A lil eye candy
Dude, I'm no tree hugging PETA idiot, but that guy is cool! Let him wander around out there a few more years!
There is a bigger one at that bait also. But I would not pass either up.
ctious, do you eat bear meat? When I was in PA on a hunting trip, I tasted some picked Bear meat. Me being a Cajun, we eat anything and I found it quite good!
I'm sure there could be some good uses for the meat!
Yes I eat it. It's good stuff.
Bear also makes really good hot sticks.
10mm for black bear? Do you have health insurance?
Have a lil faith. A black bear is no problem for a hot loaded 10 mm.
357 mags have killed thousands of bears. And my 10 does way better than a 357 mag.
I am also videoing the whole thing with my hero cam. So everyone can see how well the 10 works.
10mm will take care of East Coast bears, no problem. Quite a few hunters use .357 Mag, and the 10 is at least comparable to .357 in performance.
I would just make sure to use hard cast bullets, because I wouldn't trust SD ammo to perform sufficiently on a bear.
I killed one with a longbow and a wooden arrow. If I had my G29 I would have felt like I had a bazooka!
I would have loved to have had my 10mm with me walking out in the pitch dark on a trail covered in bear poop.
The round is a bit heavier, I guess, but both have equal ballistics. A hard cast 357mag round should penetrate better than a hardcast 10mm.
I never tried it, but now I'm curious.
200 gr at a little more than 1300 fps in my 10
357 mag 200 gr will hit 1300. But only in a longer barrel. All things equal looks like the 10 holds a good 100 fps over it.
Either one will work. Personally I like the slightly larger bullet on the 10 mm.
Not to add semi auto. Can keep pumping them out if need be
I just figured the 357 mag has a bit better sectional density.
I have recently purchased a 29 and it will probably accompany me this October in Colorado. Small bears and big cats and I'll be carrying my 30/06.
However when I carry my bow and sharp sticks in Montana it's the 4" .44 Smith.
Also, I've gotta try some properly prepared bear sometime. The only bear I've ever tried was cut off a hanging bear and thrown on a grate till done, no prep, no flavoring. Wasn't good.
Our neighbor in far northern WI shot a very large male black bear. I was told that the meet was delicious by everyone who tried it (nobody saved any for me).
From what I understand, the key to making sure the meat doesn't pick up some of the nasty flavors and aromas is to dress and butcher the bear as quickly as possible.
My sentiment, exactly. I don't personally have much use for a dead bear unless someone I care about or I am in danger from one. I like to see them in the wild -- not too close of course. They are pretty cool critters.
Also while dressing out any animal, the glands need to be removed and care taken not to cut a gland and continue using the knife without cleaning it regularly!
The cooling is key. Blocks of ice and get it into a walk in cooler or freezer asap.
I'm not much for bear hunting either, but to each his own! Have fun, make your shot count (for YOUR safety and HIS dignity) and eat that meat!! I'd love a report when / if you succeed!
