Your Bear rifle, bow or ML for 2017
« on: August 25, 2017, 05:07:47 PM »
So what's everyone rifle choice for the 2017 season? I will be using this Smith Corona 1903a3 30-06 sporter with a Nikon Pro-Staff 4-12×40mm scope and 4" sun shade. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

6.5 Grendel  :tup:  IT was never my first choice, and still might not be for every hunt, but after dropping a big boar with it it a last week, I like it.

CZ-550 American 6.5x55mm with 120gr Barnes TTSX bullets.  Scope is a Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40.  Pretty basic, not super light weight, but should do the job.

Just realized this is a thread about what your using for bear..

I will be using mine for deer, oh well  ;)

I'll have a bear tag, just in case so you knows, maybe when it's said and done it'll be used for bear anyways  :P
