Great bear and great story to

Great bear and great story to go along with it.  i don't blame you for backing out and coming back the next day. A wounded bear can be deadly.

Is that a pre-64 Winchester that you used?  I have one that my dad gave me.  I haven't used it in decades, but it is a cool gun.  As thick as it looks from the pic, the open sight 30 30 seems like a good rifle choice.

Win 94, anniversary edition

Win 94, anniversary edition 1994. Newer, but older style I guess. Got it second hand but had never been shot. It is a blast!

Looks like a great gun and it got the job done.  I love those lever action style guns.

Very cool story!

Very cool story and a great display of hunting ethics by your buddy!  There are a lot of guys that would have handled that situation much differently that he did!  I bet he'll have a bear tag in his pocket in that area for future hunts. Yes

Although I have never hunted bear, and don't see myself doing it, I always enjoy hearing stories from those of you that do. 

Congrats on a beautiful bear!  I like the way you posed it for the picture.  It kind of looks like he was saying his last prayer! lol

Lol, it does look like it is praying and you're right, kudos to the buddy for his ethics and adherence to the law.
