We killed four bear this past season on the DC Permits .
I got a smallish boar of about 75 pounds with my Retro 444P shooting the LBT 433-340GC bullet .
My hunting partner got a pair of a sow and a boar one day I didn't go . The sow was maybe 65 and the loar was a hair bigger then mine at about 85 . He shot both of these with jacketed bullets in a 300 SAUM .
My partner got another and the last bear we got in 2011 with his Springfield M1A shooting factory Hornady loads with the 165 SST . This one was a weighed 185 pounds on our scale !
That makes 7 bear in 3 years of doing this !
My friends longest shot of the 5 he's taken so far has been maybe 12 yards . My bear from 2010 was 9 1/2 yards and the one from 2011 was a lasered 72 yards .
