Re: Brown Bear Down!

I did not have a set of scales on me big enough to weigh him but they say a mature brown bear weighs in at about 1500 lbs. my bear did not have a lot of fat on him so maybe 1300 lbs? He seemed to weigh every bit of that while trying to get him out of the creek.

Congrats on a terrific brown bear!

Mighty big skull and also looks like a great hide. You shot well, and it seems that Nosler bullet treated you right.

Congratulations!

Re: Brown Bear Down!

Awesome bear. What a thrill!!

How the hell do you get a 1300lb bear out of a creek like that??? Surely there had to be some equipment involved. Doesn't look like anything stout enough around there to rig up a block and tackle and I don't think a few dudes tugging on him would do it.

Congrats!!
