Excellent read and a great bear for the hunter. Art, what was the cartridge and bullets used?
Don't be bashful - send us a few more photos.

Jeff was shooting a Kimber 8400 in 338WM with a Conquest and I was shooting a 700 in 375AI with a Vortex 1-4 scope. Jeff was not shooting a 375 A-Bort because it failed him...

We were both shooting my reloads. Jeff was using 225gr TSX and I was using 270gr XFBs.

The bear was about as far away from Port O'Brien as yours, just on the opposite side... And there was about as much shooting! wink

Nope. It's only illegal to bait brown bears, not brown bear hunters. grin

Yeah, I have a few years to save up my pennies.. unless a pard draws and I get the nod.

Good luck to Riley. Man I can't wait to get back.
