    Default Blackie down!

    Well this year I wasn't able to get out and hunt much at my stand as I usually do. I

    actually had to let it sit a week-half, almost 2 weeks without baiting. I was surprised

    when I finally checked my cam that I had a nice size bear hitting it(for my area), on May 27.



    I finally went in to re-bait on June 1. The next night we headed out(my first time hunting my stand this

    year) and got in stand about 430pm. Had a small bear appear and than disappear into the brush. Than sat

    for another few hours watching squirrels and shrews eat my bait(almost got an arrow in a squirrel lol). As

    luck would have it, my first night even hunting my bait site, the nice bear from my trail cam pics appeared.

    He cautiously approached, staying behind the brush and teasing me for a good 20-30 minutes. I did notice

    that he was limping in someway. Turns out he had been hit by a car or some vehicle, and broke leg in two

    right at the knee. He finally came out of the brush and got in my shooting lane, still not providing a good

    bow shot. He than turned broadside and I let a 440gr Easton FMJ with Rage broadhead fly from my K&K

    Vengeance bow, double lunging him. He went 10 or so yards and gave out a death moan. It was an

    awesome hunt, this is my 3rd year baiting and 3rd black bear I've taken with a bow. I love it. Anyways I did

    get this hunt on camera so you can see for yourself. I'd like to give a thanks to Jess at Bait Em 907, this is

    proof that her products works great! The bear ended being about 6', I have yet to measure the skull as I am

    still wondering what to do with the hide(thinking a shoulder mount) anyways...Thanks for looking! Video is

    below, nothing fancy for sure but is one of my first times filming my bear hunt.

    Thanks everyone! Its crazy that this old bear was able to live for so long on three legs. He was definitely eating good as he had a lot of fat on him, tough animals!

    Great shot! Nice bear too. Nice bow too haha! I've been itchin to try one of those K&K's but with the limited amount they're making and the lack of dealers i'm sure it'll be a while before i get the chance. How do you like it? Good choice of accessories too, i also use a sword sight and tightspot and FMJ's. Just sent an FMJ through a nice bear last week actually. Not quite as big as yours but she's gonna be tasty, thats for sure. Congrats on that bear!

    Thanks!
    The bow is SWEET! Smooth, no hand shock, quiet, and fast(332fps IBO arrow, 60# 28"dl), Kevin really hit a homerun with this bow. Definitely one of the top bows of the year in my opinion. If your ever in Anchorage area send me a message and I'll let ya shoot it. And ya gotta love FMJ's, boy do they hit hard.
