Default 5 more days!!

Only 5 days left before I fly to Wyoming to go bear hunting with my brother. I can honestly say I've been looking forward to this hunt more than any I've been on. It don't get any better than Some cool mountain air with a bow in my hand!! Except for maybe sitting around a campfire in said mountains with just me and my brother! I Can't hardly wait!!!

Just landed in Denver, waiting to board flight to Billings.
Here's a pic my brother sent of a good color phase bear that's been frequenting the bait along with several other good blacks! Starting to get really excited now!!

Looks to be good sitting. Though I would not want to challenge that bear for the snack.

I'd go to that bait site too. It almost ain't fair to use donuts.

Had a great first day. Sat from daylight till dark. 14.5 hrs.
Had a young boar come in at 11:30 this am and then he came back right at dusk. He hung around for a long time and eventually heard me whispering to my brother. Then he got curious!! He couldn't find what he heard so he kept circling and eventually stood at the base of my ladder and put his nose on the steps and was looking me in the eye!!
GREAT first day in my book!!!

I then climbed the hill of torture back to camp to drop off my gear and get a pack. Luckily my brother and my nephew was there and they came back to help pack out. Thank God!!
