Thanks everyone!!! I spotted the bear and took of stalking him with only one arrow and no handgun. Lol I shot him at 30 yards and he didn't go far at all. I went up and got my knives and grabbed another arrow just in case. My arrow went all the way through him, he didn't stand a chance! My first bear ever and it made it even better doing a spot and stalk with my bow!! I'm one little happy camper right now!

Because she's a girl.

No, probably because she never has a bad word to say about anyone.

Great job Jen, how big did the bear square.

Thank you! The bear was 5.5' and the skull was 17 3/4 inches.. Only like 1/4" from making pope and young! :)

Just for the record I was just giving her a bad time and would guess Elkoholic was doing the same. Jen like myself has been on this forum since the beging and we all take every chance we get poke fun at one another. That's why this forum is one of the best!

Yes we do... For some people it comes a little easier than others. Like making fun of sjsmallfield.. He makes it so easy it just flows out like a second language. ;)

Happy opening day to everyone going out tomorrow!! I've got my dogs loaded up and I'm on my way up the mountain! Hope to see lots of pictures from everyone when I get back!!!!! :)
Anyone else's adrenaline going already?!

What were you planning on hunting with the dogs, if you were hunting the bear spot and stalk? Just wondering.

jenbickel
09-10-2012, 04:59 PM
I wasn't going to hunt anything with my dogs. Just took them along for good company during the afternoon when I'm around the camper. I was planning on hunting my bear off my baits that were up there but on opening morning I spotted my bear and did a spot and stalk on it instead. :)

I was thinking you were going to run a mountain lion in your spare time (LOL).

Good luck. We can only pet those deer decimating creatures in California thanks to the bunny hugging liberals.
