Ethan, Rob and Jesse get together for a Bear hunt in Northern Idaho. We recap the hunt almost nightly, only interrupted  by the occasional bloodtrail , sick kid, and concerning text. We do however manage to discuss how the importance of pictures in the industry has become more important than proper field care of game animals. The willingness to chance game meat spoiling to capture great hero photos. The subject of Ozonics comes up as well as we try to outsmart our quarry on this particular hunt.
