Hunting bear with a stick and a string is a thing that only real men, and real women do.  These hunters are fearless hunters, stalking some of the biggest predators in North America. However, the combination of a big bear and the loss of shooting light can turn even the most secure archer’s courage into nervous tremors.  Necessity is the mother of invention, they say, and Jay was experiencing a serious necessity!
