Last week I was thinking about picking up the station, but I put out a little bit more bait and got a couple hits. Last night I went out, it started to rain pretty hard and I didnt know how much bears would move much in the rain. I also was not keen on losing a bear due to rained out blood trail. I had never shot a bear with a bow and friends tell me their hair can clot an arrow wound pretty quickly so you lose blood trail on a good day. I was about to pack it up when a bear came in and started to chow without hesitation. It was a decent bear so I took the shot. It went about 25-30 yards and passed. There was only one good spot of blood on the way to the dead bear. I guess what my friend had told me is true, at least in the case.
Glad I had practiced shooting with the bow from my roof to be sure I could make the shot from a stand.
