I almost fell asleep reading your article. I kept stopping and dreaming of my past, wonderful hunts when I lived in Wyoming!!
love the story brother...
I greatly enjoyed reading your story.
If you could clarify a couple key points:
1) break the shoulder- are you referring to the point the shoulder The" humerous " where it connects in body the ball of the shoulder so to speak???? Not just the humerous but hit the ball so to speak????
2) are you referring to the shooting stance as pictured where the recoil is absorbed by the armpit???? do you any more pictures showing this shooting position.
3) Are those the stoney point shooting sticks seems very hard to find if you can share a source I would appreciate buying some.
God does work in funny unpredictable ways. Each step is a step of faith, then a walk of faith, then a journey of faith, then eternal memories of faith, all for his glory.
What kind of Ft lbs of energy should a hunter strive for at the given range to be effective in killing a huge bear like this???? Ex: is 800 ft lbs of energy a limiting factor in range limiting the distance between a killing shot and a wounding shot???
Thanks for sharing your expertise
ODAVID - I'm glad you enjoyed the article. Please find my responses to your questions below in blue font.
That's difficult to put a number on considering the many variables involved. I personally would consider 1,500 ft lbs a minimum. Could you kill cleanly with less? Sure. The bear in the article was taken with approximately 2350 ft lbs on target at 530 yards. Bullet velocity was approximately 2300 fps at that range.
Thank you sir
Thank you sir. Glad to know the article brought up some fond memories of Wyoming for you.
I'm originally from Washington State, Curlew to be exact. Where are you from ?
One heck of a bear Ron, congratulations! A beautifully colored bear like that, over 7' and with a 20" skull is quite a bear!
And after a difficult hunt too. Perfect!
Thanks for the article, I enjoyed it very much.
