Spent the weekend stalking deer that were to small to shoot, didn't see a bear until about 8:30 this morning.
Medium sized, about 275 lbs with long jet black fur, he was following his nose down a cannyon towards a camp site ( he planned on raiding it before the hunters got back )
I watched him for a few seconds and figured if I could get down into the cannyon in front of him I'd have a great shot. About that time the hunters returned and the bear blew out, right back up the cannyon into the thick timber.
Like Arnold says "I'll be back"
Well I had to pass a 500 yrd shot.. It was 6:30 and the sun was going down fast. I didnt think it was a good idea to close in for the shot and then spend 2-3 hrs taking care of a bear to get home at midnight. It was a pretty good looking bear, maybe 300 lbs ? So next weekend I will see if I can find it again. Hope everyone is having fun!
