Story: On the second day of the Oklahoma bear archery season, this nice black bear came in and I got a broadside shot at 35 yards. I made a good double-lung shot and he piled up in the brush about 30 yards away out of sight, but I heard him go down. It was just me and my wife Patty in deer camp that morning so we had quite a time getting that big bear field dressed and loaded on my four-wheeler! .................:)
