    Last nights big one

    That is a beautiful bear, and big!!!.I imagine that was a lot of fun getting him out of the woods.I shot one about 200lbs down by Sebec Lake and it was hell trying to drag him to the point we could hook onto it with a winch off the 4 wheeler.I hope he fell close to a trail for you. :D:D Mike
