I covered 5 miles while still hunting the other day. I got within 20 yards of over a dozen deer. Around 6pm I spotted a nice 250lb bruin 100 yards away feeding on acorns. He was angling away from me and I kept trying to get in front of him to cut him off. I "chased" him for 15 minutes and finally got to 50 yards. I saw he was changing course and would soon turn broadside so I drew back, and when he hit a small opening, I loosed my arrow, I could see my lighted nock going directly for its mark, until about 10 feet in front of the bear, it hit a twig and made a sharp left turn and stuck in a tree about 5 yards away from the bear. The bear ran 50 yards, stopped, and started feeding again, so I resumed my pursuit, but he was now approaching a laurel thicket and I didn't have enough daylight or real estate to get around in front of him. I shoot my bow very often and I am dialed in pretty well up to 60 yards so I had no issue with the distance of that shot. With it being almost dark now, I popped out onto a gas line and was going to walk it back to my truck. Looking off into the distance, I could see another bear half a mile away walking up the gas line as it climbed an opposing mountain face. For a second, I thought about hustling down to put a stalk on it, but I knew I was just about out of daylight. I'll be back out this evening to hunt through a few more natural feeding areas.
