I started baiting as soon as the snow let me. This year June 8! I have a great helper now. Sometimes he like to eat the marshmallows before the bear. Hunt

Rain is shine the baits have to be restocked every 3 days. It's one of my favorite parts of the process. The mountains a heavy pack and time to think. Good practice for elk season. Hunt

We made camp and Hunt had to work the following day so he would join back up with us in a day or so. He had worked his butt off getting these baits going and the cameras showed lots of bears.

Zach said he was shooting the first bear that gives him a chance tonight. This black one made the mistake of doing just that. Rubbed bad but Zach was thrilled!

After a few hours of sleep we head out to check in the bears and meet up with Hunt. We had no cell service to tell him of our success so he was jacked hearing that two bears were down. We eat lunch have a couple beers throw some horseshoesand Zach buys a second tag he we head back for camp.

We are fleshing bears and having some beers and telling lies when an hour later Zach pulls into camp. He is pumped! He had made a good shot on a nice chocolate boar. After a short tracking job we found his trophy and To say Zach was happy is an understatement!

It was a slow night but with a half hour of light remaining a giant shows himself about 60 yards down the ridge. Hunt grabs his bow and gets ready but a wind shift is all this old boar needed to survive and like that he was gone. Hunt blamed this stank ass Nebraska boy for getting winded! Lol. It was a great experience to see the giant of the mountain.

We meet up with the other boys and Matt asked Hunt if he had that pistol handy? He had hit a nice bear that went into some thick stuff and wasn't thrilled with the bears reaction after the hit as it just slowly walked away and didn't even act hit. Matt was sure if the shit however. After a 100 yard track job we find another beautiful bear.

After the feed we broke out the corn hole. HUNT's dad said we were legit excited cornholers! Still don't know if that was a compliment.
