Re: MT Bear Questions

Never underestimate a 308. It will be fine. Black bears don't need alot of killing. As far as skinning goes I could give you some good advice. Rather chat on the phone though. If you would like to talk, let me know. I have skinned alot of bears for myself and several friends.

Re: MT Bear Questions

Your .308 will work fine for the black bear, they're not a hard animal to put down, as with anything, it's shot placement.
As for making a rug, any reputable taxidermist should be able to take care of that. Depends on what part of the state you are in, there are some good ones around Bozeman, Helena, and Missoula.
As for field dressing, I am making an assumption that you would do it just as if you were dressing a trophy deer or elk, and only cut the belly up to the ribs, and work from there, but I am not sure.

You better hurry though, season opens Sunday!! Good Luck!!
