2010 Interior Grizzly

Chased this grizzly for nearly four miles before I got a good shot at 200 yards and put him down. The color got him shot. Something about those blonde interior grizzlies with chocolate legs. They make pretty rugs. He may have only scored 15 and 100 pounds soaking wet but he is pretty and a grizz. I did wipe the milk from his lips before taking the picture. Actually he is much bigger and is a nice interior bear. They just look like babies next to the big bears that have a salmon stream nearby. Rifle was a 338 win mag with 185 grain Barnes TTSX at 3220 fps. Bullet entered last rib and exited the off side shoulder crushing the shoulder bones. The bear dropped at the shot and kicked a couple times before expiring. The bullet performed perfectly I assume. Very dead bear but the bullet is out on the tundra somewhere. I have many killer bullets saved but none are Barnes. They always blow right through never to be seen again.

The boar grizzly was aged at 5-6 years by game and fish. Estimated weight by me and the outfitter was about 350 pounds. Dragging/rolling him over and skinning him felt about like a 350 pound hog to me. but we had no scales. The outfitter kills a lot of interior bears though and is pretty good at it. They are not as big as many say.

Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future

    Congratulations! That's a good looking bear.

    Someday when I grow up I want to hunt a grizzly! Okay... at 54, I'm grown up, but I still want to hunt a grizzly someday. What a beautiful rug that bear will make! Please post a photo of the rug when it's done...
