Wow Ironranger, terrible story!!! Every year stuff like this happens, tough on everyone Involved. I'm not sure yet Matt. If I get drawn for a Mn bear tag I'll be taking some time off here In Mn the 1st week of September to do that. Kind of depends on how that goes I guess. Also depends on If I have any problems with my business (milk route) around the time I want to leave. There's always that chance I won't make this trip or any hunting trip I have planned regardless If I have purchased tags or not. There's always that chance of me leaving early too If I have troubles with the milk route also while I'm out there. Honestly I'd like to be out there hunting for at least 10 days so I suppose If I could be there by the 13th or so I'd be happy with that. To early for me to say though.
