Congrats to the succesfull hunters, and best wishes to those still trying. My season may be to busy to hunt, but I like hearing about the success of others.

Let's see them pictures!

I hang my hat in Pittston and sit in a tree in north east carry, this was my sons first hunt on the first day he got his bear, I hope this is the first of many hunts together. thanks for the advise on skinning. I ordered a skinning video from mckenzies should be in today...
