Bear season in MN. starts Sept. 1st and baiting begins Aug. 14. A couple of years ago a close freind of mine and his 13 year old boy were shot and killed by a scumbag home intrusion. His wife was critically shot also as her son lay dying in her arms. She was hospitalized for about a year and lost her left arm. She was hit with a shotgun slug. Father and son are greatly missed, especially during deer season when they would come up and hunt. They held a benefit auction in they're home town for her huge medical bills. I donated a Bear hunt for two. The gentleman that won the bid pulled a permit this year as did I so I thought I would post the progress through the hunt from beginning to end complete with pics. Hope everyone enjoys.
