Power pole that the bears have been chewing on to make territory.

Great sit I saw 9 bears this evening . One small boar, two huge sows with 6 cubs. Taylor shot a big boar waiting until morning for the recovery. Shot was good, complete pass through, good blood on arrow but no blood to trial going to wait just to be safe.

Woke up to rain and colder temps. Heading to go look for Taylorís bear. He was shooting DRT broadhead, hit it behind the shoulder with a complete pass through. Arrow was covered in blood but they didnít find blood on ground. Our guide said itís not uncommon due to the fat bears have closing the hole up. Hopefully we will have a quick recovery.

I just settled in for the evening. We actually came and baited this stand yesterday and it got hammered all the barrels were down (we stood one up for a size reference in case one comes in). Lots of sign in here it looks promising.

Itís misting with temps about 35-40. I need another kill so I have someone to hang out with and finish this beer. Lol.

Taylor(one who wounded yesterday) had a giant Sow come in with two year old cubs. He didnít know he could take a shot on a sow as long as her cubs were old enough.

I wondered into town to pass some time. Was happy to find a Dr. Pepper at Walmart!
