Paul they are sure fun to hunt.
I got back at my brother for laughing about my bear eating my tree stand.
We originally had 1 guide that droped me off and than took my brother to drop him off at his tree stand.
The guide knowing we had a very good chance of harvesting bears sent 2 different guides to pick my brother up and our original guide came to get me. This was a dark, I had about a 1/4 of a mile walk from the lake to my stand. I herd the guides boat a went to him and said I got one. He had another guide with him so we went to get my bear. I took us forever to carry him back to the boat, the trees are so thick and close together. Anyway we got back to the lodge and it was late. The other 2 guides and my brother where not back yet. After waiting till after mid-nite the outfitter decided to take off to find them. My brothers tree stand was over a hour away by boat. Half way there the outfitter found his 2 guides with out my brother, there motor had quit them. They finally got to my brother after 2 am. He had killed a bear also and was a nervous wreck by this point wondering why no one had come for him. Not being a smoker he didnt have any matchs or a lighter to build a fire. All you have is your bow and a knife, the wolfs and bears were thick and walking all around.
LOL he know carrys a bic lighter when he hunts....
