I'm not going to target one, but if'n one comes by I think I'll pop em. Had a couple show up the last few weeks on the property I hunt alot.

I've had a few chances over the years, but didn't want to fool with a 8 hr drag

John,
You do understand this is Georgia.....Bear down......Call friends and say "you'll never guess what I shot".......Meet friends for help......Go back to wear bear lays......Take lots of photos......Decide on how to drag it out.....Load bear into truck and head to local watering hole....Take more photos......Ask someone if there is a processor near by......Call processor and meet up with him......Drop bear off 10 hours after shooting but noticing the belly expanding.......





Complain about how bear taste.....

If I kill one, it will be easy to get too. Like Duff, the area I was hunting has stopped me from drawing my bow on several over the years.

No desire to shoot a bear unless its trying to kill me....Ive had the chance quiet a few times hunting these hills and have passed....I dont like the meat and have no room nor money to make a rug. Not to mention the hassle you have to go through with DNR after the kill.

Ive had it after it being handled and prepped right and cooked every way to Sunday and the ONLY way I have found it edible is pressure cooked and turned into BBQ.

All bears will get a pass by me unless I fear for my life

You can bet, it will run over the ridge and down the other side, away from your truck after you shoot
