Joe Want made a comment about what is called a "Texas Heart Shot" in thick cover on a wounded bear. This triggered the idea for a thread on what it is "REALLY" like to go in and finish wounded bears in thick cover. So it is mid-winter, people need something to read. What are the factors (Clue: there are many) in going into thick cover to finish a wounded bear.......?
What's it really like....? What are the many mega-second flash decisions that you are eveluating.....? There is a constant feed of data, the wind velocity & direction, what are the birds doing, smells, sounds (lots of sounds/or silence), movement, leaves moving, blood (What color, foamy or deep red). There is a constant stream of data. let's talk about that.
