Bear hunt in Tjäruträsk
I am sending a few pictures of a male bear, which we shot in Tjäruträsk today, 26 August, with the help of two of our dogs. Just look at the caps! We kept the bad-tempered bear at bay beforehand for almost four hours. After draining the blood, it still weighed 241 kg. Emil Nyström from Forsbyn fired the actual shot naturally with an Oryx 18.5 g in his rifle.
Yours sincerely, Johan Hellman, Sweden
