400 pounds, taken with one shot from Crockett rifle. The bear
came through right at dark, but the silver blade showed up perfectly for a shot.
Bear went 30 yards before piling up. Bullet hole can be seen right behind
shoulder. Two .48 caliber balls and 100 grains of 3 fg were loaded and did
the job quite nicely.
