first bear

This is my first year ever bear hunting. I have to admit I am definitely hooked.
I thought shooting a 10pt buck was exciting but does not compare to the excitement of bear hunting. I've read a lot of controversy of rifle selection, I used my 6.5x55swede made good heart shot bear went 50ft.
I think as long as you have patience a make a good shot any big game caliber is good. remember 95% is the shooter 5% is the gun...
Here is a pic of my first bear dressed out at 161lbs...[/b]

great shooting man nice bear and yea bear hunting is pretty awesome i think also but i find all big game hunting is great they all give me the rush i think its just the thought of that big of an animal going down from one of my shots and how close i can get to it without it knowing im there just all those things about hunting and more that make the sport and the thrill of the kill and the other things we do with every other possible part we can use of the animal me myself i try to keep every thing skulls teeth claws every bit of meat and the hide of course but thats me anyhow great shooting bro
