My son and I returned back from our black bear hunt .
We hiked in about 5 miles in the Kachemak bay area across from Homer .
It was a spot and stock hunt .
I took this 6 1/2 blackie at 77 yards with one of my hard cast 700 GrainWFNGC Thumpers for my 500 Smith Revolver .
I was able to get the bear to stop and take a look at me.
When he stoped to take a look he sat down at an angle from me .One shot through the heart and out the back through a rib .He did a back flip when hit and that was it !!!
Half inch hole in and a smidgen bigger on the exit.
Got to love hard cast bullets .
The hide is perfect with no rubs at all.
The taxidermist has him now .
Overall we had a great time .
Sorry can't get the pictures to be accepted .
