Matt man I'd have to say have a buddy with a rifle bear mace and ur will written lol... No have a hunting buddy know your area, do it from a stand and dont freakn miss. I know of a guy that wounded a grizz and it almost got the better of him. 6 months hospital a ton of stiches. He was using a .338 special so. if it wasnt for his back up he'd be dead. get ahold of the gunsmith in pritchard and he can tell you all about it.
Its about the memories we make and the stories we relive with our friends and family that makes life worth living.
