Went out this last weekend for some bear hunting action here in Oregon. It was my buddies first ever bear hunt, and we ended up taking a pretty nice one. i am estimating his live weight between 250 and 275, and he has an absolutely beautiful coat on him. Pictures and the entire story as to how the whole trip played out is up on my blog at the link below. Had a great time, and couldn't have asked for a better result in getting a great friend a great bear.
Great looking bear and a great story to go with it. Congrats!
Nice bear!!! Can't wait to try for one myself this coming fall.
Nice Bear. Getting ready to go in a week.
It's not very often somebody posts a blatant account of poaching on the internet. In case you didn't know arrowslinger, here in Oregon it is illegal to shoot a big game animal if you don't have a tag which clearly you didn't based on your blog. I really doubt that the Eastmans developed this forum for you to boast about poaching.
It's really a bummer as that would have been a nice bear to hunt legally.
Congrats, nice bear with a beautiful coat! You guys earned that one!
Best of Luck,
EDIT - I see you edited out the part where you and your buddy (also without a tag) both shot and hit the bear in additon to the guy with the tag. Now it was a one shot kill. Wow! Nice job....
