Random pics/clips for 2008! The beginning is just me playing around 1min later it will shot the Wild Game I harvested.

Both bears taken with a 45-70 lever action marlin 1st) 50yrds 2nd) 230-250 (I dont have a range finder but my estimations are accurate)
In the beggning Is my old .444 lever action marlin now gone, traded for a 38 special s&w.

The deer were all taken with my crossbow.

For xmas I got a 2009 hoyt avanger and a 300winmag 770 series. I plan on getting a bear with both this year. (no bait was used, its illegal in B.C. Canada)

bear season starts in April! deer not until Aug.

Nice Great use of an awesome Colt Ford song. Thanks for not using the Hunting the World song. It would have been too much. Nice Bears I'd love the chance to bear hunt some day.

Cool video, but I've never heard that song and quite frankly I hope I never have to hear it again. We have country rappers now? Different strokes, I guess.

G'day OLNfan. Is that the typical size of black bear?

I've never heard that song and quite frankly I hope I never have to hear it again.

I don't think I will lose any sleep if I never hear that style of 'song' again. Give me some Credence or even Beach Boys.

I can safely say my first boar was over 300 pounds. And my second boar was 230-250. These pictures dont quite give it justice. You gotta see them when their on all 4s and they just look huge. But typical size? in my hunting area yes. If I drive 2hrs further then I can run in to 400-700 pound black bears and brown bears with out even trying. Why dont I hunt their? Well its easy. Black bears just like any other most of their diet is rougly greens, berries, wild onions etc. The meat side of their diet can get kind of un flattering. When the fish are spawning, moldy, and stink. These guys are out their catching them. They can be laying on the side of the river bank for 2 weeks or 2 mins they dont care, easy supper. The legal age to harvest a (black) bear I beleive is minimum 2-3 years. Some cubs leave earlier than others. some leave later. So when you get them while they are freshly on their own the odds of them of having worms in their system are low. Once you reach up to 4+years old theirs a high chance their infested with the buggers. So you want to get them at their prime/tender/legal age. hah. I know a few fellas that have kept the meat anyways and you cut open your roast and their little warms/maggots inside..still edible if you have thourouly cooked the roast. I for one am not in the mood to see this on my dinner table or even while Im butchering it. (I perfer to make my own sausages, salami's,chubs,steaks,roasts etc.)

For the deer I perfer to get a nice 2spike (2by2) because generally due to their age the odds are they havnt been in fights etc so their meat is going to be young and tender. The 4 spike I got in this video (4by4) with 2 nice brows I might add. Had obvoiusly been in fights before. You can tell by his rump, and his chest. He had OLD scar tissue over a rib that you could tell has clearly been fractured or broken before. I meen the odds of a deer having worms is low. The only way I could see is from open wounds from fighting or hit by a car etc.

This is how I have been taught to hunt, and it works for me. But I am going to aim for one rougly the same size as my first boar or slightly bigger just cause lets face it my second one may of tasted delicous but he aint as pretty as my first hah. But like I said they look alot bigger espically out 230 yrds.
