I have read that some bears hear a shot and it is like a dinner bell to them, but that is with grizzlies. I would make shure that your ML is loaded right away.

Talk with a guy yesterday who had a black bear come running right after he put an elk down with his bow! Bear got there right after they gutted it.

Yes, last year going back to my elk kill the next morning there was a bear feeding on the carcass as we had boned the elk out. When we got to the meat hanging in the trees the bear was feeding broadside at sixty yards. I could have easily put a Powerbelt from my ML into his lungs.
