I never thought of using a turkey call for bears, I might have to try that next month.  :biglaugh:

Rough Run,
  Have seen a couple more bears here this spring and all were FAT. Last year had a banner year for mast (Soft & hard) so they all went into winter carrying extra lbs. Coupled with a fairly easy winter they'll have to get out the jogging shoes :)

You don't need spray, you need a bear tag.

4 yards may as well be 4 inches with that big ole dude. You've got more nerves than me :scared:

Very cool! The possibility of calling in a bear did cross my mind briefly this spring. All I got were raccoons...

WOW!  I hope I can see a bear that big when I'm up bear hunting at Stickflingers the first week of June! He really is carrying some weight. Nice big head too. :bigsmyl:

Really cool.  4 yards is great for turkeys but I’m thinking that is a little too close for that guy!  Great pic and story.

My heart was thumping with a tom at 4 yards.  I can't imagine how I'd feel with a nice big bear like that at 4 yards.  Might have flung a blunt at him at 15 just to remind him to be cautious of humans.  Or to make myself feel big for a second.

Idk we’ve got a million bears around here. Never seen one go after a turkey. Never heard of it either. Don’t know if it was actually called up or just wandered through and caught an odd scent on the deke.
I’ve had em at 4 yards as well boring a hole through me. I don’t think it was more than trying to decipher what we were. My daughter was  I think 13, it nerved her up enough she missed him at ten yards and she can shoot her bow. She even had a hard time getting to full draw. Great story for her though as I’m sure for you

Bowguy67,
  I agree. It's the rut and he probably came by happenstance and got curious. However, maybe my calling was so bad and weak he thought there was an easy snack waiting! :goldtooth:

Some birds have really weak calling so it wouldn’t matter. Either way I’m sure you’re calling is fine, your handle is birdbow. You must have taken a few.
I’ve killed many, never one w bow. Don’t know why as a kid I tried but that was in the early 80s. Maybe tomo I was thinking last night. Already taken a few this spring w a spear! Just kidding I took them w gun
