Seemed more important to get the hunt on film than making a good clean ethical shot.

Members of the dumb masses are just that.I love it when people take to the net to tell the world they are morons as if its a virtue. Damn shame the bear did not eat at least one of them.
That was my answer...If the answer is "it depends" then we cant judge others for taking too long of a shot. Ive heard too many stories from old timers of elk "needing" 5 or 6 shots with a 30-06... at 100yds or less.
IMO a "long shot" is anything farther than MPBR zero but that doesnt mean one isnt experienced enough to make the shot. In the two videos Osprey cited all the shots were on target and within the terminal velocity of the caliber.
I agree.And I will judge or even damn 'em...
If they knowingly took a shot that was beyond their skill at taking a hunting shot.
Yes. Just not brown bears or grizz in AK.I'm not super invested in getting an answer to this question.
Any of these peoples hunting videos include harvesting the meat?
Can't help it . I automatically dislike anyone wearing kooey
It seems to be the thing the young guys wearing Sitka gear they show up and look like a thousand dollar bill
Yes, it is standard practice. If you have ever taken a bite from a bear that has gorged for weeks on dead salmon, dead whale, or winter killed carrion, you will understand why.Skimmed the video in places so maybe I missed it but I didn't hear where they harvested anything other than the hide and skull. Is that standard practice for a brown bear?
Yeah they had a load made for different conditions probably made during the summer at max pressure witch under the conditions they where in, it blew the primer out on there reloads thus getting stuck in the action. One is none two is one, if it can happen it will happen.with 2 shots in the vitals then this is just one tough bear. They listed their errors including long range shooting but the real reason they got in trouble was stated by the other guy that explained their over pressure handload blew a primer that fell into the action jamming the cycling of the next round. If that didnt happen they would have landed more rifle shots on the bear before it reached them. It sounds like long range shooting wasnt the factor.
They yelled at the bear before they shot it to get it to stand up. I would use a suppressor so the bear has a harder time pin pointing you from sound.So if you hit a bear at 400 ish yards, and it starts running toward you. Has it located you by the sound, the smell, sight, etc?
I’m just wondering how it knows which direction to run in to go kill those hunters?
Ah, that makes sense.They yelled at the bear before they shot it to get it to stand up. I would use a suppressor so the bear has a harder time pin pointing you from sound.
Kuiu on sale baby! I bought pants and a jacket last year. It was great!Well, I have more money than brains and still can't afford Sitka or Kui. Wait, what?
I just can't picture Walt Longmire in Kuiu. I can't.Kuiu on sale baby! I bought pants and a jacket last year. It was great!
i give my friends and co workers a hard time for wearing expensive camo.Can't help it . I automatically dislike anyone wearing kooey
I have zero problems with hunters who do it legally and "right". I have a LOT of problems with morons who venture off to "shoot at" animals.Yeah, I have another take. If those shots would have been taken at half that distance I believe the outcome would have been different.
