my bear kill video and some more bear watching

So, here's the first time I've put a bullet into the shoulder area of any animal and it didn't stay down. I did not have the same view as the cameraman so I never knew it was flopping around until he told me, then every time I got a glimpse of it and ready to shoot he would disappear. This is like a parallel to what Kirby posted in 2009. The video speaks for itself. The 180 AB hit right where I was aiming and passed through. It took a f/u shot even though when I got closer to the bear it was gurgling blood. Don't know how he managed to survive. Lungs had 2 big holes each and the shoulder bone was cracked. No clue how he survived the first hit as long as he did.

Second shot. That's hunting:

After the kill and loading him:

    Well done Derek!!!

    I think I need to review Ian's scapula shot theory.

    Between Kirby's discussion and your demonstration some rethinking may be useful.

    Very informative videos. Thanks a ton for the extra effort.

    Thanks Roy. 'bear' in mind this is the first time ever any game animal wasn't expired immediately with the same shot. It does anchor them no question. First shot left nice golf ball sized holes in the top third of the lungs.

    More bear watching filmed by the landowner. The last bear got too close. He had to throw his hat at it.

    Very nice bear and good shooting. Some just dies easier than others.

    Yes I learned that this year. I can't tell you how many bears I've taken with the same shot placement and they never survived like this guy. My best guess in the bullet, an Accubond, may have split? I have no clue but I wanted to post the reality of this shoulder shot, no sugar coating anything.

    Really interesting and will make one think about shot placement.
    Thanks for sharing
