"You shoot close behind the shoulder, for sure?" Denis demanded. I could still see the sight picture in my mind. "Right here," I said, putting my hand on the side of my chest. "Then he is dead," Denis replied, crossing himself. "But we haave to go into a bad place to find him. It's better to shoot a bear in the shoulder, not behind the shoulder. That way you anchor him with your first shot, then kill him with your second. We wait here half an hour, then go after him."
