2 days of hunting

My buddy and I went out out friday morning and got these 2 black tail. They were about 200 yards out. We were both shooting tikka 270wsm. I got this big black bear last night about an hour before dark. He was 510 yards shot with my 338 lapua. He measures 6'3" and was in the 400# neighborhood

    Pounded the coast range of central California when I was young hunting Blacktail and 4 pointers were rare. I have 3. The one on the right with the cheater would have been considered a really good buck even back in those days.

    Good goin nice bucks both!

    Nice! I have limited knowledge on blacktails, but from what I've seen those are pretty dandy!
    That black bear looks like he was coughin a lot of blood. Lungs? What bullet and bullet performance?

    yes it was a lung shot. I am shootin 300 grain bergers at 2720 fps. The bullet was a strait thru devastating shot. I am very pleased with the performance of them. The deer I am happy with also I have one that is bigger than these. Deer of this size are few and far between.
