Spring bear hunt related by co-worker
Spring bear hunt 1992 North West Alaska, male brown bear out north of town on a opposing slope of a snow field (thigh deep average) My co-worker was useing a Remington 700 in 300 winchester mag 200 grain softpoints, first shot was ranged at 328yards, first round was taken 1/4ing side shot to vitals but he screwd up the down slope holdover and the shot was high and he hit the Lt Shoulder, the bear circled 2-3 times and zero'd in on my co-worker and came on the run, my co-worker shot two more times before dropping the bear within 40 yards of where he was standing, the bear ran through some drifts up to waste deep in the ravine bottom and average knee deep on his side the ravine, his ground speed with busted shoulder was still as fast as you could run the 50yard dash on pavement through snow, up hill wounded he was later measured at 7'10".
people will do as they like reguardless of what we tell them.
In the words of the old sage Alaskan 'Let Em' they want to piss off bears with a little gun its not like they hadnt been warn'd
