Lets go for a walk



These two gents were calling elk in the Saddle Hills south of Woking, Alberta when this big guy slipped in on the caller. The Shooter spotted the bear about 8 yards from the caller and dropped him with 5 shots out of his 338 Rem Mag.. Farmers in the area new about the bear but weren’t able to track after it had killed 3 horses, 5 cows, 13 sheep and a pen full of chickens on several different homesteads in the area. Fish and wildlife had bear traps set up in the area but notice on surveillance video that when ever a he would enter his hump would hit the top of the culvert trap slowing him enough that the trap door would wack him on the head before he was all the way in the reap. Check out the scar tissue on his face….. Bear weighed in just under 1300 pounds and would have stood 11 ¾ feet tall on its hind legs…..

Nice way to avoid becoming bear poop.

I bet the elk caller felt a bit of poop too?

It does suck to see such a rad animal killed...But if that big fucker crossed my path, you would have to put him down. He's not gonna just walk away.Everyone that hunts deer and elk and shit like that can all lick my nuts.It fuckin lame.

Id love to think this isnt a photshop job, but Im callin bullshit..No way a guy is rollin a 1300lbs bear around to take pictures. its hard enough to roll a 300lb motorcycle into the back of a truck....Oh and the 338 Rem Mag only holds 4 shells, one in the chamber and 3 in the clip...howd this guy manage to get 5 off?

FAKE.

My uncle shot and killed a 6oo lbs. bear 20 years ago in Northern Minnesota. I thought that bear was big! This sombitch is twice as big easily. One Big Mother Fucker!

I hope it is a fake. If its not yet another magnificent wild animal killed by numb nuts with a gun. If they want a challenge that is worthy then hunt the creatures caveman style with a flint topped spear. Then I might be impressed. But I doubt it.

Not a photoshop job. Could have been from a 338 Mag Rem Ultra.

Cry me a fucking river. Bear meat is tasty. Hippies suck.

That bear was actually hunted for sport, some lame guided hunting lodge thing in Alaska in 2009. The "hunters" get to stay in a cozy cabin until their guide takes them down a trail and says "there, shoot that one". Impressive bear for sure but not uncommon at all in that area. 9'9" was it's real size. You can see it here: http://www.huntafognak.com/bearhunt.htm *sorry to be a buzzkill, love the story somebody made up for it though! Had me going for a minute.*

Hey man, that's really close to where I live, I was just there recently. I never heard about this though. I don't care if it's fake, I am impressed
