Dinny sent me some pics & asked me to post for him. He has poor cell reception. But wanted everyone to know. He is havin fun!

He said it was a long miserable drag!! His legs are rubber!

Dropped him outta the tree but needed a second shot. Thinks both good & solid. Bears treed by dogs have adrenalin up. Can be tough to anchor!!

He used his 357 Maxi and my cast 270g (Accurate 36-270c )bullets.

Very cool ! I thought he was going to use his 348 Win. handi for bear hunting but sometimes your mind tells you to grab something different.
Congrats Dinny !

Congratulations Dinny.

Beautiful creatures they are. Hunting with dogs is the best. Are you hooked now?

All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.

Way to go , Dinny, congrats! I sure hope it's better eatin than the last fall bear I ate, even the sausage was bad, bear roasts weren't fit for a dog. I suspect it had been eating gut piles since it was near the of deer season which prolly didn't help, they are what they eat, after all. If it had been a spring bear, maybe it would have been better, but I don't look forward to shooting another.
