    I spent 3 months in Alberta working with a very keen hunter, he had over 100 firearms/bows etc, the stories he would tell were at times outrages. He had shot everything that could be shot legally. He did say that he had shot Bear but it tasted disgusting, he thought it had been living on Juniper Berries as it's main diet and the meat was seriously tainted by it.

    Would love to get back over there now and go out with him .

    Hope you have a good season.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    thanks tj

    your dead right about bear meat ,it really can be tainted by its diet!

    eating bears that have been eating meat or fish is a no no!

    my meat bears are normally early spring before the moose calfs and deer fawns are born ! bears give the newborns a tough time!
