Tagged Out

Every once in a while, everything does go right.   Hunters, you know what I'm talking about.   Not too often, in the outdoor world, everything falls into place as we see it in our minds.   When it does happen that way, it is what keeps us doing it time and time again.

By September 5th I was tagged out with my 2 no-quota beers.   It was a season I will never ever forget.   I did my research, scouting, baiting, and my hunting to the best of my ability.   Every bit of it payed off.
September 2nd, 7:15 p.m. I shot my first bear.   It was a bit warm so after the kill I was in speed mode.   Deciding to get the bear home and taken care of right away to avoid any spoilage.   With bear number 1 in the freezer I still had a fresh active bait so I headed right back up.

September 5th, 4:45 p.m. I had just arrowed my 2nd bear.   I couldn't believe how quickly it had all unfolded.   A new, bigger, bear had been on my bait within the last 4 days.   I was worried about getting a daylight shot, because the 2 bears on this bait had crossed over to night hitting.   Never in my wildest dreams did I expect the bigger one to show up before 5:00 p.m.!

Both hunts we captured on film!   I self filmed both of my bears being shot with archery equipment.   Once all of my footage is loaded the editing process will begin.   I can't wait to finish the video and share it will all of you!   It is going to rock!   I will get it up for viewing as soon as I'm finished.  

The forest has blessed me once again.   Good luck to all my fellow outdoorsman!

I am very sorry for the missing Baiting: Weekend #3.   I have been experiencing internet troubles.   I believe the issue has now been resolved.   Bear opener is here and I'm headin' out.   I will keep you posted on my journey for an archery bear.   Good luck to all the bear hunters hittin' the forests!!!
