Out deer Hunting and cut a big fresh track In the snow. Followed for 3 minutes to an alder patch. Walked 10 steps into the alder patch and all of a sudden, Alders started breaking and bear showed up huffing and looking at me though some weeds at 6 yards. Reaction took over and looked through scope and shot below head and hit him in the chest. He roared very loudly, shot him in the side as he turned to run away, and roared again. .Turned towards my brother in law and said" Did I just shoot a Brown Bear". His eyes were huge and then a big smile came over his face. He did not see the bear until after the second shot. He did not shoot because I was in front and slightly to the side of him. The Bear ran less than 20 yards and was dead. The first shot went through the left side of the chest into the heart and out the opposite side in the ribs and out.The second shot was in the lungs and in the hide on the other side. Shot him with a Weatherby re barreled in .338 Win Mag with 250 grain Nosler partitions topped with a 4X redfeild scope. Bear was laying on a deer kill(3X3). Wind was in our face, bear must of heard us in the snow and came to take a look. Took my brother in law and I everything we had move him for pictures and to turn over to skin. Had a 2+ mile pack out and pack weighed 136 pounds with just the hide. Boar was 9 feet 1 inch squared and a 26 13/16 inch skull. A few minutes before we found the track we were discussing people getting mauled, like the hunters on the west side! Crazy Good Time!! Thanks Dwight!!!!!!!!
