    I've been bear hunting since Aug 1st and since the 27th, deer and elk. But I am concentrating on this bear. Spend most of my days in the field after him. Small wonder, huh?

    I went out mid day... it started to get hot. I got busted by a 4 pointer when I looked over a ridge too fast. He stood there and just watched me. I ranged him at 146 yards. When I tried to get closer...some Does that I didn't see that were closer busted out and took the 4 pointer and smaller bucks with them. Later on I had a close encounter with two small bucks in the tall Sage. They heard me come in but couldn't get a wind on me. They were only 20 feet away. The wind was swirling and they couldn't get a read on me. While I was taking some pictures, i didn't know a Doe was coming up behind me. When I stood up I startled her and she did the same to me. She took off and slammed into an old barb Wire fence that was partially down. I glassed her just to make sure she wasn't injured. She seemed fine. I had to head back and take a break. I forgot my grub. I'm heading back out soon. I have better luck late afternoons. I also saw a Large Coyote but he was out of range.

    Default Tough Buck is Down!.

    I took this fella around 4 pm this afternoon in a CRP field. I call him "Tough Buck". He was bedded down in some sage. I had the wind to my advantage as I made my way to him...slowly. When the wind died down...I stopped...When the wind picked up...I moved. I basically crab walked sideways making sure that I was in Shooting position just in case he heard me and got up. I got to 21 yards and stopped. I had one sage blocking his view of me. I must have ranged the bush he was beside 100 times. I got into shooters position and Yelped at him. I saw his Antlers move left then right...then he got up. I place my 20 yard pin on the right front armpit and fired. I couldn't even hear the impact because of the wind. He bucked up once and dropped to his front knee's. I figured this is it....Nope!. He gets back up and trots off away 40 yards and beds down under another sage. It felt like a great shot but I started to second guess myself. I waited about 20 minutes glassing him. I thought he had expired but he picked his head up again, I knew he was wounded bad. With the high heat I couldn't back out and come back later, the meat would spoil plus i didn't want him to suffer. I slowly made my way toward him again using the same tactics. I got into 20 yards of him again and got into my shooters position. I had a west to east wind and it was picking up. I yelped to him and nothing happened...I yelped again, His antlers moved...He was weak. I finally just yelled. He slowly gets up and I aimed for the same right front armpit again. Fired. I see the impact and the blood blow out. He turns around facing east to try to go uphill to get away from me.,he didn't make it. He made it about 25 yards east and rolled. I could see all four hoofs up in the air in the sage. A couple of jerks of the hoofs and he expired. My son Arrived as well as a friend to help out. I gutted him out and we used a tarp to drag him out. After I got him skinned out I could see two puncture holes on the right side, the entrance, almost touching. I call him a "Tough Buck".

    He has 6 points on the left side but the eye guard is under the 1 inch rule. So I'm calling it 5.
    The right is 4 plus 1 eye guard way over the 1 inch rule. That's a 5.
