I wanted to share a pic of my buddy Cory Searle and his first black bear he shot last night off of my bait.

Cory video taped me taking a good high country buck back in 2010. He always wanted to shoot a bear, so I offered him an invite to sit on my bait so I could return the favor and capture him shooting a bear on video.

We finally had bears coming in this weekend. The trail camera showed us that a boar was coming in at 3:00 in the afternoon. We eased in yesterday 2:45 on the bait, and sure enough he was on the barrel having a late lunch. We snuck within 29 yards of him but the thick undergrowth never gave Cory a clear shot. The wind swirled and boar just walked away into the forest.

We got into the stands and waited. Finally at 6:00, I spotted him moving through the pines. The boar knew something was up as he took his time to come in and feed. Finally at 7:40 he presented Cory with a shot. I had the camera rolling and Cory made good with his shot!

This is the eighth bear to be harvest off of this particular bait! Lots of fun :)

I have only posted one - I had to put it on YouTube then post a link. I did not have any luck embedding the file in my post but I'm kind of new to the whole forum thing. One day I'll spend some time and figure it out. I still don't even have a pic on my profile : /

I need a consultant!

Now that I have figured out how to upload pics in full, I wanted to share a few more of the hunt :)

Looks fun! I love that look - your buddy couldn't quit smiling after that if he wanted to!

Can't wait to hit the hills again Friday night - first hunt on a fresh new bait! Keeping my fingers crossed a good boar will drop in for a bite :)
