Sweet 30-30 & NC mtns. black bear

This week I have spent 3 days with a great group of western NC bear hunters. Yesterday I walked 8 miles thru the mtns. & maily uphill both ways it seems staying in front of the dogs. Every hunter was toating lever action 30-30s with iron sights. There was one 45-70 lever gun. 2 hunters killed bears - one was 350#s & one was 370#s. Both bears were viscious to the dogs harming 7 different dogs and one had to be carried out. The bear last night was shot at 5 yards by a youngster with his 30-30. When the bear came around a rock ledge and saw the boy he said the bear laid is ears back & the boy then laid him out. Notice the hole in the shoulder done by the 30-30. Notice the fat on the back of this beast and notice the ground rooted up by hogs.

    Yes grew up their, chased bear with a win 94 in 30-30 a early 50's model .......still have it.
    Every 01 OCT was the first day of bear season. Always liked the 170gr Silvertip WW ammo.

    Really miss the squirrel hunting and spring trout season in Brown mountain.




    Nice Bear

    Nice looking bear, and thanks for the story too

    Glad the kid dropped the bear before he got dropped by the bear!

    5 yards would be a little too close!
