Bear hunting has been very good hereabouts, this season. Among the successful shooters is 14 year-old Taylor Johnson. He and his dad, Dean, built two baited locations. Taylor scored by taking a 200-pound blackie at 7:05 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 3rd near Height Of Land Lake. Dean and Irene Johnson live in a rural location, where they encourage hunting, shooting, and marksmanship. Apparently, Taylor has learned his lessons early, as he's scored on his first try at bear hunting.
