I know how that goes with bears... my first one was all of 15 yards and next was 70.
How many rounds do you have down the barrel now?

Been practicing and preparing my long range game and wouldn’t you know it, I shot this bear at 125 yards! Happy to fill the tag obviously, just a little funny/ironic.
Haha! Ive done that with elk. Practiced over 1000 yards and shot him at 90:D
But you have a nice bear. Congrats!

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
