Great pics mossbuck35. I would have no problem shooting that bear. There are way to many bears out here in Colorado. They are a big problem when it comes to calf elk and fawn deer. They kill lots of them. So all you guys out there with Colorado bear tags good luck and I hope every one of you fill your tags.
It seems that a lot of hunters think of a bear hunt as an opportunity that they will only have once and want that perfect bear. If your comfortable taking this bear then make him yours, get another tag next year and wait for the big one. If your state is selling OTC bear tags then odds are you'll get another chance. I bought a bear tag 5 of 6 years that I hunted in Colorado. The one year I didn't have a tag on me is the year I could have had a really nice bear. I never went hunting without an OTC tag after that.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
