Had the pleasure of glassing a cut, seeing a doe on high alert looking the other direction as a buck busted out. He ended up just over 200 yards and at the shot, he ran low and down a ravine. I hustled up and looped downhill to see if I could cut him off or see him down. Blood was thin but after the recent rains I could track him pretty good. As the blood on the ground had clotting, I knew he'd be close and I started to hear noises just below me. I crept closer and found a hunter standing over my deer. A bear laid claim to it and was doing its best to rip open the guts. All 4 paws were on the deer and wasn't giving him up. Small bear and after some words, he split, coming back 3 other times while I was cutting the buck up. Late season deer and a lucky bear.
