Thanks for the link. Everyone needs to see this. If I'm ever in big bear country I want a shot gun with the Dixie Dangerous Game Slugs. Wow.

I'm thinking it's a .338 winchester in a Remington rifle - 700? - not sure how he got off five rounds when the bear was 24 feet away when he started shooting.

5 rounds so fast and he didn't have CRF, how did that happen.

Duane: I agree! Wonder if he was using the BAR .338 Win Mag.

I would suspect it means a .338 RUM a cartridge nearly as powerful as the .340WBY and giving over 4500 FPE with a 250gr bullet.

Makes the most sense - still wonder about the five shots unless one or two were done after reload if using a bolt action.

Good resource of link. The shooter spotted the bear 8 yards from the caller and dropped him with 5 shots from his 338 Rem Mag..

1,300lbs and 11 feet tall! Holy schnikes. 24 feet from the caller and he never heard it? Wow, that is a massive animal. I'd imagine the caller about soiled himself when he started shooting!

I would assume after the first or second shot the bear was not moving much, looked like the shoulder was busted. The rest were likely finishing shots. I think it was most likely a .338 WM, just a misprint.

This bear was not taken in Alberta the above link will take you to the true story.
another Internet legend. The forest and vegetation is not Fall Alberta, but spring coastal Alaska. The following is the actual story.

"That is guide, Luke Randall of Afognak Wilderness Lodge, on the left in first photo but it is NOT in Saddle Hills, Alberta or any other dreamed-up location . . . their story is completely bogus. The truth is that this hunt took place on north Afognak Island within the Kodiak Islands, Alaska and the 9'9" bear (squared skin measurement) was taken May 5, 2007 by Jesse Wallace of California, who is a guide himself. The bear was preserved as a full mount and was in our SCI booth during January/'08. Luke was on Afognak during Sept 20/'10, as we still had fishermen & photographers.
So, please do your part in setting the record straight amongst your circle of friends. Good hunters are big on truth"

This statement from the outfitter.

Don't you love the way 'they' always take the picture with foreshortening set up to make the animal look twice as big as it actually is? It has gotten so that I do not believe any picture I see anymore. Totally a faked story, big bear, but not an 11 foot giant, and yet another internet and camera angle hocus pocus.

If the story is true adrenaline will explain it. A friend of mine shot a sow bear and dropped his 44 mag carbine to run up to it for inspection and tagging. He remembers her standing up when he was about 6' away, his next conscious memory was of his single six 44 mag revolver going click, click, click as he thumbed and shot. He had drawn and emptied a single shot revolver into that bear killing her without realizing he had even drawn the gun.

Yes he soiled himself. He left his pants in the woods and drove back to base with the bear in the back of his truck and his jacket wrapped around him..

I don't really know what rifle the man had but that is why I choose to use my .416-Rem. mag in a model 70 Winchester for several years. Stopping one of those big critters is not like Hollywood movies!

an old post. But any griz/brown kill is great. this one has been "fudged"...it is only a small to normal size bear.
My 416 seems to stop them with one shot!

Is allways thrilling to read here. I rarely make a comment though. Most of that is because I don't own a dg rifle and likely won't because I'm to old to take the risk of hunting a critter that big. Another reason is my freezer ain't big enough and I don't have enough friends to eat one.

Must be amazing to hunt and take one. Some envy for those of you that do. Would love to watch somehow?

Thought for a new thread. You find it.

I'll have to load my 700 and my 70 up. Memory is sometimes an issue for me. 5 rounds??
