Default My 2017 New Jersey Muzzleloader Bear Is Home
Finally got him back !!! I'm happy with the outcome!!
My good friend Frank does taxidermist work on the side, I wasn't in any rush and told him to take care of other customers.
I shot this bear on the last day of segment A with my T/C TRIUMPH, using two pellets of Triple 7 Magnum, and a 250 grain Barens T-EZ, the shot was only 40 yards, the bear came in at first light from the direction I thought they wouldn't come from, he ran maybe 10 yards and was down for a nap!!!
The week of Segment A was warm and humid, I only saw one bear on the 2nd day, it was about 250 lbs. but of course it winded me. Then Friday evening I was so ---- frustrated I wasn't going, but my wife convinced me to go and I decided last minute to take the smokepole
He sure wasn't a big bear, it seems any good size bears or very big bears disappear within days of the hunt
