Mich.girl kills 448-pound black bear with arrow

She also fishes!

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - A 17-year-old Michigan girl began her big game hunting career with a bang - or rather a whoosh - by killing a 448-pound black bear with a bow and arrow from 16 yards away.

Good grief that pisses me off seeing *censored*s knock her, most grown men probably wouldn't have had the balls to stay on target and release the arrow from such close range to a big bear. The smile on her face really says it though!
The reason there are so many Ruger upgrades is because they're necessary.

That's a big ass bear. I bet her daddy's proud. Sounds like it anyway.

Great bear, congrats to the young gal. Some of those anti hunting idiots that are being rude need an a@% kicking.

I read some of those comments and it just makes me wonder what people are thinking. Do they really believe their ancestors gathered all there food and didn't kill anything.

What a lot of these a$$hat morons don't realize is if you take a large boar out of the food chain, it actually helps the bear population.  Those bigger boars kill and eat cubs and smaller bears, and often. 
Nothing witty here.... move along.
