    That sure seems like an adrenaline filled hunt. If I was the videographer I think I would have had a pistol aimed at the bear instead of a camera!

    I hunted in Maine. There they put out bait barrells and you can set in a ground blind or tree stand. I choose a ground blind. It was nice in the rain. The bear appeared at the bait on the third night of the hunt. I shot him with a 358 Browning Lever action at about 60yards. I used a 225 grain nosler handload at 2300 fps. I will have a rug made with a open mouth head in it. The average bear there is not that large but have really thick fur. I would guess he will square at four feet. Will make a nice wall rug. That week seven bear were shot out of eight hunters. The guy who did not get a bear turned down a small one and missed another. There must be a pile of bear in Northern Maine.
