My 2012 Idaho blonde phase black bear....

Hey Guys,
Got a few photos of the blonde bear I killed this spring. Also a photo of me with my cousins black bear which was a way bigger bear. This is my 7th bear and bear hunting is my favorite thing in the whole world. I also have a WY bear tag so the hunting will not stop yet.
Anyway, I took this bear even though it was small for the color. Watched it for about 20 minutes so I had plenty of time to make my choice. At about 125 yards it gave me a good broadside shot and I took it. That day I was carrying my 300 Win Mag stuffed with 190 grain Hornady BTSP. Broke both shoulders and hit the ground dead in its tracks. You will see the photo of the exit hole. Fantastic bullet. My cousin also killed his with a 300 Win Mag. He was shooting the 190 Berger and hit his in the neck. Lights out.
Now its on to WY to look for a real bruiser. Anyone else with some dead bears this spring?

    I killed one just like your blonde a few years ago ago and my buddy killed one that looked about the same this spring. I'm going up today to check our bait. We've had a big blackie on it along with a cinnamon that has some blonde in it. The cinnamon came in while we were there last week but spooked for some reason before I got a shot.

    Iam hunting CO twice this year, a B tag, private land, suppose to be lot of cinnamon and choc bears with an occasional blonde, then I plan on doing the OTC with caps which is an A tag so maybe I will get my blonde, got a few black and a nice HUGE choc but blonde is the one I want.

    Congrats on 2 fine bears

    Nice bears. I also killed a color phase bear this year with a 300 Win.

    My thread is under Trophy Photos.
