    I get the sports pack so I already have my turkey, deer, elk, bear, and cougar tags. I might try fall bear but am leaning towards spring because the hide isn't as rough.

    Had a 200 + pounder looking at my thirty year old apple trees, a week back about mid day. The dam thing took a run up the driveway and came within thirty feet of me standing in the shop door way. Two more steps and I would have slammed the door.

    Did you throw your pants away or were you able to clean them?

    No but I will say I have no Idea why he started running as he was going the other way and decided to cross into the field, then decided to stop, the black berry vines are 15+ yards deep.

    He was about 35 - 40 yards away and I had been watching him from the yard headed to the shop. I slipped behind him to get into the shop and watched him with half my body out the door at 90 degrees. He then stood up on his hind legs to get a good whiff just before the dash up hill. Maybe he winded me or the chickens?

    I must say I wondered about the door for a second during my Oh x#*! moment.

    I hunted bear with dogs in my youth this was unusual and it did shake my tree for a moment.
