Hunted pretty much every morning and evening this week. Had constant bear activity. Sows and cubs. I had a picture of this one all alone a few times, but mostly at night. I figured it was a boar and decided to shoot it if it came in. I know there are bigger bears around, but they have not showed up.

Sat on the ground with my back to a big oak. The bear walked by at 25 yards and I spinned it with my Excalibur Crossbow and Swhacker 150. Dragged itself about 30 yard and expired. Was surprised to find it was a sow and not a boar!

Was able to get a 150 foot rope on it to pull it up a steep embankment with the Jeep. Then loaded into the back of my pickup with a loader. Just got done skinning and butchering.

Weighed it at home on my 300# Cabelas Big Buck Scale, since they don't do it at check in anymore. 290#.

Planning on having the skin tanned.

Thanks for reading.

Nice job. Not the giant you were hoping for but that is still a big bear.
Question, do they den up down there or are they out and about all year?
