I just got back from a wonderful vacation at Jackson Hole, WY, USA for my wife's 50th BD (don't tell her I mentioned her age ;) ) We went to South Africa for my 50th (see threads https://www.africahunting.com/threa...-goes-buck-wild-pt-2.44862/page-3#post-668831 and https://www.africahunting.com/threa...-buck-wild-2018-pt-1.44702/page-4#post-668432) but I thought this was a good trip for her. We had a wonderful time in both in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone ( USA's Kruger) natl parks. It just so happened that the day before we visited Yellowstone, a Grizzly bear drowned a bull elk in the river and had drug it up on shore to eat. The back story to the video is that several bulls had been fighting (breeding season right now) up the hill (in video you see a herd of elk on the hillside). Apparently the bull injured his left back leg from fighting and the grizz bear took full advantage !! The grizz is the apex predator for North America and I guess the equivalent of a lion. We were able to witness the grizz burying the elk and eating on it the next day.
It's amazing that the kill was caught on video- here it is for you entertainment

We also got to see a very good Shiras bull moose tending a cow, herds of bison, pronghorns, a black bear sow and cub and several bull elk although I really thought we'd see a few more. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and the great weather compared to leaving the Texas heat and humidity !! I came home to Tropical Storm Beta sitting 60 miles SW of me :(

@AfricaHunting.com Yeah Jerome is this thread "dead" for some reason ?
Not at all, the thread is active. To watch the video one need to click on the link to view the video on YouTube as it will not play on other websites.

Here is the message from YouTube when you hit play:

Appreciate your info and feedback, I looked at some European websites to try and get info on the value of this particular Steyr. Further input from you on it's value would be appreciated as you have a bunch of them. I assume you collect the Steyr Luxus for a reason ---they are a finely built rifle.
I’ll never hunt Africa, but give me please a Jack O’Connor hunt up high in the Canadian Rockies!
Just came from a hunt and already longing for the bush
