Finished up a night shift, tossed on my hunting clothes, and met the boys a little after 7am for the first drive of the season. Got everyone set and started the drive about 750am. At 830am I pulled the trigger on my second PA black bear. Initially I thought I missed, as I only had a small opening in the laurel, and the bear was about 80 yards away, quartering hard away from me. The bear took off at the shot, and a few seconds later I heard the moans that only a bear hunter can appreciate. I sat tight until the drive finished, and 20 minutes later had my hands on one of the nicest thick furs I’ve seen on a PA bear. Turns out the shot was perfect, I took out both lungs. I’ve been waiting for years to kill a bear with my 350 Rem Mag, and it definitely didn’t disappoint. Two other bears were spotted from that same drive, and one was shot by a gentleman that wasn’t hunting with out group. We were glad he was able to take advantage of the bears sneaking out the side of our drive, and welcomed him to sit there on future openers. The rest of the drives came up empty as far as bears go, however numerous large bucks were seen. At the check station the sow weighed in at 230lbs. The pelt is at the taxidermist, meat is at the butcher, and I’m trying to figure out the best way to explain to the wife how much this is all going to cost! I’ve got high hopes for next Saturday and phase two of the TT!

I did. Shot an 8 point in archery season (before the bear), and two long beards in the spring. Also got a bobcat that year, which was the last year you had to draw a tag for them. If I remember correctly I didn’t kill a fall bird that year. I’ve still got a tag and two days to get that done this year. So, that’s the only way I have a chance to top that year. I’m gonna give it my best shot!
