    Don't think the PGC has referred to hunter orange as blaze orange for 30 years.

    Thanks all!

    I used 2 of the IMR White Hot Pellets for a total of 100 grains. Checked and I used the Hornady Monoflex sabots, red tip, 250 grains. Plenty lethal combo at that range. Had a good size exit round on other side and found part of jacket inside when gutting.

    Amen to cleaning deer size animals. I couldn*t get the damn poop tube out so I split the pelvis to be able to get the bottom half all cleaned out. Taxidermist said shit, made my job a lot harder to skin as he likes to hang the bear on his hoist using a hook on the pelvis bone. He said next time leave it in there if you can*t get it out we*ll take care of it here.

    Thanks, she really is. I*m in my mid 50*s and every time I kill/harvest an animal I still have a moment or two of sadness. This may be my last bear even if I get another chance. I*ll get the annual license to help fund PAGC but unless it is a monster, I*m thinking I*ll pass.
