NEITHER TIME NOR WEATHER HAD PERMITTED A SIGHTER IN 'ER WITH MY FA 454 MNP STALKER UNTIL JUST A WHILE AGO. I CANNOT RECALL PROBLEMS BEFORE WITH MY REVOLVER SCOPES NEEDING RE-SIGHTING IN AFTER LONG FLIGHTS WITH SEVERAL PLANE CHANGES, PLUS THE SHOOTING DISTANCES WOULD BE SHORT, SO I WAS NOT TOO CONCERNED, BUT "YOU NEVER KNOW". I SET UP AN IMPROVISED REST OF A ROLL OF PAPER TOWELS WRAPPED IN A PLASTIC BAG RESTED ON A PORCH LEDGE, PUT ON THE WOOL GLOVES I WILL HAVE ON AND SHOOT WITH IN THE BEAR STAND, AND LET ONE GO @ 50 YARDS. CLOSE ENUFF TO DEAD CENTER TO PUT MY MIND AT EASE - SEE PICTURE.

WEDNESDAY, DAY 5: JIM CHECKED GATES CREEK TODAY, IT HAS NOT BEEN HIT SINCE BEFORE WE SAT THERE ON DAY 3. JIM AND I CHECKED RIVER#2 TODAY AND IT HAS BEEN HIT (GEORGE AND I CHECKED IT ON DAY 2 AND IT HAD NOT BEEN HIT YET). WE WILL DO A SIT AT RIVER#2 THIS EVENING, SHOT TO THE MAIN BAIT IS ONLY ABOUT 25 YARDS. GEORGE'S 4 WHEELER AND 4 WHEELER TRAILER (THE ONE WE PULL BEHIND THE 4 WHEELER) ARE FIXED SO WE ARE AT FULL STRENGTH EQUIPMENT WISE.

WEDNESDAY, DAY 5, 2 TO GO: GOT TO RIVER#2 ABOUT 6:15 P.M. AND SPOOKED A BEAR ON BAIT. I DID NOT GET A REAL GOOD LUCK AT IT BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS NOT VERY BIG. PUT OUT MORE BAIT AND WERE SET UP BY 6:45 P.M., WE SAT UNTIL MIDNIGHT. AT 8:15 A YOUNG SOW CAME IN AND HUNG AROUND AND ATE UNTIL 9:35 (1 HOUR AND 20 MINUTES). AT FIRST IT WAS NEAT BUT AFTER A WHILE IT WAS LIKE WATCHING JAVELINAS EAT YOUR DEER CORN (SOME OF YOU TEXAS GUYS WILL KNOW WHAT I MEAN). THAT WAS ALL WE SAW. DRY AND COLD, BUJT NOT TOO COLD, AND I HAD PUT ON AN XTRA LAYER, SO I WAS OK.

LOL. Yep, I know exactly that feeling. It's right up there with a family of racoons...

Good luck Rey - Hope you see one to your liking.
