I've drawn tags twice.
Killed one with the muzzleloader (after trying with the bow up till the last day I could hunt, then switched to the muzzleloader)back in 2003.

Drew again in 2008, bowhunted, but never scored. :(

I've never applied for a tag. I did film a buddy twice over bait and tagged along with the dog hunters. The dog hunting was exciting and action packed. I will tag along again sometime.
I might try it sometime. I'd like to get a rug!

One permit in 2006, one bear! Now 4 years later, I'm at it again! :D I've been bear baiting with my Dad and uncles since I was old enough to remember!

I've been on a number of bear hunts with the video camera, but only had a tag once so far, but looking to double my stats again this year in Nova Scotia :mrgreen: 8-)

I have only had one tag, back in 1999. I shot it with a .270 at about ten steps while it was fighting with 3 dogs. I had to run close to mile to catch up with the bear and dogs on that one. It gets the heart pumping.

I will have my 2nd next year and then my third will probably go to my son who should be about 14 by then. But the nice thing with hound hunting is you get to have the experience every year.

Two hunts and two bears in New Brunswick. Hoped for a bow bear but when you get down to the last day with no good shot ops, well it's just too tempting to break out the slug gun!! Both I shot with my 12ga and both would have been picture perfect bow shots :cry: . Planning on an Idaho hunt next spring for color phase.

Ive killed three all with my bow and have been lucky enough to have all of them on video. I shot all of them in NE Minnesota. I have 8 WI points but spend all my vacation time whitetail hunting so moral of this story. I need more vacation time. haha

A big fat 0! but hopefully that will change, I have 9 points in WI. I am going to look into going for a kill tag next year. I'm working at finding some places to hunt.
