Big Bear w/Munchies

Lake Tahoe's uninvited dinner-guest.

A gigantic, bullet-scarred black bear with a hankering for human food and a knack for breaking and entering has been terrorizing homeowners on the north shore of Lake Tahoe and deftly outmaneuvering gun-toting rangers, bear dogs and traps.

Ah yes - the good old "nitro express". The .375 Holland and Holland round. Damn, Dad - still another thing we have in common. Ability to dispatch rogue bears, should they appear in our yard.

Actually, I don't have a .375 H&H OR a .416.

Just small-power: a .30-06.

But now my Christmas list is just a bit longer.

On the other hand, I don't live where that bear does, and I think a .30-06 would be sufficient, bear-forehead or not.

Personally, I'd rather have a .50 sniper rifle, but they are a bit unwieldy for 'around the house' stuff.
