Alpine Beast
« on: September 13, 2020, 08:21:21 AM »
Was lucky to get this beast yesterday. Spotted him 1 1/2 miles out and knew he was good. 4 hours later I had him @ 90 yards.  About 350 lbs and squared out at 6’9 1/2”.  Thankful for good friends.  Took about 6 hours to get him back to the truck with 3 of us.  Would’ve been quicker if a couple of us weren’t 50!  😁

 Beast is right. If I was ever going to bear hunt again that one right there is one I would NOT shoot. Too much work.  :chuckle: Nice job.

I didn’t know someone here was named “Bear.” 

Based upon the hunt, the name fits!

Awesome bear way to get it done!

A strong body makes the mind strong.  As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

Wow! This bear looks fantastic. Walking in the mountains and forest, searching for animals makes you feel adventurous. It seems you were happily catching this beast in such an incredible landscape.

You might be surprised to know that in Texas. Non-Texans come here every year to experience deer hunting. From November to January, people came out from their houses for the deer hunting season. They travel to experience hunting for some of the best deer in the United States.

If you ever plan for a deer hunting in Texas, don't forget to get in touch with Migrate Outfitters.
