Let see the 2023 spring bear success

The boys and I have had a great season thus far. I took my youngest son out for a weekend trip early in the season and he took his first bear.

Two weeks later both boys and I flew into the back country for a week of hunting. We were all fortunate enough to get bears.

So the top bear was taken with a 300 ultramag, 210 berger at 450 yards...

The next was also a 300 Ultramag, 185 Berger at about 20 yards....

The last bear (mine) was with a 260 ackley and 140 gold dot, under 20 yards..

The close shots just worked out that way.,.

The 260 ackley got it done with one shot.. The ultramags took 2.. :)
Not my bear, but my buddy won an auction at the CO SCI banquet for a Canadian spring bear hunt. He took this pumpkin head with his grandfather's ol' .30-30. I'll get more details when he's back home.

What a cool pic and with G-Pa's 30-30 how cool is that. I hope to heck that after I'm long gone one of my G-kids will carry on like this!
