Thanks. When I decided to go to Alberta and give the color phase thing one more try, I sure wasn't fussy about which color but if I had to choose, the blond was what I would have preferred.
Indeed, I've been blessed.
Thanks again for the nice comments.

I don't know what else to say other than thanks so much. Compared to so many other TG members, a hunt like this was small potatoes. Yet, like I said on the Pow Wow, it's been seven months and I still cannot believe it actually happened. Here's a link to the story on the Pow Wow ... a few pics and a video are posted there. http://tradgang.com/noncgi/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=123853
Thanks so much for all the kind words. Really appreciated. I hope that I can return the favor for each of you down the road.

Jerry - I was in a ladder stand, 9 feet up, 11 yards from the barrel. I asked my outfitter if he'd allow hunting from the ground as I did it in Manitoba in 08' but he wasn't wild about the idea.

In retrospect, it may have been a good idea. I was literally surrounded by bears, all night, every night. Had bears constantly climbing up my stand, more out of curiosity than anything else. Never felt at all threatened by it but you had to keep stay on your toes because there was always one or more checking you out at the bottom of the stand.

Just seconds before I shot my bear, I was "shoo-ing" a really big black one off my ladder as he was rattling the stand around. I was also a little bit afraid he'd run off my bear. Somehow managed to get it done. [Razz] Russ Thornberry was sitting with me and he got it all on tape. I've only watched it 2,393 times since I've been home. [Smile]

It was truly the bear hunt of a lifetime. Just an amazing place to bear hunt for sure!

Thanks again to all for the kind words.
