    I've lived here 30 years now and find something new and special every year. I'm more impressed with the bear, I used to hunt bears a lot and shot the biggest one I've ever seen on my trail cams and haven't hunted since. It would have been the spring less heavy version of the one on your video. That is one healthy bear.

    Yeah, that bear was impressive. I could have easily have shot him with my bow had I had a bear tag. That's the closest I've ever been to a bear in the wild. We don't have too many of them here in MD. It's funny b/c on one of the trail cam videos, he's actually out of breath from picking on the carcass. I bet he's off sleeping fat and happy for the Winter.

    I'm interested in that albino? Canvasback in your avatar. Details?

    That picture is probably 25 years old. This particular canvasback showed up at a popular spot for filming ducks here in MD. Not a true albino, but some leucistic/color variant. I had a blind site near that spot, but never saw him while hunting.

    We archery hunt. Spent 21 days at elk camp( most of it while I was sick) so not a lot of hunting. I ranged a few bulls, drew on a few but never released an arrow
    6 days deer hunting, and well start waterfowl hunting as soon as the game shows up
    Checked trail cams got pics of elk, bear deer coyotes, fox, martin, crows ravaens ( 6000 pics ) vultures
    Two weeks elk muzzle loader season

    I sure miss archery hunting. After destroying my left shoulder in 2013 I still primarily shoot my shotgun one handed. I had to switch to a semi auto since I could use the pump on my 870 anymore. Not being able to shoot a bow greatly changed my desire to hunt big game.
