First Bear

14-year old Jensen and his older brother Jacob were hunting black bear on private land. They waited 3 hours before a bear showed up standing on it's hind legs and sniffing the air. A well-placed shot from a .308 rifle, and 30 minutes of tracking a short trail later, they found the 180 lb bear at the bottom of a creek bed.

 Shenandoah Smallie

Went fishing on the Shenandoah river with a friend. We came up on some moving water. I pictched my bait and she nailed it. I fought here for a few minutes before landing the fish. What an awesome fight! Nothing better than catching big smallies..The fish was caught on a Double D Custom Jigs hand dipped tube. A local Va bait maker out of Edinburg Va!
