This was my second bear hunt in SASK,this one is been a long quest since I was booked for the second one since the end of the first in 2006.
Then I took a very nice blond young boar just after one hour on the first day.I decided to take the shoot on that 175#er because the rare color.The same day I saw from the same spot other 10 bear with some much bigger ones coming later and almost at dark.I used my Robertson Vision 65# with XX78 2219 and Zwickey 2 bl head.
Complete pass through and the bear made a short 30 ys.The reasons I delayed that much on the second hunt happened every year just prior of leaving.In 2007 my son had a very bad incident with his motorcycle going at school.It took a full 15 months for recovery competely.
Next year this old guys brooke a couple of ribs and some blood vessels on his leg, falling with his dirt bike,KTM 450 EXC, just 15 days before leaving.The third year my wife was diagnosticated of a breast cancer nad had to be operated ASAP.I am glad that this last May nothing bad happened.

As I arrived in SASKATOON after a very fatiguing trip and 3 airplanes taken(Milan-Frankfurt-Toronto-Saskatoon)I had the first highlight of this expedition.
I meet Steve Clandinin from SASK. and his son Lee.We had just changed a couple of PM here before meeting,but since he was there visiting his daughter,he took the time to meet me and spend a couple of hours together.We become right away good friends since the first hand shake.
We shared a lot of common points of wievs and stories.Once again I was impressed how many GREAT persons roam here and how lucky we are to have a chance to meet here everyday expecially for me that I live so far from the most of you.

The weather is not been really nice: cold,windy and rainy,the bears looked to be not really active.When we arrived the first day was sunny but that is been all the sun we had seen in a week.The previous day another bowhunter killed a beautyful 410# blacky and they found it the next day.

I was the only traditional archer on camp,but really focoused to show them how we can score.
A wheeler had problem with his equipment with the rest going by itself and this ended with 2 wounded bears not recovered before he realised that something was wrong.This things remind me how much more reliable are our bows,where semplicity is the key of success.

The bear was 225 with a nice fur.
I had a couple of better bear at range but they were not so good looking ones.
