Thread: Bear down

  1. #1

    Default Bear down

    Well I got my bear last nite, wasnt in the stand more that 5 minuites when I looked over at my dad and this bruiser was standing right under his stand. Dad was putting on face paint and didnt even know it was there. Its amazing to me how quiet those things can sneak in on you. He walked straight to the bait pile and presented me with a great broad side shot. I let the goldtip and G5 striker go and smoked him. The bear ran 20-25 yrds and piled up.
    Would like to thank Jess at baitem907 for the sweet smells I know helped bring the bears in. Action has really heated up this week, I have another bear close to this guys size and 2 4.5 to 5fters still workin the bait. Will post a before and after picture.

    Thumbs up

    Great pic, Geoff! Very happy you scored!

    I was contemplating whether or not to make a midnight run tonight and your thread did it...

    I'm going.

    Thanks,

    That is one short successful hunt. To get a bear with a bow and saving your Dad's life will be remembered for a long time. Congrats!

    The before and after pics are pretty cool also.

    Thanks for posting.

    Sorry if I made it sound more dramatic than it was, I didnt save dads life, it was just standing under his tree stand and I was in mine. We had just gotten into our stands 2 minuites when the bear appeared under dads stand. He wasnt in any danger. But it was very shocking to look up and see it there without hearing it sneak in at all. The bummer is dad thought he had the camera recording when i took my shot but he forgot to hit record. It all happened so fast.
