For many of us, just seeing a bear in the woods would make our season. One fortunate young hunter had much more than that happen and was happy to share the story.
You may recall a few months back a young man named Dylan Howe helped with some retriever training and appeared in a column. He is the lucky fella Iím writing about and his first bear hunt was surely one to remember. I still havenít seen a bear in the woods and am not sure I want to see one the way he did.
Dylan is an avid hunter and fisherman and says he hunts for food not for sport and aspires to be a guide in the future. He told me this as we prepared for a day of retriever training and asked if I would help get the information together for guide school. I told him I would be happy to help. I called him a few days later and gave him the information so he could prepare for the classes. We hadnít talked for a while, when out of the blue he called. I missed it, so he sent me a text message with a picture of himself and the bear. When I saw it I had to call and get the story.
