Arizona Black Bear

I called this bear in last weekend with a hand call and harvested him with a single 70 yard shot from my Browning .300 Winchester Magnum rifle. I about died packing him out of the canyon, but it was well worth it. Enjoy! Keith

Nice Bear Keith, how far did you have to pack him out?

It was about a mile, but it was all climbing up and out of a canyon. Based on elk, deer, and lion that I have shot, I estimated the live weight around 250 or so pounds. Also I processed the bear at home and froze up 140 pounds of de-boned meat, if that figure means anything to anybody.
