Well I might have to stick an arrow in my bear. Dang elk showed up in so many of my trail cam photos, I couldn't take it any more, bought an ether sex Archery tag so I can hunt bear & Elk. Worked 12 hours today, ran up the road and hiked my tree stand in before dark. I knew what tree and had set yardage markers 20,30, 40 last week. but we thought until yesterday afternoon that we were going to have to work Saturday & Monday so I had not wanted my stand in the woods for the 3 day weekend if I wasn't going to hunt it. ANYWAY Came trucking out of the brush with my stand on my back and started one heck of a nice bull that was grazing a few feet from my north 30 Yard marker. Couldn't do much, he caught me flatfooted, so I just kept walking, he ran about 20 yards, then high stepped another 20, then stood and watched me for a bit then walked off . . . so I hope I didn't spook him too much, once I knew he had walked off I circled back and hung the stand. Now for 3 whole hours sleep. .Elk season starts at sunrise Bear starts on 9/2 so if I can get an elk in the next 48 I'll go to ML for bear from the trail cam that is 20 yards from where I hung my stand, the tail end of a big elk and a good shot of a small bear.
