Took the family out for a day on the side by side and caught this bear upwind and oblivious to our presence walking right at us. I closed the distance and got about 25 yds away from the family and let him keep walking hoping he wouldn't notice two dogs my daughter and wife in the open and bolt. I let him keep coming and he closed to about 25yds from me still unaware. He then herd either my wife trying to keep everyone quiet or the dogs whimpering or my 18 month old saying bear, bear. Thats when he stopped and looked and I pulled the trigger. The bear spun and I fired another shot dropping his back end and one more quick shot in the base of the skull anchored him. 6'2" and 18 1/16 not bad for my first pistol kill. The hide surprisingly is flawless and looks like a fall bear the meat is now at the processor to resupply my breakfast sausage and teriyaki sticks. The best part was having my daughter and wife get to see the whole thing. Last day of the season so I get three more tags to start again today.
