I took my daughter out to one of my bear baits last night.
she sat patiently.

Even though Ma nature had the stand rocking like a boat in choppy water, and alas at around 7:00PM the winds abaited and about 5 minutes later we had visitors.

After all the noise it was time for some pictures.

http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b28/Dick284/DSCF0237.jpg


She used my Ruger #1 RSI in 7x57 shooting Hornady RN 154gr. bullets at a consrvative 2350fps.

The bear made it 20 yds.

Her first bear and what a charge it was to see her, so excited she exclaime she needed to pee so bad but could'nt get out of the stand for her trembling legs, she did make it out of the stand and she proclaimed the urgency was just her nerves...But wow, what a girl and although not the biggest bruin out there (5') she sure aint complaining.

Very nice! Congrats to you and your daughter. I was hoping to get my first bear today, too...but didn't find one (can't throw a beaver in the woods down here)...and then it started snowing. Hard. Maybe in a couple of weeks...

But you forgetting Cat, I bought that rifle as one the kids could use...Guess it all works out in the end.

I will pass the congrats on to her for sure. Friday night shooting bears, Saturday night she's over at her friends getting her hair dyed....Gotta wish there were more girls like that out there.

Let's see 14 yrs old and to date, 2 WT bucks, 1 doe, and now a bear...I'm worried what will come next.:scared:

Well like they say, take them hunting that way you don't have to hunt after them.:innocent:;):cool:

04-25-2010, 09:50 AM
Thanks for sharing your pictures on this.
It did my heart good to see them.
Thanks again.

Its better to hunt with your kids than hunt for them.
Anybody out there with a kid in their lives, take them hunting today. It's important.

Sorry to hear of the loss of your rifle!!
I suspect it will be returned to you in the form of a confident, independent, loving young lady.

Consider it an excellent trade.

Congratulations to both of you.

Great bear! Nice shootin! Did dad get so excited from the shot he stopped recording?

Nope,
Dad put the camera down in favor of the B/U rifle, but that was'nt needed as the bear decided that a stump hole from a blown over spruce was the best place to give it up.

Taking a good thread about a childs success and bringing out nothing but negatives is really a badge of honour to be proud of.

Run along and find something better to do with your time.

If you look at the picture , the gun is well in front of the young lady and the muzzle is in the air.
I really don't think the pic warrants the response you gave it.

thats ridiculous to even venture to say rifle handling in the photos was incorrect.i know dick personally:he is a steward for gun safety and be sure his family will be taught to follow suit.

Its ok gaterless, it is tough to see a great hunter such as this young lady tagging out while your sitting at home nit picking photos on your computer.
