    Maybe he wasn’t hunting. Maybe the bear was eating his bees at night. Then legal. Or maybe he just meant after supper.

    Anyway I hope you found it by now.

    I looked all mourning from 5:30 am to 11:00 am......unfortunately from the last blood spot i spotted last night i didnt find more..... must of walked 3-5 km in each direction from the last blood.....nothing he vanished as did the blood trail that was actually quite decent at first.....things like this suck for a hunter and as for the animal but part of hunting big game is bad shot placement sometimes :/. Hit him low in intestines is my guess

    Sounds like you put in a good effort on the follow up. Learn from the experience and move on. We've all been there at some time or another.

    Use a trail cam to see if it comes back.

    Awe that sucks..
    I agree with put a trail cam up see if he comes back. I had a shoot through mesh incident. I was 100% sure I got a good hit on a young buck followed his tracks in the snow with little blood to no blood. Turned up back on cam a week later with no visible injuries.
