    Great repoart!

    That is the reason I won't Bear hunt with my crossbow on the ground. Tree-stand only for me....It would not end well for me if bear decided to take a run at me... lol

    Thanks for sharing. Even for a small bear - that's closer than I'd like.

    Congrats Joe on a fine eating bear.

    You must be a man with steel balls as I will be sh..ting my pants if a not so friendly dog within 6 feet of me let alone a bear lol.

    I would love to experience bear hunting from a ground blind only did that once but didn't see any bear and all the bears I have been harvested over the years were from a treestand pretty sure it will be an awesome experience.

    always love following along, thanks for sharing
    Well the driveway is 1.6 km long and it's almost a full time job to keep the bush pushed back and proactively cut what i think are problem trees. Got 4 or 5 mother f'n big oaks that need to come down. Already have about 7 or 8 cut and stacked bush cords but figure i gotta keep adding more than i burn every year so that by the time i hit 70 i'll have enough for the rest of my life. Fortunately i have a lean to that will fit about 12 bush cords. Those oaks though are monsters and i gotta float my excavator up once i can get it off the job it is on now. No way i want to drop those oaks without some serious hydraulics around to deal with any issues that might arise.

    First year we owned the place we headed up for the first time in the winter and with a snowmobile it took us 8 hours to get down the driveway due to all the trees that came down in an ice storm. Been slowly but steadily trying to get ahead of things and have not had an issue like that since.

    The wilderness is not a stadium where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, it is the cathedral where I worship.

    It was enough to get my old ticker humming. Same site last year i watched the biggest bear i have ever seen for 32 minutes but he never gave me shot. I was vibrating than too. Rare pleasure to get that "buck fever" adrenaline rush and this particular bait site has delivered 2 years in row now.

    For sure Joe!

    It would be my honor to meet and chat with you.

    Knowing you hunt from the same wmu (47) as me I could use some pointers how to bring in big bears.

    Wish you have a Happy Father's Day in advance!

    Cheers
