Re: Black Bear Cal. question

i would recommend the slug gun, 3" brieneke black magics if your gun can shoot 3". They are very devistaing round on black things with fangs,and claws. This is the round i carry here in AK, there are plenty of blackies have fallen to these wonderful rounds. Also look for the federal they shoot good also. My camp gun is a marine grade 870 with 18" barrell it is not a precision gun but out to 100 yards with factory bead sight i can hit a group size of the end of a beer can with the brienekes. The 1oz+ really wakes them up. hopes this helps

    I have lost 2 bears with a 32 front shoulder shots so I switched to 444 marlin.
    I have used it from NB to Alberta for Blacks under 150 yard and haven't lost one with it yet.

    I also have use the 12 guage rifled slugs out of tree stands with great success.

    While most black bears are only around 150 lbs. PA bears can run very large. I just moved from PA and bears 500 lbs and more are taken every year. There is a big difference taking on a black bear that size over an average sized bear. PA bears like to hang out in very thick heavy cover so both for recovery and stopping the bear quickly more is better! I carried an Ithica Deerslayer III with Dixie Terminator slugs.
