Montana Birthday Bear

Yesterday after an early Birthday BBQ dinner with some of my Montana friends, my fiancÚ and I headed out to go look for a black bear. Mostly we planned on just a leisure drive and check a couple short trails but after spotting a nice bear going to one of the trails our plans changed and we made a game plan. I had told her she had first choice when we find a worthy bear. We closed the distance I looked him over on more time to ensure he was in fact a mature boar and thats when she looked at me and said " Happy Birthday you shoot" from what i could see I tried to tell her how big he was but she insisted I shoot. The first shot he stepped right as i shot and the hit was a little back, he took off but stopped after 50 yards and I high shouldered him. We got to him and got some pics unfortunately he rolled down a draw and was caked with mud and soaked from the water. The pics didnt turn out as well as I hoped but we did get a few I liked.

    very cool, good size melon on him and looks like a white chest patch? I have one that looks very similar in color. Love a good bear story... Nice video too.

    Haha after he rolled into the creek and was soaked he did look a little grizzly like but he's not I can assure you that. And the MFWP warden probably wouldn't have been so nice when I checked him in lmfao
