I've not been fortunate enough to see a color phase bb yet. Congratulations to you!

Just curious why the big gun for black bear though?

Re: Bear Meets 375 Rum Pics!

Thanks Carl, I tried looking up the wyoming record too but had no luck. When He got up I was suprised because the 375 flattened him so fast but he was up in an instant and dissappeared, I was pretty sure he was not going anywhere too far away with a lengthwise .375 hole in him. Where he turned to leave it looked like someone had turned a skid-steer around in that spot, apparently he was in a hurry!

Derek, I actually only had 1 bear on my site this year that wasnt a color Phase, the Game Warden said a lot of color phase bears have been taken this year.

Re: Bear Meets 375 Rum Pics!

I'm disappointed it took me this long to hear about your good luck (Out of state for work).

I was pulling for ya, that is awesome you lucky dog.......

Good decision on the mount in the same stance as you shot, I really like that idea. I got some pretty good laughs at the "why the big gun?" question.

I'll answer that for Mike, "Why the heck not?" Gotta get blood on it sometime


Well done Mike,

I didnt see the "why the big gun" question Outlaw pretty much answered for me. The motor head guys say "There is no replacement for displacement" well I agree. I dont know why that is even a question. When choosing a gun I ask only one question "Is it big enough" cause too big doesnt exist.

Can I get a amen!

The crushing effect of big calibers has to be seen to be believed. Many calibers will kill game big calibers just do it better.
