First Archery Bear

I got a shot at this guy this morning, and managed to knock him down. I actually shot him twice, once at 25 and once at 45. He only went about 50 yards and piled up. I just got done getting him to a processor since it is warm, and gettin him checked by the game commission.

The estimated live weight is 548, dressed weight was 468.

Luckily it was on my property and i was able to get my tractor right to it. Its quite the ordeal gutting a 500 pound bear alone though let me tell you.
