    MT DIY Spring Bear '12

    Well, I just got back from a successful spring bear hunt. We hunted 8 days, saw 16 bears (5 grizzlies) and ended up taking the biggest bear we saw.

    My dad spotted this bear at the mouth of a canyon where I had went after a big black one two days prior. He watched him until dark and the next morning I found him within 200 yards of where he had last seen him. I was able to put a stalk on him and got within 240 yds. One shot from my Sako .270 Win., he ran about 15 yds. and piled up. Pack out was all downhill!

    He's a beautiful light reddish brown colored bear with awesome hair. We roughly squared him at 6ft. He might stretch a little though.

    I know it's not a very good picture, but here is one of the grizzlies we saw. This is a BIG bear.

    I love spring bear hunting!

    I recognized long ago that if I have a warehouse full of guns, but no public land or public wildlife, I have nothing!
