I waited out and managed to get a surplus bear tag last week. Well worth the whole morning in a store. The excitement and anxiety during that itself was sick. My first hunt with a bow being a bear hunt is pretty sweet. Hoping I have almost everything ready for baiting and season to start in less than a week. Got clothes ready, scent control ready, picking up 1000 lbs of sweets and stuff for bait today, few bags of corn and monster raxx bear attract, stand set, lanes cleared, trail cams ready, barrel ready, signs ready, gopro camera ready, arrangements for potential kill made. Just gotta register bait station, final tuning of bow. Between reading and questioning friends and others for knowledge hopefully the few hundred hours will come together for this. Any words of advice or things I'm missing more than welcome. Hopefully I'll have some pics/updates in time.
