Hey boys, it's been a while, but I got that Spring itch... (her parents were hippies and she had crabs) :eek:

Been out chasin' furballs with my sticks n string. Had a good stalk on a 300+ lb blackie last night, but it busted me at 30 yards and spooked like a whitetail. (tested my lucky undies...) Got to watch a grizz family last night for 10 min., to boot...:D

? Where do you aim with a gun on a big bear??? Shoulders, lungs, head??? I wouldnt want to track a big wounded bruin...

Good work on your bruin, Boss. Sounds like you boys are gearin' up for a redneck jamboree in Canada have a goodun...

You're about the tenth basterd that comes back after being gone forever, MAKEING me say welcome back and all that crap. Were the hell you've been ? I searched 6 different states and even put your Ugly A$$ mug on a milk carton, Of course I shot at the milk jug then ;)

HAHA !! HEY Welcome back ya turd !!! COOL looking bear !!! They suck chasing them with a string and stick. I like the Big bang stick... Looks like you're still kicking butt and taking names on the trips though, And providing Awsome pics like usual !!!!

Next time, don't be a stranger.. 'k ?!!? :D

Thanks guys. Moosie - hahaa, milk carton...hey, my buddy just got a new lawn mower for his field & I thought of you Idaho boys...it's not a John Deere...but it's a nanny goat...you can borrow it if you get tired of yer sheep :D ...sounds like you had a good spring...Cool photos of that bear!

I went out again last night... Drove 45 min. to up towards a 7000 ft peak, where the snow on the summit is only a week old. I travelled back and forth glassing two grassy slopes that are just greening up in the drainage below. The big blackie was just coming out when I spotted him from about 200 yards. I started to close the gap, but the wind was swirly and he was nervous and went back into the dark cedar forest. I figured he'd be back and cirlcled around down wind.

When I got to about 50 yards, I spotted him on the edge up a ways from where he went in...he was staring directly at me...busted...I froze in full camo, partially shielded by shrubs, hoping I could fool him like most whitetails...he glared for about a minute and raised his snout to confirm his blurry suspicion...the wind shifted but I was still safe...then he gave that telltale headturn and pause where most bears bolt...but this king of the forest didnt run, but sauntered into the darkness knowing something wasnt right.

I figured he wasn't too spooked and would eventually be back for his favorite saladbar...I nestled into a good spot in the bushes that would give me a 30 yard shot if he came back...I tested my lucky undies as I raised my binocs and scanned the black pockets on the forest edge 40 yards away...whoa...back... :eek: that big black pocket is staring back...this time I knew I was fully busted...he was sitting facing me - no shot...I looked into his brown eyes...no neck joe, with a big, black round, dinner plate of a head wrinkling on to his chest...he slowly turned and disappeared...
