Good luck to everyone who goes out. Be sure of your shots and make clean kills if you get the opportunity.
I will be out all eight days, that is unless I get lucky on one of the first seven. I have been seeing bears on a regular basis during my scouting walks, and actually almost literally walked into a bear on one occasion. I was walking directly toward a huge old white oak tree, and when I went around it I was face to face with a younger bear. Not sure who was the most scared, but he ran faster than I could so it was a good thing he ran away instead of toward me.
