My bud Gus (left) with his cousin Jack and Gus' first ever bear.......a 310# Bruin shot opening morning in Pennsylvania. Their camp is over the next hill from ours so when the "bear down" call came in it only took us minutes until we had a wheeler and a truckload of guys heading up there to give him a hand. The whole thing seemed a bit surreal at first and there were a lotta "holy shits" exchanged as we walked up to the bruin. I realize black bears can get bigger in this state, but let me tell you this thing was big enough and impressive as hell up close. The glazed look on Gus' face as he retold the events was perhaps the best part of it all.
Needless to say, there was quite a party at camp that night!
|With the gang.....thanks Gus for letting us share it with you!|
