Some of you may be able to put my mind at ease. Tonight I was driving down past Girdwood when I saw a black bear on the other side of the road, railroad tracks, and a pond. I was contemplating on taking the shot and then working my way around the pond to the animal. The shot would have only been about 150 yds with a 35 Whelen, definitely in my range. It was very good looking bear maybe a little over 6' with a great coat.
I am just wondering what some of you would have done in this situation, being just of the highway
