    Not going this year but this is definately on my to do list either next year or the year after. I've been fortunate enough to go hunting and fishing all over the U.S. I've done almost everything I've set out to do except bear hunting. That is definately next on my list.

    Please keep us posted on how it went. When I get ready to go I'm definately going to post some questions for ya'll.

    Good luck and safe hunting....

    just remember when a bear attacks, you dont have to be the fastest, you just cant be last!

    Hot dang, that's a nice bruin! Maybe one of these days I'll go on a bear hunt somewhere. Don't have to worry about stumbling across them around here. :lol:

    WOW Mike ,thats a big bear!!! You must've hit em in the nose..:lol: j/j.

    Here several weeks ago when the cold was really setting in, the bears were everywhere. My daughters school was on lock down. Seems the bear was interested in the crap apple trees they had on campus:tounge_out: officials came and ran the bear back in the mountain. A few more have been spotted here and there but hadnt heard of any being around in a while.

    Thanks for posting again and of course..keep the pictures coming. Much appreciated :wink:

    My cousin lives in Penn. and last year her neighbor had a bear that weighed 700+ move in under their house for the winter. The game warden drugged it and they carried it off. I used to raise bear dogs,(Blueticks), but I don't shoot bears except with a camera.

    I guess I could say I bear hunt when I deer hunt, because in WV the bow seasons run together. I always buy a bear stamp, just in case I see one. I don't have any suggestions, because I havn't got one yet.
