I am a .416 Rigby nut, and I can't touch that, even though my hunting load is HOT with a 350gr. TSX at 2900fps. Man, that looked like a prairie dog after being slammed by a .300 Win Mag!!! Love it! The Slow-Motion was AWESOME!

Very nice! You're right Mike all of it was great, a good spring bear, very nice bait set up, it funnels the bear right where you want him, and slam him as hard as you can. Just incredible how quick, and acrobatic they can be when hit, even hit that hard. I never get tired of watching them get slammed, watched it about 10x.

NOTHING beats Idaho hunting. NOTHING! Alaska expensive, mosquitos, and did I say expensive. We sure have it good here and this goes to prove it...

I'll put BC up against Idaho any day

Spring bear hunts can be miserable with bugs just about anywhere.
