Bear Hunting - Going As Slow As Molasses
Archery bear season is here and yet again, I have yet to be out hunting it. Basically, all of the guys I normally go hunting with are hunting other places (which is awesome) or can't go on a Saturday afternoon. It's a reality I have grown accustomed to, but it still doesn't stop my hunger for the outdoors!
The area I like to hunt has lots of bears, but also mountain lions so I won't go in alone. Not out of fear, but because I am not stupid! I don't care how much bear spray or knives I have on me, if I get jumped alone, well, let's not think about that. In CA, when hunting bear during the bear archery season, you CANNOT carry a sidearm, soooo I carry bear spray. A big-ass can of it.
So, I have been rallying the troops all week trying to get one of my buddies to go. Most have already told me no. Even if I can't hunt, which will be extremely disappointing, I want to retrieve my trail cameras and see what's on them. That way I will know if I should even come back to this spot.
In the meantime, I am going to write up a couple of product reviews, pack my bags and hope one of my buddies will tag along. Beers and dinner are on me guys!
