Tracking wounded bear: Moose's first find

This was Mooses first bear found dead. Moose was 15 months old. We found two before this one but they were less than dead and ran hard, and I believe recovered from their wounds.

This bear was found 22 hours after being shot with an arrow. The hunters had looked the previous evening and the next day until the blood went to nothing visible.

Moose found the arrow within one minute and the bear within 15 minutes. The terrain was very thick and had logs/brush etc. Moose manuvered through it like it was nothing but I didn't. I had to keep stopping him so I could get through. Most of the meat was recovered along with the hide.
