    Earliest bear ever. May 3rd

    Well his boar came up to my back door. Can't have that. Cut a tag. A tall skinny 4 year old. Hanging in my shop right now. Normally they don't come out till the middle of may. Will be processed tomorrow.

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Nope can't have bears knocking on your door. What a nice surprise and excellent work!

    This will be mainly ground for different sausages. I will save some hams for my smoke house trials. I am even looking at the belly for a bacon trial. This is the skinniest bear I have ever shot. But this bear has been around here before and I fear for the betterhalf out working in the yard. It stood near 40 inches tall. We had muddy foot prints on our basement door. One less moose calf and deer fawn killer.
    Got to buy another tag now.
    Yup the dandelions are sprouting. Usually the bears come out when the grass if 6 inches tall. It is barely 2 inches tall. But this guy was hungry.
