Thumbs up Spring Bear Success!

After about a week of hunting, I finally put one down.

Thanks. It was DIY in Idaho. I think that after baiting for deer for years here in TX and now doing it successfully in another state for another species, that should qualify my as a Master Baitor.

Also, a big thanks to Darin Cooper's amazing Jagdterrier Jaeger (I can't promise I spelled that right). She trailed him about 400 yards so I could make a follow up shot. Bear was dying and I finished him off.

Beautiful bear, congratulations on getting it done with archery equipment. Especially awesome that it was a DIY hunt. Your picture makes me want to try that out sometime.
