“The [400 pound] bear was shot by a slender young lady friend of mine from east Texas,” Jim Green of downeastgunworks.com writes. “She worked really hard for this bear and has been after him for about 3 years now. She got him this morning at first light. The bullet struck the bruin in the flank on a quartering away shot. He dropped from a single shot, but it did pulverize his insides a bit . . .
The video [below] is fairly graphic in nature. Some of your viewers of a more sensitive nature might take offense. But this is how many of us feed ourselves instead of opting to buy cute little styrofoam packages of meat from the supermarket. Well someone somewhere has to put that meat in the styrofoam plastic wrapped packages for us.
I had to help my lady friend with cleaning the entrails from the carcass, as she wasn’t entirely familiar with just how to do that. Her boyfriend seems to not be overly familiar with the process either. As I said, I hope this isn’t too graphic for you.”
I get the pro-hunting proselytizing, but I’m not sure why the newbie’s gender made any difference. To paraphrase the old saying, God made men and women. The Model 742 Remington .308 made them equal to a 400 pound bear.
Anyway, this is The Truth About Guns. Our remit includes what happens when people use guns. At the risk of seeming insensitive to the more squeamish amongst you, rest assured that no bear gonads were hurt during this dressing process. According to Mr. Green, “It ruins the meat.”
