I was fortunate to arrow this big ol' bear in Northern California yesterday while bowhunting for deer. My last hunt in California is starting to shape up well! Hope you enjoy.

That's a nice one!

I hunted up there last year for deer and bear, and saw a ton of bear sign, just not the bears themselves. I need to go back in the next couple of years!

Fantastic!

How are the deer looking? Weather doesn't look great, so hopefully the resident deer are still around.

Yeah, only big bucks seen have been on private. Shot just under a nice 155" Sunday evening...... haven't seen him again. Passed a lot of smaller bucks, but it's getting towards the end so I need to get it done. :}

My new taxidermist delivered my CA bear to my house earlier this week. I think the mount came out great.....incredible size and color.
