    Tyler, my 13 year old, got his first Black Bear last night. Just shy of 5 foot long. Beautiful white patch on his chest. Little over 200 lbs.

    Wool in his belly... imagine that ;)

    made a great shot on him with the 7mm-08 and 139 SST's. 48 yard broadside, bear didn't go much over 30 yards. Found the bullet on the off side of the hide.
