    Unfortunately this was not shooting bears.

    The intent was not bad, however there was a disregard for basic firearms safety. Never shoot without identifying your target, and what's behind it.

    The hunter definitely is responsible, probably will be charged with negligent homicide.

    I found it interesting that he used a .270 to hunt bears. I guess he was hunting the black bears?

    I use a Barrett Lite .50 for bears and rabbits.
