Just got back from heritage lake lodge in Ontario. What a blast I had!!!! 7 guys with crossbows and 7 bears taken in 3 days. One was 420!!!! Mine was around 200. But had a nice white patch on his chest. I was about 8 feet up, he came to my right 10 feet away. Woofing the whole time, I watched him for 10 minutes, he was rubbed up pretty bad, made him look smaller. He was 15 yards away, took my shot. The arrow went in and blew the the bears opposite shoulder!!! Went 30 yards and did the death moan!!! It was such a great time 😊😊😊. I'll have gena add pics later😊

Excellent!! bears really get the adrenalin pumping when they show up! ;)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of truth is at hand.

Just spent a week fishing at a lodge in Ontario where some 10 bear were taken, several with crossbow. Unfortunately some of them were not much bigger than black labs. The owner charges only $1500 ea per week of hunting/fishing, and everyone filled, but I't definitely "so, I killed a bear" kind of thing. And another bunch of bear hunters coming after we left.
He's jeopardize his future by hitting the population that hard. Decent walleyes are few and far between as well.
Vortex, Phoenix, single-shot rifles and handguns.

Why hunt? Simple, it's BASIC. Why breath?!
