He drew on him at 6:45 and the bear got nervous and boogied off. He came in again at 7:10 but very nervous. He ran a couple smaller bears off the bait and my son drew but his leg was back so he held at full draw for 30 seconds and when the bear turned slightly 1/4ing away he released the arrow. The shot was a bit back and looked like liver blood on the arrow.

We waited overnight and blood trailed in the morning but came up empty after 3 hours. We went back to camp had breakfast and regrouped to search again. After 2 more hours of grid searching we found him in some swampy area that we had searched earlier but just not as far left as we went in the afternoon search.
