He actually surprised me. I had pics of him ripping my camera off the tree but all the pics were at 6:30 pm. I got him with my bow at 10 yards at 8:45 am. He ran roughly 70 yards before biting the dust. He was approximately 300lbs according to the taxidermist and the taxidermist also said his skull will measure close to 18" which will qualify for the pope & young record book.

Bad. Ass. You are one courageous dude. Hats off.



I second that.   I would think twice before taking a shot with a bow.  But I generally hunt from the ground

Back on the 17th of October, a decent sized bruin gave me a good shot. They seem to love the creek bed on the private property I hunt in the West Cameron. An area I've hunted for years. This is my 3rd from this particular drainage.

      Hi: I live in the Adirondacks in the village of Bloomingdale, located in Essex County.  I have been hunting for over 40 years, am  a very active 65, married since 1972, retired from the Air Force and love to hunt.  I am a certified New York State Hunter Educator and would like to meet a similar experienced hunter with whom I can partner with.  
      Usually you don't see this type of topic, but, hey, it does not mean it will not work.  Just maybe there is someone out there with a similar need.  Here are some of my preferences:  I prefer tracking deer, but on occasion will sit early and late in the day. If you followed Larry Benoit and his sons, that is how I like to hunt.  I really enjoy the hunt, the shot is secondary.  I like hunting small game as rabbits, grouse, and pheasant.  I used to have a Brittany that was an excellent dog, but now I have no dogs.  I respect all game laws and will hunt all day in areas far off the beaten path.  Shooting a deer is not the most important result in my hunts, the enjoyment and quality of the hunt is what matters to me.  Why am I looking for a partner?  Going alone can be dangerous especially if you get hurt or need help. Then there is always the work after getting a deer.  Two people make the job so much easier. I would prefer someone that has a similar past history and lives no more than a 60 mile radius from me.  If most of my preferences interest you, send me a message.  Thanks for reading and if you have any questions, just send them.  You never know.

      yea that's a big black bear! lol Now imagine being in the woods in early season with a bow and arrow.  Heavy brush surrounding you while you are miles up and around a mountain in a huge park that is infamous for bear hunting.  All the sudden the woods start to turn on you as a six sense kicks in and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.  You feel a shiver of sorts run through your body as you suddenly realize the feeling is that your being watched.  At that moment everything you have learned in life becomes useless as you are faced with a new threat.  A threat you openly engaged and planned for.  You have entered the bears home now this is no longer your back yard and no cell phone service to call for help due to the iron deposits in the mountains!  Its at that point you test yourself on weather to move forward trusting yourself and your gear and the time and effort you put in to training with it.  Or you turn around and head back.  First time I came across fresh bear shit It scared the hell out of me.  Then when I found three piles of it right next to each other I decided to set up a tree stand lol  I hope to god that I get to harvest one in my lifetime.  To bag a 750+ pound black bear is an instant lifetime award and a place in the record books.  Taking one ethically is enough to have you shaking in fear before the shot.  Looks like he was using a slug gun or shotgun with a slug in it.  Enough to do the job at close range.  Remember black bears charge but rarely attack.  Shooting one through the scope of a high caliber rifle let alone a bow at 35mph is no easy task!  But survive and you have personally pitted yourself amongst the men who hunt and kill the apex predator..THE BEAR!!   I would have him stuffed standing on two feet and put him next to a rocking chair in my living room.  As the years go by we would share many stories as I would routinely have coffee in the morning and a glass of skotch in the evening time together.  As I grew older I hope to die next to such an amazing animal in that old chair next to that old bear lol lolololol  GET SOME!

      Hey guys I am going on my first bear hunt in 3A next weekend to wrap up the early season.  I was wondering if you guys had any tips for a newbie bear hunter!  I am hunting with a weatherby vanguard series 2 in 30-06 with a Winchester ballistic silver tip 150g round.  I picked up a screech call and my friend I am hunting with is bringing vanilla caramel extract in the legal limit allowed.  We are hunting a lake surrounded by 3000ft peaks and I am planning on hunting the peaks for the most part.  Any advice you guys have would be greatly appreciated.  There are a ton of streams that run down into the lake so we were thinking of following them up the mountain.  Thanks for taking the time I will update the post with any pics if we bag one!
