    Want to go bear hunting in Alberta?


    These two gents were calling elk in the Saddle Hills south of Woking, Alberta when this big guy slipped in on the caller. The Shooter spotted the bear about 8 yards from the caller and dropped him with 5 shots out of his 338 Win Mag.. Farmers in the area knew about the bear but weren’t able to track after it had killed 3 horses, 5 cows, 13 sheep and a pen full of chickens on several different homesteads in the area.


    Fish and wildlife had bear traps set up in the area but noticed on surveillance video that whenever he would enter a trap, his hump would hit the top of the culvert trap slowing him enough that the trap door would whack him on the head before he was all the way in the rear.
    Check out the scar tissue on his face ... Bear weighed in just under 1300 pounds and would have stood 11¾ feet tall on its hind legs!

    What a monster, look at them claws!


    Wonder how long it'll be before we get the "Oh, that's photoshopped" and "Saw it on another website, it's a fake.", blah, blah, blah..... ;-)

    5 shots from a .338, at 8 yards. That has BAR written all over it.


    Note to self: I'm never bow-hunting for Elk again.


    (Bet somebody had to change pants).
