Big Bear shot Saddle Hills Alberta, Sept 20/2010
These two gents were calling elk in the Saddle Hills south of Woking when this big guy slipped in on the caller, the
shooter spotted the bear 8 yards from the caller and dropped him with 5 shots out of his 338 Rem Mag.. Farmers in
the area new about the bear but weren’t able to track after it had killed 3 horses, 5 cows, 13 sheep and a pen full of chickens on several
different homesteads in the area.
Fish and wildlife had bear traps set up in the area but noticed on surveillance video that when ever he would enter his hump would hit
the top of the culvert trap slowing him enough that the trap door would wack him on the head before he was all the way in. Check out the
scar tissue on his face……
Bear weighed in just under 1300 pounds and would have stood 11 ¾ feet tall on its hind legs…..
