Default first bear DIY

Ok so here's my first bear. Its not going to break any records except my own. I shot mine on the last evening hunt so waiting any longer wasn't an option. I learned alot and will be doing this every yr from now on.
I had some other bears hitting the sight and really wanted to lay my eye's on a cinnamon that was coming in. We also got a pic of a REALLY good boar not to far away that never hit the barrels. There's always next yr

congrats on a nice bear,theres alot to learn doing this baiting,its not as easy as it seems.

That boar is nice,it looks to be about the same size as mine this year.I also waited till the last day,last hour to get a shot.I thought I was not going to get one this year.

Congrats on a nice bear, with a bow none the less, well done, I know what you mean about wanting to do it every year, it is very addictive, I shot one 6 years ago, and I want to go again myself.

Congrats. It's nice to get that first one under your belt. Just think that cinnamon will only be bigger next year.

Default First Bear

Your bear is a trophy!!!!! I took mine in 1989 with bow for the first time. Remember it's not the size that counts it's how you mount it
LOL

Congrats
