Epic hunt at Chattahoochee WMA on Oct. 26 for Silas Mask, of Zebulon! Silas saw the bear and watched it for 30 minutes feeding in a clearcut food plot to make sure it wasn’t a young bear still with its mother. When he shot the bear, it ran and fell 8 feet from road. Later that morning, he shot the 11-point buck, aged at 6 1/2 by biologists. “As if this hunt couldn’t get any better, I was able to drag the buck downhill to where the bear was, back the truck up to the bank and roll them into the bed of the truck,” said Silas. The bear was a 112-lb. sow.

The lake at Unicoi State Park produced this 9-lb. largemouth for Alvin Crews.
