My bear hunt was a thrill; it was not easy to get a black bear. It took two days to get one, but on the final day I got one. She was a dandy with a white v on her chest. She was 250 pounds alive. I was so happy, so was Bill JR, Brains twin brother. Brain died in the war. His dad bill gave me his points for a bear hunt. All the guys came and threw me on there back like I was sack a of potatoes. I thank Larry a lot and the guys for their hard work, there dogs did a good job. I cried
That day I got that bear. I never shut up, my voice was shot. I still talk about the bear. This was one of the best hunts I have been on yet. Larry is such a joker with you, he makes you cry; we always have a good time. there's lots of history between me and Larry. Larry is a cool guy to be around. Don't meet too many guys like Larry. I have so much fun with Larry. Saturday we chased a 400-pound bear I learned lots of things that day. Joel, one of the hunters said to me hunting is just not about killing a bear, it's just a bonus, and hunting is a time spent with your friends and family to be outdoors. It was like I was Bill Jr.s LITTLE brother, he was my big brother. I know that Brain is gone but he died as a hero and he will always be in our harts and thoughts. 24 is way too young to die, his life was just beginning. If he was not there that day 28 men would have died too. I know how Bill feels to lose a loved one. Bill and Bill Jr are really nice guys. To have news channel 12 interview us was cool, I had always wanted to be on TV. Not too many kids like get to go on a bear hunt like I did. To see Bill Jr.s face lit up made me feel really happy this hunt I won't forget in my life.
HUNTING IS A GREAT SPORT. I LIKE A LOT I GO DEER HUNTING EVERY YEAR WITH MY DAD, WE HAVE A REALLY GOOD TIME. I THANK BILL FOR GIVEING ME HIS SONS POINTS FOR THE BEAR HUNT THIS YEAR. BEAR HUNTING IS REALLY A COOL THING TO DO THIS TIME OF YEAR; I WOULD LIKE TO GO AGAIN SOME TIME IN MY LIFE TIME. KIPPENBERG CREEK FOR KIDS IS A RALLY COOL PLACE TO GO HUNT, FISH, ATV RIDES AND PLAY BOARD GAMES. I WILL KEEP GOING THERE UNTIL I DIE THESE KIDS ARE LUCKY FOR KIPINBERG CREEK BECAUSE WITH OUT THIS PLACE WE WON'T BE ABLE TO GO HUNTING, FISHING, ATV RIDES, AND ALL SORTS OF COOL STUFF. LARRY AND HIS WIFE LORRY OR SO REALLY NICE TO YOU WHEN YOU GET TO KIPINBERG CREEK YOU DON'T WANT TO LEAVE THAT PLACE KIPINBERG CREEK HAS A SPECIAL PLACE IN OUR HEARTS. I CRY A LOT WHEN WE LEAVE KIPINBERG CREEK FOR KIDS. THIS PLACE REALLY ROCKS MY WORLD HARD.
