Iím sure your aware that bears are hard to judge! I added a bear tag on a hunt and took this bear but Iím not gonna lie...there was ground shrinkage! Still feel fortunate to take this bear on my hunt.

Thanks guys!! I was hesitant to shoot on night one, but I told myself if the opportunity presented itself for me to take a color phased Bear I was going to take it!

The morels were awesome. Darrell fried some up for us and they were great!! Ryan has attracted the most ticks out of anyone. Headed out for the night hunt now!

Those morels (aka sponge mushrooms) look awesome! Ain't had any since I left Ohio back in '81, to move back here. Should be a few others available also, since those are up.

Mine let it loose twice.
A little eerie hearing it in the forest when everything else is so quite.
I also hunted Manitoba.
