Thread: Our grizzly maze

  1. #1

    Default Our grizzly maze

    My wife and i just got back from a moose/bear hunt. No moose but plenty of bear. Got charged by a sow with cub 20' she stopped and turned. Had a sow and 2 large cubs walk 30' from us and not reaized that we were there until 100' away. Had a 100yrd shot at a big bear but did not take due to getting too dark. All in all 8 bears. The adrenaline rush was quite rewarding. We had a .270 and a 12ga. I think it might be time to re barrel the 300mag to come with next time. My wife was a real trooper and a good hunting partner.

    Default good deal

    Too bad it got dark on that one bear, but I am always glad to read about people who won't shoot at dark-thirty; too many wounded beasts. Best of all, you Main Squeeze is a good hunting partner. That makes life sooo simple. Good luck to you two.

    10 Mallards and went for bear tonight. Sow with 3 cubs. In the morning going to the honey hole. She made some agressive noises so we think there is another bear nearby.

    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.
