Nice bear taken out on Fallen Timber Road. I wonder though ... the media reports indicate he shot it at least five times, maybe more. What did he do, reload several times? Hunters can't use rifles in Allegheny County, only shotguns with slugs (see SPECIAL REGULATIONS AREAS ( http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.p... ) so if he was using a shotgun it has a plug, right? That requires reloading to shoot it that many times. I heard he was deer hunting. Guess he just happened to have a bear license.
