    Big Bear Down

    That's a big bruin ! Bushwacken in the dark with a heavy load on your back is a be och ! Congratulations to you guys . on a well earned bear.
  4. I have hunted December/January archery down in 36b & 36c off and on for the last 8 years. I have run into many illegals but havent had any serious issues with them . I'm burned out on that area , not from fear , but due to all the activity caused by the illegals and drug runners.With border patrol chasing them on foot, horseback, on quads and with choppers buzzing the tanks it can be a little disruptive to a hunt. Kudos to BP, as I know their efforts are necessary, but I have decided to move on to different units to chase deer in Az . When I hunt , I am looking for a peaceful experience, with less acivity busting up my hunts. I love the country down in the 36's less all the trash in the washes and there's plenty of deer to chase around . Best of luck to everyone hunting down there. Hope you get one of those 100 inches that I've seen down there.

    Meat processing ( Set up )

    That's a great buy for someone ! I have that 1 HP Cabelas grinder and it's awesome. Cabelas wants at least 500.00 for it plus shipping. With the table and dehydrator this is a screamin deal ! Good luck with the sale .

    Black Bear Stew - pics not in order

    Looking really good Kidso ! IMO the only time to just throw a bear steak on the grill is when you need new soles on your boots ! My preference is to either eat bear cooked down in a stew like Kidso made or cook up chili, chili verde type dishes. The key is to cook it way down until it's nice and tender in its own gravy. Nice lean "ground bear" cut with eight to ten percent beef fat cooked in various forms such as tacos, burritos, spaghetti, enchiladas, bear helper ect. is a great way to eat bear meat. A nice bear burger is pretty good too . I have eaten a lot of bear and it's good stuff !

    Forest Rd closed due to bears

    NFS is obviously trying prevent any potential "Bearjacking" episodes along the route ! Just a ridiculous action IMO !
  9. Big Congratulations on your first archery bear ! Thanks for the play by play. Bears have a tendency to pop out of the brush really close to you at times ! Welcome to the Sloth !

    The Lucky One

    Way to be dude,, Good job locating , calling and killing that nice bear. I'd be throwing that release in the trash ! Lucky you didn't run out of arrows. I understand that little bit of crazy TJ was talking about. Dem bears get in your blood for sure. When you're on a bear , fear isn't a consideration. When reflecting back is when you think about how that bruin might have Et' me for a snack ! Congratulations on a job well done . Our archery bear opens up the 3rd Saturday in August . I'm ready to go now ! : )
  11. I enjoyed the write up Kidso Only thing that ever came in when I tried my hand callin bears was a weasel. I've killed plenty of bears , just never had much luck calling them Bummer that you couldn't recover that bear !
