Default Bear Down

I shot this Yogi sunday with a 375 Ruger. He is a nice bear for an Oregon bear. Just shy of six feet. The 260 grain Partition just hammered him.

Awesome! Thanks for the picture.

He looks like a really good bear, a good and dead bear.

This monitor is not great; where on his body did you get him?

I shot him through the shoulders. All I had was my cell phone so no trophy pics. I couldn't roll him over for a better picture. My hunting partners were 15 miles away drinking beer in the shade so I couldn't borrow a camera(or a damn bone saw).

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I've killed several and love the meat of BLACK bear. Congrats. You do know that the hams can be cured just like a hog and tastes wonderful that way.

The only kind of bear ive had is jerkey, what does a bear steak taste like? My oldladys uncle got a bear about a month ago and he said when it was processed and he got it home it tasted like it had spoiled. So i never got a chance to try it.
