Re: Bear hunt success photos.

More Ballistic tip stuff.

Shot a nice Muley a couple of years ago @ about 110 yds w/one. Entered just ahead of the right hip and stuck under the hide just behind the left front shoulder. Went through a lot of deer. Instant harvest. Great wound channel. Regrived jacket with core.

Have found that Nosler jackets seem to be a bit "harder" than some others.

Will post results of buch hunt in a couple of months and reconfirm things.

iron worker,
You should have plenty of gun whichever of those calibers you decide upon. Just use a good bullet.
Yes I am getting the hide tanned.
Haven't eaten any of it yet but should be good, as good as bear gets.

Re: Bear hunt success photos.

Hey Iron worker what part of Northern California are ya gonna be hunting in?

I nearly had a bear last weekend with my bow. He was 32 yards when he spotted me and took off. He never offered a clean shot.

I took a bear a couple of years ago with my 243 and it was such a stinky mess getting him out of the wilderness area I told myself that I would never shoot another one with my rifle. I just don't see the point of shooting them with rifles but whatever tickles your fancy.

I get my tickles from shooting them with arrows and having them turn and look ya in the eye when they growl.

7MMmag man I'm going to either Siskou mountian Range or Klamath Nationl Forest.I'm expecting this to be a lot of hard work,especialy if we go to the Siskous.Shot him with a 243! Where did you hit him? In thge head? How many shots did it take? How far?
