Did this video help you?

Gisselle Zuniga: you suck ass

Larry Sledge Jr: did the bullet go through the bear? and what load are you using? and if you dont mind would you recommend the load your using be used for a 2 1/2 or a 3 inch barrel? reason i am asking these questions is i am planning to carry a 45 colt for bear protection with a flare gun that has a adpater that use's 45 colt/ 410 rounds.

need to know: Thank you for that video. I hate to see that bear have to get shot, but Its instructional for the rest of us. I have got a Uberti Schofield model 3 revolver shooting a Ultramax .45 Colt ammo 250 grain bullet at 820 fps for black bear protection here in New Mexico as a last line of defense. I understand that I would not go "hunting" for black bear intentionally with this round but after seeing your video I do feel safer that the bear would at least take notice that he was shot , if he was charging me. I have encountered black bear often alone while hiking and camping. And I previously only carried a 9 mm on me.

Ryan Harrell: I think a 45Colt is plenty for bear....I have taken multiple 300+ black bears in Ontario with my .243 with a nice 95gr jacketed bullet, and I've yet to have one make it more than 15yds....just make sure you have a nice hard bullett that's not gonna come apart and the 45 Colt is plenttty of gun. I'm taking my S&W Governor out to Montana in Grizz country, and with some solid rounds (not necessarily even a "hot" round) I am 1000% confident I could put a charging bear down, provided I don't miss it's head...there's a lot of speculation out there, but I see VERY few people speaking from experience. I have a LOT of respect for bears, took a 440 with a bow at 5yds, and they have an incredible will to survive, but the fact of the matter is a 45Colt can put down any North American animals inside 10yds, with the correct shot. In all honesty, if you hit a Grizz or brown with a damn 470 Nitro and it's not in the head, your not gonna put it down....people need to quit worrying about gun size, and more about shot placement with these creatures

augsburg74aya: nice shot, I carry a ruger new model black hawk in the woods with me in 45 colt hot loads from underwood, they are nasty on deer and wild boar, I have tasted bear meat several times and never really could get a taste for it, so I never really took a big interest in a hunt, good video ,

john surber: sir, the fact that you can't kill in one instantly is a issue but, it was quick so from an native American/ German good hunt brother!

Brett Duffy: I can only own black powder firearms because I got caught in New Jersey with an assault weapon according to their definition which was a BB gun

What a 44 caliber cap and ball revolver with about 60 to 100 foot pounds depending on the road but I have a brass frame so I can't go more than 20 grains of powder of energy kill a bear

George Juarez: Great shot, I hope to do the same this year with my new Ruger SRH 44

collie entragian: good shot

TREX3151: Hell yes! Got to love that 45.

thegatesofsleep: Nice kill bud. A lot of people think the .45 pistol can't take a bear down, glad to see people posting videos of it doing exactly that.

CDubs HasIt: It's official... 45 long colt takes down a bear.

Richard Dreadnought: And here comes Winnie the..BANG LOL

Damian cyhanick 133113: what model colt is that?

Brent Hall: Ignore the haters. The people who think it was not real hunting buy meat from someone else's killing. The "go hunt man" comments are from folks that aint right in the head. The people I know that I suspect killed in the wars would not talk about it, and surely would not post it on YT.

Sean Nishan: that bad killing bear you will get karma someday

Derek LaRose: and people say 45 acp isn't sufficient. maybe a little slower in a 3-5 inch barrel but for defense. I'll carry my 45 instead of 9.

Paul Mendoza: Love a hot 45 Colt cartridge. Even 130 years ago it was a formidable round when used at alot lower pressures with black powder. Those before us used those 45's with great effect on even larger game.

I laugh at these people who value animal life over humans. They don't understand the first thing about putting food on the table and animal population control. They would be dead without supermarkets and would wonder why local eco systems are in shambles with over runs of animal populations.

We are humans. God gave us dominion. Go tell a native American that it's wrong to hunt and that we must eat only what is provided for us.

Craig: Looks little more than a cub.

Ethan Carlson: Between me and my brother, we've killed and eaten over a dozen black bears.  So I can relate to your video on a visceral level.  All my kills have been made with a 30 caliber rifle, but my brother has taken three with Ruger Bisley a revolver in 45 Colt.  He turned me on to his revolver this weekend when I visited him for some target shooting.  Now I'm on the prowl for a Ruger Bisley stainless 5.5" in 45 Colt.  My bro' loads 335 gr. Lead Head bullets at 1260 fps out of his 5.5" gun.  Believe me, it kicks like a mule!  I'm built very light, so I had a hard time controlling the recoil, and I need to learn better technique.  But I hope to take my next bear with a 45 Colt.  Thanks for the excellent video in every way!  Have you ever smoked and cured a bear ham?  It's better than corned beef!!!
