Went up to no-name creek and spotted a blackie about 400 yards uphill; wasn't confident enough to take a shot but was really tempted (as we all are with testing our fences). Saw another on a seperate butte and was completely in awe of our great state and creation in general. Anyone have any tips for practice for such a shot? The bear was guessed at about 5.5', not a triangle anymore but not much past it. The other was definately a shooter with a broad spread on the ears.
By the way, both were excellent coats with no visable rubs!
