    Talking First Grizz for a first time hunter

    Here is my 12 year old daughter with her first Grizz taken with a savage .243. She patiently waited for what seemed like forever for the broadside shot and center punched this girl and ended her browse through the blueberries. Mom was there as nervous as she could be but the daughter kept her in line and we had a good time. Lots of memories and a nice start to a young hunting career.

    No no your wrong....243 can't kill a bear, you have to use a .338SuperDuperUltraMegaMag!!! LOL

    Great looking bear! Looking forward to taking my son hunting. How old do kids have to be to hunt in Alaska. (We just moved here in February)

    Now that is one strong-willed girl! The first time I saw a bear I panicked, squealed and "ran like a little girl." HA!!!

    Congrats....I just wish I was as brave as her!

    They have to be 10 years old to hunt under their own bag limit. Hunters younger than 10 can hunt under the direct supervision of older hunters, but the animals they kill count against the bag limit of the adult.

    That's awesome! Congrats to your daughter and my hats off to her patience and markswomanship! Beautiful looking bear.

    I'm about to get my 8 year old started on a bigger gun and was considering having her take over my .243. How long has your daughter been shooting hers?

    Terrific experience I'm sure! Great to see such patience and marksmanship and a fine example of the effectiveness of shot placement .
