Pa Bear.

This story starts out tues morning of pa bear season.I was by myself.So i went to one of our LR spots just more or less to glass for deer season.I had my 300 rum set up so if i caught one in the hollow below me i felt safe taking that shot myself(500 yards)Was there about two hours when two older fellows showed up and we talked for about ten minutes.And low and behold.A bear crossed the gasline below us and i went for the gun.spun 5.5 minutes on the nikon and no shell in the gun.Ran to my jeep got the shells and the bear was gone.Told the two guys someone get on that gun.They thought i was joking.I convinced them i wasnt.One of them did.The bear crossed the creek and started up the other side.600,650,675,700,725 then stopped at 750 yards.I spun the clicks and he sent the 210 berger on the way.This was the outcome.341 POUNDS.And one very happy guy.And i didnt even know his name at the time....

Re: Pa Bear.

Nice job all the way around. I'm guessing you are on the left in the picture, since you mentioned older guys. I don't see any grey hair on you.
