    Got this Brown near the coast. Got bit by the tide monster trying to get him out and had plenty of time to skin him out waiting for the tide to float our ride...
    Oh and my 4 years is almost up.


    I was sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the tide roll away... We all know I can't sing, even watching it I still let the water go out from under it.

    Default Small black bear

    Small blackie I encountered while camping... while drinking some coffee, after waking up in the morning, I was going to pet this thing, thinking it was the neighbors Black Lab, I was no more than 4 feet from this guy, but very friendly, he even let me go in the tent to retrieve my camera.

    just tanned, that way if i ever decide to grow up and settle down, build a house...all that good stuff, then i can either rug it or mount it, depending on funds and all...thats a big if. it looks sharp draped over a couch for now. marilyn monroe blond...a little bear, but i couldnt get over the color when i spotted that thing, and i was out for blood. i was by myself (which i love) and i had an awsome opportunity,(guides dont get to hunt too much for themselves) so after client got flown out, contract was up and i went hunting. it was my first personal bear, and a cool stalk. shot at seventy or so yards in the mouth of a canyon with my favorite guide gun w/ iron sights.
