Hunting with Boulder Creek Outfitters in Idaho at their Joseph Camp our group of 3 hunters (all using Hornady ammunition) all filled their tags with color phase bears. This 6' bear (6'2" x 5'11") was taken right on Cottonwood Creek (he is still soaking wet) in Hunting Area 13. This was the first bear I've ever taken. The best part was that my step-dad and Hornady employee, Gary Lassen, got to share the experience and also get his first bear. A childhood friend also joined us and got his first bear. It was the first time hunting with either of them in over 20 years.
