like pushing a button now
flirtpole stick is 7 feet long. When I brace the butt against the sole of my boot it creates a springpole effect. He's swinging near a foot off the ground now and holding fast. I am pleasantly surprised by his progress.
ouch! poor bear... I think we're just about ready for a longer pole and a bigger lure here...
I expect he'll be on the bitearm within a month or so.
