One of my best friends and longtime hunting partner  Theo shot a bear the other night. We had been watching it for the last two years on trail cameras. After discussing we elected to wait until the following morning to track. Weather was very cool at night and Theo was concerned about shot placement. Based on what he told me I thought heart shot. This is a "Do it yourself " after work and weekends hunt. I picked up barrels cheap and have a friend that gave us all the restaurant scraps we needed. Theo is 5k ( 3 miles ) from his house and my stand is 30k ( 18 miles away ).

Bear only went 70 yards with a perfect heart shot. 660 grain arrow complete pass through and stuck in the ground. Last twenty yards were solid. I was "Lead" tracker and found the bear 15 yards into the swamp. Good thing Theo was backing me up with his Widow recurve. I felt very safe,, LOL. Worst part was getting that bear ( dressed at 252 pounds ) estimated live weight 300 lbs out of the swamp. An hour later we had him out of the swamp and on dry land. Then we used my game cart called the ATV ( All Theo and Vandeputte,, LOL ) to get him to a fire road. Best part was loading him into the trunk of a Honda Civic.
We were both dead tired and smelled of swamp and bear and sweat.
