Elkhunter...yep, plan to hang around a bit if you guys will let me...my real name is Russel E. Taylor.......NOT!
I'll try to add some text here soon- That little brown phase bear was pretty exciting...nothig like hitting a bear in the back of the head with you arrow to really change his attitude haha! But what the Hoyt can start the Super Blackhawk usually can finish
Elkhunter by the way...was wondering if you get so. of the Bondurant area much? We used to hunt up in the Kilgore Basin but I haven't been back for years- heard that are was hit pretty good by fire awhile back??
Any comments would be appreciated!
Ya know in all the years I've been hunting (27+/-) I've seen a lot of bears go up trees, or in trees. This was the first one I ever saw come down and as a former lineman myself...................... H-O-L-L-Y S-H-I-T are they fast!!!! My first arrow kinda found where he WAS, my second where he IS, and two shots later from my .44 ended the mess.
Gained a new respect for those critters that day...and he was a little bear!
Russel Taylor (LOL) I mean MarvB, I never get down that way. Don't mean that I wouldn't though. It was hit with fire and if you would like I can stop by F&G and the FS to get specifics for you. If you are up this way again let me know. I like thate little story on the little beare also.
Here's a bear that was killed by a buddy of mine while we were hunting in Manitoba last year. He killed it the first night of the hunt. It's basically a fantasy come true, perfect blonde. The skull measured 20 5/16" if I remember right.
