    Good to have a friend to cover your back!!!

    I got this in an Email so I can't vouch for the truth and accuracy of the story, but it sounds like a hair-raising outing!

    Big Bear shot Maroon Bells Snowmass Wilderness, Colorado , Sept. 21, 2011

    These two gents were calling elk in the Maroon Bells Snowmass Wilderness of Western Colorado, when this big guy slipped in on the caller.

    The Shooter spotted the bear about 8 yards from the caller and dropped him with 5 shots out of his 338 Win Mag.

    Farmers in the area knew about the bear but weren't able to track after it had killed 3 horses, 5 cows, 13 sheep and a pen full of chickens on several different homesteads in the area.

    Fish and wildlife had bear traps set up in the area but noticed on surveillance video that whenever he would enter a trap, his hump would hit the top of the culvert trap slowing him enough that the trap door would wack him on the head before he was all the way in the rear.

    Bear weighed in just under 1300 pounds and would have stood 11 feet tall on its hind legs...

    Some hunters shot a big bear (nov where close to 1300 lbs) and that is probably all that is "real" in this story.
