Long story short...I had just gotten down on the ground this evening and was packing up my Lone Wolf and gear. I heard a rustling (unlike a deer) and immediately thought coyote or fox. Then I looked up and noticed the darker than night silhouette. I shined my light and sure enough it was a bear and it walked by me at 15 yards. I guess my bright light spooked him and he took off and stopped at a base of a tree about 40 yards away, front paws up. He didn't climb the tree though and continued on his way. Pretty cool and honestly a little nerve-racking at the same time. Funny thing is, I had a sixth sense that I might see a bear this evening and I NEVER see bears while hunting. While on stand (before the encounter), I googled a bear's vitals to get a good idea where to aim in case I was lucky enough to get an opportunity. Also, I was dead tired when it was time to get off stand. I wanted to leave my LW there over the weekend but thought about a friend's stand that had been torn to sheds by a bear a few weeks back. So I decided to pack it out. Never have seen a bear on this property the 5 years I've been hunting it. I would guess the bear to be about 150 lbs. Not quite sure if I would have taken a shot if he had came by earlier. We'll see.
