These two gents were calling elk in the Saddle Hills south of working when this big guy slipped in on the caller.

The shooter spotted the bear 8 yards from the caller and dropped him with 5 shots out of his 338 Rem 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 notice on surveillance video that when ever a he would enter 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 check out the scar tissue on his face.

Bear weighed in just under 1300 pounds and would have stood 11 ¾ feet tall on its hind legs.
