Where'd you retrieve the bullet from?  You thumped it's skull head on?

Great write up high country, its amazing how fast your fight or flight instinct kicks in as I have killed one that close as well.  :brew:

Awesome bear.  :llam:

I just checked and you won the internet today! What a great animal, cool shot with a handgun, and all with your family there. You have much reason to be a proud papa!  :tup:
