Geez a myriad of mistakes by young whipper snappers who think they know it all and then try to bust on their elders.
In my defense....

I was the last one invited on the mountain, and figured I would be the last one to take a shot. Therefore, I brought my glass only. When I arrived on the mountain, I was informed by the landowner that whoever spots a bear, has the opportunity to shoot or pass. No worries, I was in the company of friends, who were world class shooters and rifle builders... I can read a range card. The range card given to me at the start of the party was not the correct range card for the rifle. The person that gave me the said range card is the person that owned the rifle. Days after the incident, it was finally figured out that the range card was incorrect.

Morale of the story....trust no one, especially if they are old, senile, and now physically challenged like you are.

You have no defense.......

No the moral of the story is "Old age and treachery will always beat youth and enthusiasm! "

You were so excited to go hunt you "forgot" your gun and now trying to blame the magnanomous elder who was trying very hard to mentor the "Little Grasshopper". You failed to grasp the Lesson "Bring your own gun"!_

The wrong range card story was made up and finally told to you so you would quit crying over your rookie mistake.

It is obvious you are not yet able "to grasp the pebble from his hand".

Aagh the the never ending wonders of youth and naivety.

Bet you have never heard magnanimous and a reference to "BB" used in the same sentence before have you?

Just blew the "Little Grasshopper's" mind didn't it?

I know its not a 6.5 but a braked 243 would work well. I know there not fancy or glorious at all but there's a reason a lot of kids start off with one. Low recoil in a light gun and with the right bullet would work really well up to 600 on whitetail

Which means in your case you will shoot over the bear again.

Tsk tsk oh one of such possible greatness to be trapped by the feeble rantings of youth.
