Bear Down!!
« on: June 02, 2013, 03:20:00 PM »
Took a long walk up a logging area with Trad member "nock Hunter" and sure enough on the way back to the truck we spotted this guy crossing the road in front of us. We ripped off our boots and kept down the road. He popped out 38m below us in the logging slash, at a steep angle. I waited until he was 25M up on a log and with my Hoyt Dorado (Thanks Andy "FJTOYMAN") I put and arrow behind the shoulder. Learned a good lesson, I shot it just like a 3d animal as we just finished our 3d season up North and I know better and should have aimed higher at that steep angle, but we got him in the end.    Good Times!!!
