    Oregon Coast Spring Bear 2013

    I was able to fill my spring bear tag a few days ago so I figured I should post a few pics....

    I was getting a little anxious due to only seeing one bear so far in 6 weeks of hunting but I still hunted within 50 yards of this guy the other evening and he filled the bill nicely. Not the biggest boar I've killed by any means but probably the oldest judging by tooth wear....and how tough the stew meat is.

    Beautiful jet black hide.....


    And I was happy to kill another one with the old Winchester.


    Good luck to anybody still after a spring bear!

    Really nice. Spring bear hunting is on my list of "to do's". Unfortunately Colorado doesn't have a spring season! Maybe next year???
