My 1st record book bear

08' started great and finnished even better! This should be by first Oregon book bear. We roughed him out around high 19-low 20'' skull, Oregon book requires 18 1/8''.(found out with my first big bear after boiling the skull I ended up with1715/16'') no trick photography, he's gutted so we could get him in that 3 1/2' stump, and I have a 6' 1'' wingspan. ODFW aged him at 15 yrs old! I Never even knew they got that old. Hope you enjoyed the pics.

Re: My 1st record book bear

Factory Winchester Model 70 .270 wsm 150 gr fusions(before i started handloading) at 27 yds.I know its a long range site, but what would you do?
We were on our way to go glass across canyons and came around a point and stood strait up...so I shot him strait down.
My bi-pods got hung up on my randefinder lanyard while swinging my rifle onto the bear. As I looked in dis-belife I sware that bear looked me in the eye and laughed at me(and I dont blame him either). My buddy was mumbeling shoot! shoot damn it! The bear got tired of laughing at me I guess and turned to leave as my crosshairs went to his shoulder. Boom! He was pissed! and doin the funky chicken. So I dumped another into him strait on into where his throat and chest intersect. That finnished him. Neither bullet passed through. WOW
Ps You can see my 1st shot on the shoulder. The other sploych is not a butt shot, we had to gut him to get him up onto the stump for pics, and rolling around on a slope in the brush we rolled him onto the gut pile on accident. we cleaned him up some, but not enough I guess
