I went to cohutta this weekend and shot my first bear. it was 146lbs field dressed so not huge but plenty to drag. we hunted saturday and it started raining exactly when i got to my stand. on sunday we got there late and i got turned around going to my stand and it was 8:00 when i found it. i climbed up the tree, ate me a candy bar and drank some water and put up my bag and it was 8:15 i sat there for 5min and the bear walked out and i shot it. when we first walked up on it, it was laying in a small ditch and it looked real small and im thinking i asked my friend if it was more than 75lbs and he didnt say anything and i got real worried, i thought i just pulled a Ron and shot a little bear. but it ended up getting up and walking alittle ways and we could tell it was bigger before it went down, so i was relieved . the bear went down next to the road we came in on so that was helpful, but we still had two miles back to the truck that were burtal. it took us until 12:20 to get it out.

You don't need to see his mug in the picture....just kidding
Hey bud awesome job....thanks for not telling me you shot that joker. You need to leave the head on the rug. It might cost a little more but something you would probably like better in the long run. Nice job!!
