Re: I shot a bear!!!

I certainly understand where you are coming from. I personally know of a tragic incident in my own state that ended up in a man shootin his own son.
That is not what is going on here,these guys are in a place that affords them the ability to discern whether there are any problems with taking their shot, be it a shot to spook an animal into view or to shoot the same animal once in view.
I think the problem is the same as it always is when you post on the internet , that is ,others can not see what you see., and few of us can put into words on a screen that will translate what was going on without room for error.Please forgive me if I have offended you in any way by this response .

A brush shot is shooting at something you can't see period...

Re: I shot a bear!!!

4 scenarios:

a) Your dad's shots are ignored by the bear
b) Terrified, the bear leaves it's hide and exposes itself to you
c) The bear is wounded by your dad with 5" of daylight left
d) Someone becomes the unintended recipient of your dad's fire (as noted above)

If you cannot see and positively ID what you intend to hit...your finger should be nowhere near the trigger. Congratulations on a successful hunt...I hope I'm never in the same woods as you and your father.

I thought the same thing about the brush shooting, but lets give the young man a chance to explain.

Re: I shot a bear!!!

sniper2, Elroy, MC, everyone,
Shooting into the bush was wrong, is wrong and will always be wrong. Remington_25_06 is a young man that I believe means well. He has already been corrected and admonished. There is no need to cut him to pieces and the fact that there would not be a bear in a bush socializing with human beings is something the helps our minds to back off. Yes it was wrong... he knows it, let's not forget we all have made wrong choices.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

Re: I shot a bear!!!

We have all been young and excited about a buck or a bear. The young fellow probably won't do it again. My point would be I think the Dad was the one making the error. As hunting fathers we all need to think first, then think second, and then act. What we give them in ethics and knowledge is going to be passed along. Congratulations, non the less, young fella.
