Bear video and gun sighting

This Sunday read about award winning author, photographer, and big game hunter Richard P. Smith's video, "Field Judging Black Bears."
The time and effort that went into producing this video will not only make you a better hunter but a more informed one when it comes to judging the size of bears.
Nothing comes easy and trying to tell if a bear is a shooter or not is going to take several looks of the video along with good field experience.
Hiring a qualified and experienced guide would, in my opinion, be essential. From past discussions with Smith, I know he has personally used guides on some of hunts.
Hunting is what this time of the year is all about. And getting ready for it involved checking firearms and at least running a patch down the barrel.
Getting to the range for some shooting is a good idea too. The Oakland County Sportsmen's Club will host Hunter Sight in Days, open to the public.
Dates and hours are Oct. 23-24, 30-31, and Nov. 6-7. All times are 10a.m.-5p.m. For further information call the club at (248) 623-0444, Tues.-Sat.
