AZ bear hunt.
« on: October 28, 2003, 11:14:00 AM »
I went bear hunting in the AZ rim country this past weekend with a couple of friends, Eric and Paul, and without their help would have never had found or had the opportunity to take such a great bear.  Anyway here are the details, while stillhunting for bear, I saw a beautiful jet black bear, the problem was he was almost directly downwind from me, as I tried to set up a shot it winded me and ran away. I decided to try and cut him off at the pass, and moved a couple of ridges over and stopped. I began glassing and immediately spotted this chocolate boar moving my way, I only had to glide forward a few steps next to a small pine. The bear came at me, and at 20 yds ( paced off after the shot) stopped and gave me a broadside shot, the  magnus tipped easton carbon arrow from my 54# fedora recurve passed completely thru both lungs, the bear ran 102 paces before collapsing in a canyon. It took mere seconds for this to happen. This is without doubt the highlight of my 2003 season.

Nice bear! Congratulations. That would be one of my highlights this year for sure.
