I know of some airplane owners and hunters use that use these to protect their planes when they're away hunting. Just don't forget about them in the middle of the night when you go out to pee.

Moral of the story... dont give a bear a reason to mess with you...

Reminds me a situation I read about a couple of years ago. A group of hikers were confronted by a grizz. Two of the group sprinted towards some trees. The bear ran right through the group, tackled the the slower of the two runners, roughed him up a bit and then ran down the other one. F...ing idiots!

Re: Predators?????????

Well maybe my mentality has changed just slightly w/ bears -i'll be a little more lenient and i'll get some bear spray..Wouldn't really want to shoot a bear b/c he/she was feeling their oats for a second or two.

Saw a dangerous situation on TV the other day -a bow hunter and his camera man were up in tree stands very close together.There was a sow w/two cubs eating at their bait station when a big boar bear was sensed by momma bear -she sent the cubs up the nearby trees -you guessed it -one went right up the tree w/ the two men.It ran up and past them on the backside of the tree -got scared and bawled a bit for momma -she just let him bawl because of the male bear.
The big male went straight to the bait and started eating -and the hunter put a braodhead right through his shoulder.
There was a little shuffling around by the baby bear then a few nervous words -couldn't see much for the camera shaking badly -then the little bear ran down and past the two hunters and off he went.
Anyway it could have been a bad deal had momma bear seen here cub up there above the two men -the bowhunter was ready to shoot her though.

Re: Predators?????????

I've carried a Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 openly for 25 years while hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, panning gold, etc. Never had any problems with any thing, or any body, nor do I lose any time worrying about two or four legged predators in the backcountry. My wife is trained to shoot it capably also and will soon have her own Blackhawk in 357.
