Black bear taken with Air Rifle
« on: June 15, 2009, 01:38:15 PM »
Here you go Mosparky......... :roll:

I found this on another site.

Friend of mine who buys bigbore slugs from me for his .457 Quackenbush airgun recently finished a hunt in Canada....don't know what province.

He took this small bear with a .457 caliber airgun, one shot, using a 422 gr Hollow Point dead-soft lead slug. Shot went through both shoulders, and within 50 yards the bear was down.

Here's a pic:



As far as I know, this is the first black bear killed with a modern airgun.

Bigbore airguns are gaining popularity, and the small bore airguns are great for small game hunting. For the story of this hunt, brief as it is, you can email me and I'll send you the link to the forum it is posted on.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

As I said before, Todays modern air rifles are a far cry from the red ryders we grew up with.
