1.) How far away is a reasonable distance to be in a ground stand? I set my barrel up at the bottom of a fairly steep valley and I'm looking at a large tree that has fallen over about 50 yards uphill that would give a nice shooting rest and offer a great view of any bears coming in or out. I know they wont be coming from the side where I'm at because it's closer to the road. What do you guys think? Anyone else use an uphill ground blind?
2.) If you do get a bear, is your success instantly over? Is it possible to clean up and have bears continue coming back so a friend can get a bear?
