Me, Cottonstalk, and My Bear

Description: This is a picture of Cottonstalk, Me, and the unfortunate bear who made the acquaintance of my .500 Linebaugh SRH on Monday. We hunted with a pack of plott hounds and I can think of no more fun or challenging way to hunt than with hounds. I feel very fortunate to be able to hunt with these guys.

Thanks, Jeff and Mike!


20 yards, up a tree, .500 Linebaugh, 500 grain LFN at 1,100 fps. I shot him in the backside (over the left ham) and it exited under his offside shoulder. Lots of internal damage. He shuddered at the impact.

Sweet!
It's a dream of mine to go after a bear one of these years...
He looks like a good one.


And what a round! 500grns at 1100fps......unreal. I bet you notice when you pull the trigger on that cannon.


Good job.

Good stuff mate! I just love hunting pigs with my dogs. I bet its just as much fun hunting bear with dogs! I'm real envious that you guys get to hunt with them with handguns as well!

Thanks, guys! minnesotahunter, it kicks pretty significantly considering it weighs less than 3-lbs (by a couple ounces).


B-dog, it's the most fun you can have hunting as far as I am concerned!

250 pounds is a solid bear anywhere. that's great. Have you measured its skull yet?

Hey Whit, After looking at your beautiful black bear I noticed the barrel of a 30-30 leaning against the tree. Any comments??
