Thats exactly how I felt BullHunter. I was being cigilant and checking behind me frequently. Just happened to turn around that time and there she was. I was like "where did that thing come from without me noticing?!"
I realized after reading this again that I have been negligent in giving credit where credit is due. I always try and make a point to do that. In what little success I have hunting here in the hills, I owe a debt of gratitude to many, many of the forum members here. I began hunting public land here in the mtns about eight years ago. I caught the bear bug my first year, and tried unsuccessfully although I did see one during turkey season the following spring. The next summer I stumbled on this forum when researching bears for the approaching season. Since that time I joined, many, many of the members here have become my personal friends with which I hunt and fish with regularly. Many have taught me a tremendous amount about the mountain game in a very short period of time. Buckman, Tree Cutter, JBoggs, JYFishing, FM Bear, Ripplerider, whitetail freak, northgasportsman, JWilson, T-N-T, Joe Brandon, fishnbub, Killer Delete, and too many others to name. Y'all have bestowed so much knowledge on me and have become my personal friends, and you have enriched my hunting experience and my life greatly. I have shared some memorable victories and experiences with a lot of you. I could never adequately articulate my gratitude for you guys. I sincerely mean that.
