There I was..... Standing on the Hill-side...
Looking at a rock that I had never noticed befor???...The rock started walking-HEY! Rocks dont move-Looked through the Bino's and noticed it was a Bear-watched him for about 10 min. Realized it was a Boar-Due to the Potty action- Leveled on the chest -about 200 yards-touched off the round-he leaped forward-dashed about 50 yards swatted a poor inocent little oak tree-brakeing it into two pieces, My knees clanged together, (rapidly)-My first thought was-You Dumby, why did you do that. Then at about 75 yards I could see him laying there looking back towards me-I waited about 15 min. he didnt move-so I moved down the hill-circled around behind him-snuck up tossed a BIG! rock at him and hit him in the butt with it-he didnt move so I got real bold-snuck up and poked him in the butt with the barrel of my rifle-then I got realy realy bold and kicked him real hard in the Butt-he didnt move on that -so I knew he was Mine-then I got excited-he was around 450 lbs-Thats what I was told-the carcass with out the hide, head ,and gut's weighed 211 lbs in the freezer, I know I could hardly move him by myself. Is what made this hunt so special was I built the rifle I was useing and it was my first year reloading my own ammo.He nows stands proudly on the display in my loading/Fly tieing-fishing/Hideing room.

Nice bear!!! I can't wait until May!!! This'll be my first year chasing them. Just hope to get one that weighs as much as me!!! :D That might be pretty hard, I'm kinda fat :eek: but I'm gonna try!!! Again congrats! I'd like to hear about the rifle you built. That's on my list of things to try.
