Nice shots what river/creek is that ?

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Wish I had that much land and woods to hunt on. Nice pics. Here in mississippi we don't see bears, but I've always wanted to get one with a bow. On tv they always shoot them with their heads in a food barrel, how do yall hunt them. Is that the main way to hunt bears. The only bear I ever seen was a grizzly at a wild life show in memphis. I think his name was Charlie.

That waterway is the Allegany River (southern tier). Primetime walleye/bass fishing in the spring summerish. Followed a bear around but lack of snow made it hard to track. When a little more snowfall comes it will help.

If you have any fruit trees or anything sweet up there that would be a great place to look.
