    Default Muzzleloader Bear

    My First (and after this maybe only..) bear.
    Saturday night 6:15 pm in Clinton county
    Muzzleloader, 50 cal Hornady I forgot which bullets

    Came out about 45 yards away, perfect broadside, went about 2 stumbling strides and dropped
    Sow
    230lbs
    5 ft nose to tail
    The suckling teeth the game commission like to pull was already gone so thinking she was getting up there in age

    Getting her done into a rug mount with the skull bleached for a mount.

    I had someone hunt my property for bear last week and the funny thing was I captured this huge bear on the trail cam standing exactly where he was but the twain shall never meet. Had a bunch of other bears running all the over the damn place near where he sat but only when he wasn't there.

    Sticks and stones will break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

    Your face mask isn't blaze orange and it doesn't have the PAGC logo!
    And you're wearing it too high. How did you aim???

    Congrats
    lol can tell you haven't hunted since the 80's?
    Don't think the PGC has referred to hunter orange as blaze orange for 30 years.
    Just fluorescent orange now.


    Awesome harvest BTW......congrats.
