    Those are some good looking bucks. We had a day I would consider just about perfect on Saturday, high of about 37, lows in the mid 20s and I saw one doe.

    A 400 hundred pound bear was seen less than two miles from where we hunt. I personally have no desire to kill one, but a friend with a farm nearby lost a sheep last week, probably to a bear. I might have to consider it now if I see one.

    thats a big bear steve! we have had the odd one around the house and i wouldnt hesitate to get rid of them, as there are kids playing in the woods and if there is a cub around. you never know what could happen :sick:


    yes we do spliter but they dont give out many tags in our region?
    we were hunting calves a few weeks ago and me and a buddy were taking a break at the bikes when a bull walked out to us :cheese: very cool to watch but no tags...
    the same guy had a cow and calf walk out to him last week during the deer hunt :p
