    A Productive Weekend, Two Bears in Two Days!

    Harvested two bears in two days, both popped up an hour before sunset.

    Good job.
    Last weekend I only saw one bear who is a bit over 2 years old. Let it go to live another 2 years.
    How did you preserve the quality of the meat in the field with two bears in this hot weather?
    Life is too short and time goes too fast. Hunt, hunt, and hunt....

    I take a cooler/freezer in a trailer with me now. Also, a couple Yeti coolers... one for perishables and one for beer. Its always a dilemma whether the bigger one is for beer or food!

    Honestly I thought I was just so lucky. The first evening I visited the cut block that I harvested a bear last spring, and there was a bear (the black one in my second picture) eating grass right at the same spot where I killed my 2023 spring bear. By the time I finish quartering, I spent a couple hours viewing northern light and decided to skip the morning hunt. The second evening I went to a different location, a location my buddy sent me that he saw a black bear but could not have a shooting opportunity a couple days ago. I tried to navigate there but there were some ditches / deactivation that drove me nuts cuz clock was ticking... By the time I made it there, a beautiful colour-phased bear was walking right in the open! And that concludes my spring bear hunt.

    I had a large and a medium cooler, each contained ice (I use empty coke bottles / 4L milk containers to freeze water to ice) so the coolers are kept at zero degree. By the time the ice melt, I buy ice from gas station.
