    Rethinking my loads/calibers for deer.

    I like a heavier bullet in the .300 Magnums. In my .300 Weatherby, I use either the Barnes 165 gr. TTSX over 83.0 RL22, or the Nosler 180 gr. Partition over 81.0 AA-3100. Both loads clock a shade over 3,000 fps.

    bear spray

    Bear spray does expire. Some cans of more recent manufacture have an expiration date on the can. Pressing the button on your can of bear spray and getting only a fizzing sound or nothing, has to be maximum pucker factor!

    Your Best Clour Phase Black Bear - Post 'em Up!

    Pretty much all black in the area that I hunt. Out of thirteen bears, I only shot one color phase bear, a medium size blonde. I shot this bear in the Trinity Mountains in Northern California. At that time it was the #11 Inland Black Bear taken with a handgun.

    I normally hunt Blacktails the last week of the California Zone B-2 season. That is always a waiting game hoping a late season storm will drive some of the of the larger mountain dwelling Blacktails down into the foothills. By comparison, the early season offers a chance at resident deer in...
