    Very nice bear Len. Good shot, and good bear hunting story - with great photos too. Thanks for sharing.

    What an amazing hunt, thanks for the writeup! Beautiful country and bear.

    That 7mm Dakota with the lighter fluted barrel sure looks nice. How much does it weigh with the ATACR on top? I have that same scope on my 300 win mag and love it.

    Len,

    I'm curious about the specs/details for your 7mm Dakota. Will you share them with us?

    Nice story and detail of hunt. I am lucky to have been doing this for many years as I grew up in MT.Brought my son up doing the same, he is a bear nut. Very good bear.

    Great bear!! I will be hunting with Robb next May or June for bear. I have also signed up for mule deer and antelope. I am really looking forward to Robb helping me with my shooting. Your story is great and the challenge must have been wonderful.

    Congrats on your bear Len and a good story to boot! I'd love to submit a story, but no bullets means no story. Been trying for a year to get the 180 Hybrid to test. I think Berger runs out before they can reach the east coast :D
