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!!!
Dustin Artrip: What kind of 45lc were you using? I bought a Taurus judge to carry while fishing and camping. Wondering which load i should choose
BFerry10: The hard cast loads are a good choice for hunting larger game like bear. You will almost always get an exit hole with the heavy 45 Colt and 44 magnum loads. This can leave a good blood trail to follow.
lifted0422: after reading some of these comments on here people obviously have never hunted.one guy saying jump out of the tree and kill the bear with a knife wtf great hunt man
PinkOld: Watching the slowmo again, I can see the exit hole, so that was exactly the kind of shot placement and bullet performance you want. Just curious, but did you eat him? I've been told that black bear is pretty good if you know how to prepare it.
