I was out rabbit and predator hunting today. Me and a buddy rode our 4 wheelers back about 15 miles on a popular Matsu valley trail. One the way riding out I ran across a pretty fair sized grizz. It was standing on a small bluff about 120 yards away when I pulled up.
The only problem was that the only rifles I had with me where my 10/22 and T/C encore 22-250. I didn't even have my 10mm on me that I normally carry everywehre I go. Of all the days to forget it. I shortly debated trying to put a 50gr JSP behind the shoulder in the ribs, maybe it woudl take out the lungs, but decided against it.
I guess I better start throwing my 06 barrel in my pack from now on.
I really didn't expect any bears would be out right now, It was in the low 20s today and has been cold for the last few weeks. I guess it just goes to show that you just never know when a bear might turn up.
I'm kind of bummed because he would hav emake a really nice rug, his hide was perfect, but either way was still cool to see.
