....like in the upper lip of an Alaskan Brown Bear.
Would be kinda neat to know the story behind that!! When used to trap beaver, I'd always find bird shot in the hides.
I had a similar experience with a large black bear taken in New Mexico, his back end and both back paws were full of bird shot. They were all healed over so no evidence of it from the outside. Things that make you go hmm.
I've seen it in quite a few bears around here. I've even found rubber buck shot pellets in them too. The most interesting one had to be the cow elk that birdshot in its lower front legs. I wish I knew the story there as it was shot many miles from any haystacks or fields.
I had a 500# black bear that must have been visiting bird feeders and when I fleshed him he had bird shot in his ears, face and lips and when I got to the feet his ass and bottoms of his back feet had quite a few pellets in them also "must have been while he was running away"
I had a whitetail I skinned a couple months ago that had two pellets in his ear
Just had a trapped mink with a #4 birdshot at the base of his tail - healed over.
We find 22 bullets along with shotgun pellets in elk, deer, and cattle in the meat processing side of our shop
Nate there might not be any living person to tell that story. Kinda like taking a knife to a gun fight.
Grilled up the some Canada Goose wrapped in bacon this summer, took my first bite and felt something hard and metal. Spit it out expecting a BB but it turned out to be a .22 bullet. Everything was all healed over on the bird.
I caught a coyote 4 seasons ago that had a full load of number 2 birdshot in its rear that was healed up and a bullet hole just above its eye that had started to heal.
The bullet had grazed the yot and left a hole the size of a nickel plus the skull was cracked across the top of its head from front to back.
Other then that he was just fine and ready to fight till a 22 to the heart ended him, got the hide hanging in the shop.
One tuff SOB
LOL, you'ld better ask the Griz, where the bird shot came from, I'm pretty sure the man that shot the six shot, ain't around any longer to tell the "tale"! LOL!
