Re: Black Bear Hunting
Highboy, we've shot several bear over 300 lbs with 6.8; 110 vmax. Mine were going 2700 on the chrono. All shots were well placed shooting from stand over barrel. Only one grizz was shot around our house this fall, with a 30-30 to boot. One local girl that uses my stand from time to time has shot a bunch of bear with her 270; they drop on the spot. Indians down Ft Yukon got a sow polar bear with 223 fmjs a couple years back; but it was only 400 lber.
All the moose, caribou, bear and wolves we've shot; only the wolves got away from time to time, in fact; deer back east seemed tougher than just about anything; had a few get away over the years.
