To Hunt the Grizzled Bear (feature article)

July 2007 Feature Article:

To Hunt the Grizzled Bear

Working my way along a fast-flowing river, I glimpsed a patch of brown through the trees. Digging at something along the river's edge, there was my grizzly. As a resident hunter, I'd waited eight years before finally drawing a coveted tag in Alberta. It was early May and there were still patches of snow in low-lying shady areas. As quickly as possible I extended the legs on my bipod, lay out in a prone position and centered the crosshairs of my Leupold on his chest. At this time of year it's especially important to ensure that the bear is alone. Sows with cubs are off-limits. Everything looked good. A six-footer, he wasn't an old boar, but for a self-guided hunt and my first-ever grizzly I wasn't going to be too selective. Waiting just long enough to make sure everything was in order I gently squeezed the trigger on my 7 mm Remington Magnum. He collapsed on the spot! I'd like to say that was the end of the tale, but it just ain't so. Much to my surprise, he stood up. A second round was needed to put him down for the count! Read more...
