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.
