I guess I'll just stay home this week cause you done cleaned out my secret spot. I thought you were crazy when you told me you were gonna hunt traditional gear. You proved me wrong again. See you in a few days , looking forward to camping, hunting and some fresh mountain air.

Thanks everyone , Sorry for delay on the story. I been busy back on the night shift job . I honestly dont have a great story. I just have found different areas that are known for bear to travel and i seen some sign where one had been crossing there. Havent seen much climbing or scat, but have been seeing tracks since the ground was so soft. I typically see a bear a day. I just try to work with the wind in my favor and catch one traveling in between food and water sources. I like to hunt over thick laurel and rhododendrum areas. And low swampy areas. I shot the bear from a tree stand at about 15yards. Me and another friend spot and stalked the hog , And both had taken shots that resulted in killing the hog , so i cant completely take full credit on it. But it was still awesome to be apart of taking it with my new black widow recurve.

He hunts the good spots when I'm not there, saves worst spots for when his Ky. "friends" come down. Glad we got to go on nature walks last week. Next year we might try to actually hunt something.

Hey now. I took you on the easy beginner hikes to help you Kentuckianites to slowly acclimate to the real bear country. Lol
