I hope you save a few bears for future hunts.
There are plenty bear in this area .
We're maybe 1/2 mile from the Shenendoah National Park in a holler down off the park that very little hunting is allowed . And there are two orchards and a vineyard . The orchard we're hunting on is maybe 6 acres and we were given permits for 5 bear and 50 deer !
There are two we know of over 250 pounds and one of these is closer to 350 I believe however these two are night travelers . And while it's okay for us to shoot them at night using lights I don't care to go that route .
