Wow. Does this ring a bell. The guys name is Bridger! Fitting. Here's someone that's kin to that bear.

Couple of things here.

1) Bears get a little pissed when fighting off hounds. I would have been locked and loaded. The bear instantly viewed everything except itself as a threat.

2) As already mentioned I dont know why the camera came out. Cinnamon color or not. I guess he was trying to mind meld with the creature. Well, the bear sure shared its thoughts.

3) Body shots to the bear. Head. Head. Head.

Well, I see I will run out of numbers here so I'm not going any further. This guy learned a BIG lesson. I can't believe they had to cut the head off like a damn snapping turtle.

The bear was coming for him. Bridger elected not to aim for the head. He didn’t want to hit one of his dogs...
That's admirable, I suppose. Man's best friend and all that.

But then I read this:

Quote:
Bridger decided to retreat. He turned and hopped to the next boulder, then the next. He was mid air to the third when he saw dogs moving past him...
Next time, screw the dogs and go for the head.

The dogs must have heard about the old adage that they don't have to be able to outrun the bear, they just have to be able to outrun their owner.

A guide died in Wyoming this week from an attack and his clients got mauled. I'm working in grizzly country this week and so far all I have seen is black bears and a cub's claw marks going up a big ponderosa.

Still not sure why decapitating the bear was important...

Saw this in the news today. He didn't need a pistol or other...

So, shot placement matters? Who'd have thought?

I read about that one. The client stated he pulled a handgun out from a pack, but feared hitting the guide that was being mauled. He then threw the handgun at the guide and ran away.

I sincerely hope that every time he closes his eyes, he relives his guide being mauled to death. Forever.

Should have aimed for the pelvic girdle.

A surprising amount of folks talk 'bear' when buying an OutDoorsman Holster. They're going into Bear Country and. . . .(fill in the blank).

The exciting/interesting part is the weapons they choose to carry. They are typically asking about retention, how fast can I draw from this carry position, etc. All while ignoring the fact they're ordering a holster for a pea-shooter/pocket gun.

Was n Alaska a few years ago with two families on ram, bear hunt. The outhouse was about 75 yards from the cabin. The rule... nobody went to the outhouse without the .44 mag.
Amazing how the women no longer had to go to the bathroom...

When they did go, did they go as a group?

Sounds like they couldn't extract his leg from the dead bear's mouth, and it was easier to transport the victim without the entire bear attached to his leg.
