    This one was close... about 40ft. Was just getting out of the truck when this prime candidate for burger walked over like it was his truck. My son Matthew (pictured) dashed for the open door, and I plowed him with a spine shot to the neck from my Remington 788 in 308 with the a custom NOE 311299 hollow point over 31g of Varget.. backed the truck up and loaded him.. not much of a hunt to be honest... didn’t even get my hip boots on when he walked over to see what was in our picnick basket. These are the kind of young bears I love to take out of the local population. Curious close to town brave young bears turn into aggressive habituated bears if not dealt with.

    This is one of my favorite boolits around here. Great from my 308’s, and my son Matthews 30-06. It is a hunt/show stopper..



    Freezer is filling fast.. one or 2 to go.

    I think I mentioned that Fast food around here is a Blacktail disappearing into the brush....

    Heading into town on the 3rd.. better pickup some more bacon pieces.. my 90 year old neighbor dropped off some goodies to go with it...

    1 year shy of 90, only one eye works, and can’t hear a dang thing, but still raking in the shrimp.. his name is Dave, and is very dear to me.

    Another day of Redneck surf and turf...

    Sounds like a great neighbor. He supplies you with the shrimp and you supply him with bear burger meat. Everybody is happy and eating good.

    Good job on it all. It is nice you did not had to go far to get the bear. He volunteer to be on your table. Not the way he plan. I had one time happened when I went out deer hunting and where I pull in to park my truck. There was 2 does about 20yards from where I pull to park and drop one in its track with a muzzle loader. It was less then 30 mins to shoot and field dress and put in the back of the pick up. The one I live near seen me drive by at first and then later see me stop by to talk with my brother that was there and the guy ask was it me you shot I said yes I got the deer here in the back. He was scratch his head and his wife too. Nice for your friend to do what he did for what he gave you. Nice meal to both .

    Nice job on the bear- young ones with no fear do become a big problem. Also great story about your dear neighbor- sounds like a tough old guy and I’m sure has great stories and experience!

    Nice Job, Marco ! I think it's only right that sometimes the game comes easy. Some years for deer I spend hundreds on gas, motels, sit out in rain and snow freezing and come home with nothing.
    Once in a while you walk out and kill one 5 minutes from the start and give thanks for your luck.
