lbh, you have never felt a rush like you will when you see a bear. trust me when I say, its not that scary. especially if you're in a treestand. best advice I can give you is this. carry a stick or two. if need be, snap them and the bear WILL take off. this will give you the time to get down and get out if necessary. and posted these before, but this is what you have to look forward to. only hopefully, bigger.
let the rush begin.
