Small Sow

Description: Took this 150-lb dry sow on opening day in NC. It was my turn on the trigger and this is what we turned up. Would have given her a pass, but one of her front legs was injured so she wouldn't climb. Had we gotten her up a tree we could have broken off the hunt. If any of you have hunted black bears with dogs, you will know that if they stay on the ground and make a stand, things can get ugly in a hurry. She didn't disappoint and let's just say that we had to do some tailgate stitching when the smoke cleared. I used my .480 Ruger SRH with 280 grain CEB Raptors. Shot was very close, personal, and offhand.

Looks like you put the hammer down on her. How did you like the CEB's?

I like 'em a lot, David. I've used them on a number of animals this year and they work well. Terminally effective and really accurate.
