Doubt I could do three miles or even a mile. I've found sign and seen bears a lot closer and uphill from the service roads. Call me lazy but there are better ways.

Found one bear 1 mile down a service road......you will meet a bunch of hunters when you are close to the main roads.

This buck came back 2 hours after I missed him.....

He also brought 3 other mature bucks! A 10 point, 7 point (which was an 8 last year) and a large body funky 7 point.

I'll swap cards this weekend and post up pics..........

Been hunting this place every other day so I don't pressure it too much........it is extremely thick around this place and I think the bucks are comfortable regardless of hunting pressure.......

Got pics of him last year.....he was a 10......he is 3.5.......I hope he makes another year.

The 8 point came in at dark Sunday night......he is older......he will taste just fine.

I had a second shot at the big 8............15 yards broadside.......I hit him.......I hit him just behind the shoulder quartering away...........about 4 in. of arrow went in.........10 small drops of blood over 100 yards.......I was on hands and knees.......luckily my dog found the blood and trail the deer to the cutover.........I thought for sure the blood would be easier to see on the tall green dog fennels.......NOPE........zero blood! I clearly saw the trail he took........no blood whatsover......

Thinking back I think the broadhead buried under his shoulder.......I am 99% sure he is still alive........went out yesterday and searched for buzzards..........no buzzards.

I started off pretty bad this year.......I didn't hunt the rest of the weekend....

Looking forward to taking Bailey next Saturday.
