Good write up Randy. Glad you had a good hunt and got a nice trophy. Are you going to stay while your brother hunts as well?

Congrats again on the bear, I can't imagine how exciting that must have been. Is that your First Bear?

The grouse are a delicious treat and great fun to hunt. Enjoy the rest of the trip and good hunting to your kin folk.

Thx everyone. And yes, this is my first bear! Makes it really special that I got to hunt with my brother and all his hard work made this possible! We drove off the mountain today and met the local game warden at his place to check in my bear. He aged the bear at around 10 years old. He also was pretty impressed that I got it with Trad gear that I made! He was a great guy to deal with and he kept congratulating me on my success!

Congrats on the bear. It's a rush hunting them with a bow. I need to get one with my longbow.

Way to go Randy! That's living the dream. I got a feeling that won't be the last trad bear you post that smile says it all.
