After tagging my big chocolate I wasnít ready to be done bear hunting so I got some permission and set a farmland bait so I could get a second tag. Laid eyes on this big guy about a week after I set it. He was feeding at 230 pm as I walked into bait. Since then itís been cat and mouse. June 29 Sask second last days of spring bear seaosn and my last day to hunt. Had been an uneventful evening had a yearling around and that been it. This bait only had three bears so I wasnít going to see many. 7 minutes of shooting light he marched into the bait cracking branches shaking trees and that was all she wrote. Quick rough of 20 1/8 this morning before he hit the freezer. A spring season Iíll never forget with a chocolate thatís 19 10/16 green and a big black that pushing 20

Good on you. That's a bear I would pay attention to if I saw him in the woods.

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Great bears this year. Do you have to pull a tooth for aging by the province? Be cool to know how old

We didnít actually kill anything because we waited on one giant black and another real big cinnamon but they never showed when the stand was occupied. All in all the bait was busy with at least twenty different bears hitting it, ten of them being every shade of colour you see black bears wearing.
