    Here again, I always think back to the book 'All About Bears' by Duncan Gilchrist. "Seldom in my experience (he had a lot) has the 375 (H&H) made quick kills on big bears. Three hits to the vitals has been average"


    ​Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!

    Renting the 30-06 Mausers offers a big advantage. If it fails to stop the bear, you can sue the outfitter.
