About three years ago we were hunting Tensas and my brother had one climb the tree next to him. He said when it saw him it froze, and he waved at it. Said it shimmied back down the tree and ran off so fast it wasn't even funny!

quote: Here is one I had on camera at our place about 7 miles west of woodville on Hwy 24. I have another pic somewhere of one with a collar on. They are always messing with or looking at my camera when it takes a pic. weird
We have quite a few of them closer to Pickneyville...
I was on the stand with a 45-70 and 3 bullets 2 years ago and a black bear came and sat down about 100 yards away close to dark. I shot in its direction before I would get out of the stand but it came right back... Shot a little closer in its direction and it finally took off. Kept that gun loaded the whole time on the way back to the bike.
