Sooooo after finding the trail cam said I should have sat monday evening,when i check it on tuesday afternoon, and being total jacked up, the little consults I had with freinds, calmed my adrenaline and I decide to wait till wenday to hunt cause i could not get to stand tuesday till about 6-630. SiO I had a long sleepless night and slow draging day at work. But 5 oclock came and off to the woods i went.

I decide to play it cool, I knew there was lots of bait in the barrel, so i just snuck in, retreived the trail cam, Took a page from icehole john and spryaed some liquid smoke all around, I dont usually do that but for instances like this,i wanted him to come in earlier than the 740 range he currentl held. I got siuated into stand, viewd the pics from tuesday and thankfully I made the right choice in backing off on tuesday, cause he came in at 430, then 730 abouts. to small of a window to thread the needle, could have easily bumped him sneaking to stand........

so I climbed  into stand, and making more noise than I wanted to of course, like a boar in a china shop no less. I got settled in. I culd catch a whiff of liqud smoke from time to time. it was working its magic the wind was perfect, coming outa the south and blowing directly to the direct he was coming from. I set the go pro to record, and waited. sent  off a few pics to arch and scoot, who told me to quit f-n  around and kill it, while arch decide to keep me distracted fro the task at hand, which i caught onto right away.LOL! 

then It happend, here he comes! Thump thump thump my heart was racing, he stoped be hind some thick brush allowing me to stand, he took a few more step clear, broadside, I was about to draw but he turned and looked my way, He then turned and headed to the barrel, which allowed me to draw, he sat downkinda half way, reached for the barrel,THUP, TWACK!

bOY WAS THE HEART IN OVER DRIVE!! I knew I couldnt go after him right away, so i made a few texts and got down and quietly left the area, for reinforcements. i picked up a freind in town, gatherd a few things, and headed back. About and half later from an easy tracking job from a Rage 2 blade chisle tip, we found him piled up about fifty yards from stand. OH MAN!! i WAS JACKED FREEKING UP. iVE SHOT ALOT OF BEARS, but this one is pretty special. Turns out its not a he but she! and she tipped the scales at a solid dressed weight of 300 pounds! big sow. In special I mean she is my second Bow Kill. I cut my teeth on my first bear 15 years ago with a Bow. I havent killed anything since till last night. Only 2 bow kills to my belt and both were Bear!  What awsome start to the season!!

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
