This is probably the most exciting moment we had the entire 2012 season. Bear #1 had already been taken two days prior. We hunted our last day and my partner David Eldridge shot a nice bear that evening. We could not find the bear by dark. We stayed an extra night and replayed the footage over and over again. It appeared the shot may have been under the bear. In the morning, we returned to the exact spot where the bear was standing and we could not find any sings of a hit. At that point, we decided to go back to the same spot where we had been predator calling from. After about 20-30 minutes of calling, we were ready to leave. We had a two mile hike back to camp and then we were headed home. I heard noises on the creek. We snuck up to the creek and big 'ol bear ran down the canyon and up the other side. I barely had time to turn the camera on at the very moment David shot. In slow motion, you can see the bear standing and then dropping in his tracks. He laid the bear out with one shot from my .308 and the bear was down! It was a last second bear literally. We were going nuts after the shot. I think that was obvious. This was also David's first bear. This hunt was 100% DIY public land hunting. No dogs. No guides. Strictly spot and stalk hunting. We were camped about two miles away and ate deer burritos for dinner every night and drank sweet tea in David's camper trailer. It was a blast.
