjoy the time hunting with my dad, we been hunting together since I was a little boy. I am hoping to get another bear, re-baited my site yesterday, put out a new scent ball and sweet stuff. Had to shoot at a little blackie to scare him off as we were baiting and putting up another stand. The lil guy wasn't even afraid of my gun shot! He stayed around about 20 yards away until we left and went right to our bait as we left
