On my return with my pack containing lights, tracking tape, knives, rubber gloves etc. I get to the spot where he wheeled and ran into the bush. I'm still surprised at not being able to find any blood. Through the years I have worked at trying to improve my tracking skills and take pride in being patient and not leaving one sign before I can see something else that I consider a positive, leaf, grass moved, dirt disturbed,possible track etc.

For the first 15 or 20 feet I cannot see blood. I am moving based based on "other evidence" at about 20 or 25 feet I see it, the first drop of blood!! I'm now excited that I have acually got confirmation I'm on the right track. ( I't pretty thick back in there and you really cannot see the ground for all of the dead spruce laying on the ground. As I stand up to stretch and delight at finding blood, I'm even more pleased to see the bear laying about 50 feet ahead!!

On dressing him out I found the 160 grain Snuffer had almost split the heart in two and had taken out the lungs on the way. The ground was soaked wherer he lay but I guess with no pump working there was not a lot of blood pressure to produce what I was looking for.

Wish I was a better photographer.

Although that one was a much as I cared to drag out by myself, I suppose I could go get help if I really needed it. If this one gives me a shot I just might!

Yohon: Yes, here in New Brunswick you can get two tags a year for residents.
I haven't been in the woods since Friday other than to freshen bait but I'll keep you all posted as to how things go. I'll be focused on Bears until I get the next one or the end of October when I switch gears to Whitetail mode.

Congrats !
When you take your kid hunting and he says thank you and tells you how much he loves being in the woods with you, your day just isn't going to get any better than that.
