Didn't read the thread, but I've killed a dozen bears, I aim the same place on all my animals with my 300 win.  They all died within yards of being shot, except one, hit back and livered it, found it barley alive the next day and killed it.  Behind the shoulder, aim and shoot.

Now you knock that nonsense off!!!!    :chuckle: :chuckle:

What we need is a pic like Dilleytech's pic but with the bear sawn in half down the back bone.  Then we could see the "skin" side and the inside with them aligned.  That will prove where the lungs are and how far back.

The lungs go to the diaphragm. Which is at the last rib. The shot in my picture is 3 ribs from the back rib. If you cut it open you would see the lungs shriveled up in a ball around the heart.
