    Cool NY Bear with My Martin

    Shot my second NY bear with a Martin(08 Moab, 63 lbs, 29"), this one while on the ground still hunting. Quartering to, 20 yard shot with a NAP Nitron tipped CX Maxima Hunter; she ran 30 yds and was down in sight.







    The spot:
    Recurves: 40lb X-200, 45 & 50lb Hunters, 45lb Mamba

    Well done! Congratulations on another bear. How bout more of the story? Oregon bear hunters want to know how it done on the other side of the country.

    Thanks everyone.

    In response to the questions about how we hunt black bear in NY: no bait, no dogs(anymore), long seasons, everyone gets a tag w/ license. They really try to keep the numbers down to avoid conflicts with people. For hunting NY is divided into North and South, I live in the Northern Zone, mostly woods and mountains. The bear season is long, starts in mid Sept with rifles. Not many bowhunters up North: last year 606 bears were taken on the Adirondack region, only 39 by bowhunters: in my county 61 were taken, only 1 by bow.

    There were lots of bears around last Fall looking for food; I kept hearing reports of them close to here. Sounded like they were headed North and I did the same, trying a couple spots; mostly after deer but figured I might get lucky with the bears. I really wasn't expecting to run into them, it was the afternoon of the first ever youth hunt in NY for deer. I was still hunting along slowly when I glanced to my left and spotted what first looked like two people, it was two bears both were standing up. They were downwind and must have smelled me. I dropped to my knees, next thing they were at 20 yds and headed at me; drew back, aimed and it was all over in less than a minute.

    Got my first bear from a treestand 5 years ago, I had seen some tracks but was looking for deer; a young male feeding on acorns walked right under me. Later my neighbor told me he had seen him stealing tomatoes from his garden. Saw a smaller bear alone the next week that year. Saw my first and only other bears while bowhunting in Oct. a couple years earler, a sow with two full grown cubs; they left sign all over the mountain near the oaks that year, really liked the chesnut oaks.

    Here's a link to the latest report, just released: New York State Black Bear Harvest Summary 2012
