One Shot Take Down


Recommended Posts

I was walking through TWM on my 4th attempt to complete the Hopeless Rescue Challenge when I came across a black bear. It hadn't seen me yet so I crouched and started creeping up the side of the hill hoping I could just remain unseen and the bear would just walk the direction I was coming from. Still had my rifle handy though. It was about halfway past me when I shifted the slightest bit. Next thing I know it roars and beginnings lumbering up the hill side directly towards me. I aim my rifle and boom! the bear just collapses on spot. I was so shocked that a) hit my mark and b) killed it with just ONE shot. I've only had one bear kill previously so this was very exciting for me!

Well done.  :)

"One shots" do tend to be a bit rare, but very possible with both bear and moose.  I've noticed that they seem a little more likely if you can land a clean head-shot during a charge (I managed a single shot take down of a moose just yesterday - with a revolver no less :D).

Taking down a large target with a single shot is a great and satisfying rush (just remember not to count on it every time).  :)
