Not really sure how I've never heard of this site until recently. Been hunting in San Diego/ Imperial Counties for the last 18 years. Anyway, seems like a cool site. I spend some time on TOF as well. Thought I'd post a picture of a bear I killed this year on a backpack bowhunt up north. Spotted him about a half mile from our camp. Was able to stalk within 52 yards of him and sunk and arrow in him. My first bear. Used to rifle hunt but was recently diagnosed with a disease caused by the "archery bug".

Welcome to the site. It looks like you got the right stuff. I too was diagnosed with the disease caused by the "archery bug” back in 2003. This time of year it really flares up. I find it helps to get outdoors often, go on long hikes, climb trees, and eat red meat. We have a support group here for others suffering from the same affliction. We meet every weekend in the A22 area.

Great looking Bear. He looks like he would make book easy. Are you in CBH?

Are you signed up for the big buck contest?

Yep, a member of CBH. I'm in contact with a local measurer for my bear and buck from last year. Here is my a-22 buck from last year. Not in the big buck contest. If I read it correctly I needed to sign up before the season started. I have A-22 and AO tags. Am I too late?

welcome aboard and that's some great work. You should share those pics in the general sections in the photos topic. That is some impressive stuff.

Not sure. I think you’re right about the contest.

A22 and AO…………. I like your commitment to the bow. That’s a great buck. I shot the same style buck in 2010. They could be related. I'm guessing your's is about 93 inches Net? Was I close?

HA! I'd say those bucks are brothers. Not sure what he scores. I will do that when I get my bear skull measured. What is minimum score for CBH?

They even have the same shade of red lipstick on.

80 inches for Pacific Hybrid bucks and 16 inches for bears. If you have the bear scull you can do a rough score yourself with two bookends. You measure how long and how wide and add them together.

I think that buck might qualify for CBH. I shot another buck in 2010 that is very similar. I'll post a picture when I get home. I already roughed scored the bear skull it its about 20". I think its a 60 day drying period then I'll have him officially scored.

Dude! Your bear will score very high in the CBH book if it's in the 20 inch range! That will also make P&Y and B&C!

Your bucks will both make it with ease.

Nice job on the bear. Like Lungpopper said you don't hear many stories of spot and stalk bears and at 20" that is a monster for an archery black bear.
