got it done today. My 1st bear. Saw a sow with 3 cubs. An hour later this boar presented a shot. I been after em real hard with a bow but the cooler temps and rifle made for a lil easier hunt. After my buddy kilt a 200# hog yesterday morning that we drug out whole we decided packin this guy out was the only way to go. We've had an amazing 2 days in the mountains. His 1st hog. My 1st bear. We've been deer & turkey hunting together for 25 years but this has been 1 of our most memorable hunts. After hearing the shot, forum member Deadend came outta nowhere to lend a hand. Super nice guy. Offered his meat bags, gloves, and even help toting. If anyone has a name & # of someone that tans bear hides please let me know!
