Haven't had the opportunity to hunt browns or grizzlies yet, but this Gila Wilderness black bear made B&C book (taken with an original Winchester 1895 in .35 WCF):

These were taken from the low bridge over the Babine River, while on a fishing trip - same trip as the previous pictures, John posted.

Two black bears I killed in Northern British Colombia in May, 2005.

The first is jet black:




The second is a cinnamon phase black bear:




Both were taken with my J. Winkler double rifle, one shot kills. The taxidermist at Smithers said both bears were 18 to 21 years old, judging from their worn and broken teeth.

Not a big bear, by any means, but taken on the lat day of a 5 day hunt in Idaho, in very hot, dry conditions, spot and stalk.

Good rifle for that job, Maddog. I like that 22" bl.'d 95.Hard to tell with the angle - maybe it's a ported 18 1/2"? (but I'd rather have Curl's rifle in either case) .

Daryl S, yes it's a .45-70 Guide Gun. L was using the then new 325 gr. hornady leverevolution bullets. Rounded a bend on a creek at the bottom of a canyon, and found her eating berries. Shot her at a whopping 45 ft.!

POWELL, Wyo. (AP) -- A Wyoming wildlife manager says he supports hunting grizzly bears now that the population in the Yellowstone National Park area has reached the highest level in decades.

Mike, Non-residents and aliens are certainly allowed to hunt bears here in Alaska. In fact over the past four or five years probably 30% of our clients have come from outside the USA.
Like African elephants, our great bears are one of the world's greatest trophies.

No doubt the grandeur of Grizzly no way less than Siberian Tigers, Bengal Tigers and African Lions but in some respect it is marking its acme. Certain attributes turns the beast into an element of mass destruction:

1. Least choosiness about the prey.

2. Great smelling power and good eyesight (Least found both in most of the prior mentioned beasts).

3. Hefty built up.

4. Great knack of chasing the prey till the last edge.

5. Ferocious killer. (Sometimes starts eating prey alive)

Hi MOG

All is well, and I did get another Stone sheep about 4 years ago. I hope all is well with you.
