The UPS & Downs of Bear Hunting

By Arliss McNalley

Aug 18, 2006 – 12:08:00 PM

Bear hunting for me is usually reserved
for springtime.  Although we have a provincial
fall season, it seems I?m always too busy hoping for mature ungulates to cross
my path on any god-given fall day.  Not
to mention the habitat I hunt during the fall is not conducive to bears.  Some folks will carry a ?just in case? bear
tag if there?s a reasonable chance to fill it in the midst of a moose or elk
hunt.  I might as well have a unicorn tag
in my pocket for all the bear I?d expect to see from my deer stand.  But with early fall a mere calendar page
away, many of you have your sight set on a heart-pounding stalk or determined
vigil for a mighty black bear.

Nothing pumps up the anxiety more
this time of year than a good bowhunting article, a digital copy of Monster
Bucks XXXXX or an inspiring on-line hunt at Bowhunting.Net. My condolences to
the outfitters, hunters, sponsors and viewers recently rooked out of an awesome
on-line Ontario
black bear hunt.  Tough pill to swallow,
for sure, but one that will make us stronger and wiser in the long run.  To curb the desensitization at,
and for all the fall bear hunters in the audience, here?s a little dose of ?up
and down? pre-season adrenaline to turn this ?downer? rightside ?up?!

(Don?t worry?the puns will all
make sense when you have a look at this very cool footage on BowKaddy!)
