2019 bear

At 12:30 Saturday in the ANF I killed my first PA black bear. My dad and I were walking a creek bottom when he said BEAR!!! It was already going Mach 5 before we shot...I shot twice and he shot once and the bear was still running and running fast... I took my time and picked an opening for the last shot and that last shot piled him up like a sack of potatoes. Hit him in the neck. It sure was an awesome experience and topped any of my buck harvests to date. After a two mile drag we got to the check station and it was an adult boar that weighed 118 lbs. I’m am still just absolutely thrilled. God is good!!! I killed a 16” 7 point in archery so needless to say I am going to be spring gobbler hunting super hard this year!
