Wink Looking For The Correct Size Bear

I'm hunting solo this bear season here in Perry Co. My plan is to sneak up hill from where I park the truck, maybe 300 yds from it. Try for a bear that will not be over 297 pounds and will fit on the "hitch n haul". So it can't be too long. After field dress that would reduce the weight to about 238 pounds. Good for sliding down hill on a heavy tarp and I can lift that much weight to load it alone. The other thing is my wife said the freezer is getting full, so space is limited. There is a plan! What do you think?

I think you should just concentrate on seeing a bear first and worry about weighing it after you shoot it!

Agree with the first two far, unless a bear has been spotted in the area I would go where the most sign is not the handiest spot.

I'll fine tune your plan.

Park your car with the hitch to a hillside, walk 59 yards off the road, wait to day break, shoot the bear more back in the lungs bear drops by hitch, field dress bear, half roll on to carrier, strap down, take the long way to the check station, stopping at every gas station, store, you get the the plan.

I was always told the proper way to take a bear is you wait for the lake to freeze over, drill a hole in the ice, and set out 7 peas around the hole. When the bear comes to the hole to take a pea, you kick him in the ice hole!

You guys are funny!! You know I'm just having fun with this. I go bear hunting and see some big beautiful bucks, go back to that stand and see only bears. Then comes the combine season -- see nothing. gearhart15 -- good plan!
