Before the shot
After the shot
This bear only weighed 260 lbs. dressed out. It was shot by a guy that my dad invited with. I had a bear kill tag myself but didn't tree a bear big enough to satisfy me. We treed and killed plenty though so you beekeepers in northern WI can sleep a little better.
I did get to have a little fun chasing(running on foot) a bear that would not go up a tree but decided to fight the dogs on the ground instead. According to my GPS I was carrying I ran 1.2 miles through the woods with the dogs(2) and bear until they got close enough to the road so we could get more dogs in the chase. After 4 more hounds were released the bear quickly realized that it would be best to climb a tree. It was tempting to kill that bear after the exciting chase but it was a small sow so I passed.
Now I need to contact the WI DNR and see if they used food grade materials when making the bear kill tags because I need to make Tag Soup with mine.
