I had a couple questions for Montana hunters (but I welcome all advice from hunters from everywhere)... I got my Black Bear Tags and am waiting for season but before it starts i wanna make sure I'm good to go...
Question 1. I use a .308 remington 700 for just about everything.... Will this work for Bear (first season bear hunting).
Question 2. Field cleaning a bear? where do I start...?
Question 3. IF I get a bear who can put the son of a gun into a rug shape?
Thanks for the advice/answers in advance. Happy Hunting and God Bless America!
Rifle is just fine. Gut like a deer, I overcut hide on deer,just straight slit on bear. I work w/local taxidermist in my area,2 I like. You need to skin proper or have it done by someone who knows. Hide needs to be salted or kept cold, bears are prone to slipping. I skin mine in field usually and leave skull and paws in,until at camp or home, then cape. In MT you have to go to F&G and get bear tagged.Proof of sex and skull, in 5 days
