You know about fake news. I saw this posted on line years Ago. It said then " 11 year old kills brown bear with bird shot."
Nowhere did it say "Elliot had birdshot as his top round in his shotgun to scare a bear off should they see one. Fortunately the rest of his shots were slugs." back then in 2017.
Regardless, the 11yr old had a big ol pair of brass hanging to keep him steady while a brown bear is coming point blank.
Stamp his man card "paid in full".
Brown bear we don't have but danger we do, wild boar.And which one did you take down a charging brown bear with?
But it's just sad that Ol' Yeller had to die.Brown bear we don't have but danger we do, wild boar.
The Model 37 with no.1 buckshot. I was 12. It was my first deer hunt. The male piney woods rooter dress out at 376lbs and had 7 1/2 inch tusks. It charged me from heavy cover of a bottom. Only one pellet of the 32 pellets from the two shots got passed the hide into the spine and broke him down. Buck shot has been known to bounce off hogs down here. The dogs were close and got on him. Jim put a slug behind his ear after we got most of the dogs caught up. The brush is so thick here north of the coast we use short leg dogs like beagles. Larger red beagles for deer and little lemon spot beagles for rabbits. You don't run game down like a large walker hound, trig, blue tick or black and tan will but just get them moving out of the bottom. You put hand full of guys around a hollow and one or two guys take the little dogs into the bottom and push them out. The dogs and drivers rarely see the game. The deer don't have to run as beagles don't move fast on short legs. Never look where you hear the dogs. The deer are way out in front moving rather slow and stealthy. We call it slipping.
