While talking to the rancher the other evening and having a cool one, Hap, the rancher wanted to know how the antelope hunting was progressing .We told him it was tough with all the rain but we where having a great time.
Hap told us to hurry and get an antelope because he is in charge of the bear hunting on the famous UU Bar Ranch and the Filmont Boy Scout Ranch. He said the bears where causing a lot of problems down low in the mountains and he was getting pressure to take more bears. Hap said he would take us if we got a tag.
I decided to get my tag early because you can't hunt until 48 hours after the purchase of the tag.
So after filling my antelope tag yesterday we were all set to go hunting bear. Around 10:00 a.m. in a canyon that was full of bear candy, "acorns", a mature bear was spotted. This is a beautiful chocolate boar with a white v marking under his chin, is gorgeous and going to make a great mount.
The last 6 days have been a great time with great people and friends. There is one buddy left to fill his antelope tags, so keep checking for results...
