Default My southern bear

A lot if yall weren't around back in the day so I thought I'd share. I'm now looking for a still hunt bear but this was one of the best hunts in my life.

Great story! Dogging bears isn't for the faint hearted.

That is awesome. SC does a good job managing that hunt. I live just across the state line in NC from Oconee County. Bear hunted with dogs for 20+ years and there is nothing like it. I hope to get back to it when the youngins get a little bigger and I can take the time to do it right again. I miss it bad and reading that story didn't help!

Thanks for sharing. Great story and an absolutely huge bear! I have never dog hunted, but it sounds intense.

I miss that , especially when I feel those first few crisp October mornings, i can almost smell hounds and can almost feel them tugging on the lead wrapped around my hand, I can almost feel the weight of my backpack with the days ration of water and potted meat and crackers, and the strap of my 94 Winchester wrapped around my neck. I can almost hear the roar of the dogs when you cross over a top and hear them treed or bayed in the next holler. Dang I miss that!!!!
When I'm up in the high gap, I hear ole Tom break the silence in the next holler, I always ask myself, what would Cliff do.
