Title: Going to do the bear thing soon!!
Post by: D45/70 on March 30, 2012, 04:47:49 PM
17 days to go. I'm pumped. I took the MOAG ( mother of all guns ) and shot 20 rounds through her. I've neglected  :'( her as of late with all the coyote, prairie dog, goose ,and duck hunting we did. But I'll make it up to here shortly. I hope this year the snow will let us in to some bear country this year .Last year the snow didn't abate till well after the spring season,and a lot of the bears just staid in bead till then too. But this year they Denned up way late and put lots of FAT on. I have seen reports of Grizzly running around and the blackies should be getting up too. If a LATE snow storm doesn't block us off I have a good feeling about this year.When I put the 45/70 on paper she shot like we where old friends. I did my part she did hers. MAN that old gal sure knows how to make this old guy feel good.

 A buddy and I may get out next Monday and do a "Coyote" trip up to the snow edges and look for bear sign. :twisted:

 Well here we go man I love it!@!! O0

Good luck with the bear hunting and old gal, D!  O0 O0

I remember the lousy weather y'all had last year, was a bummer.   :'(

I have read articles of folks hunting in Africa with the good old .45/70, as well as a lot of other places. They like the .45/70 in Texas for hogs, too.  O0

I don't blame ya for that, D! It would be a long drive for you to go hog hunting, but it would be a blast.

I reckon that big rifle you have pretty well turns coyotes wrong side out! It should really put the hammer on hogs.  :twisted: O0
