If you’re bow hunting you can’t have a handgun with you. otherwise your stuck with what the regulations say you can have with you depending on season.Hello
Next season I plan to hunt deer in Arkansas. I am told that from time to time bears pass through the lease. With this in mind, what is a good, dependable handgun (that won’t break the bank) to carry for protection? I hear that the Glock 20 (10 mm) is a solid choice. Any other guns to consider?
Those are 2 Fine-Looking revolvers !!!So after the past three years of hunters and trappers catching pics of Grizz in our area, Idaho Fish & Game has admitted that they are here. We currently have five in my hunting area which starts 1 mile from my house.
I know black bears. I have been close enough to shake hands on more than a few occasions. Aside from an angry sow on occasion they just want to get through life without being bothered. I have only had to pepper spray two blackies in 40+ years of hunting.
Grizz on the other hand, I want nothing to do with them. I saw a 900 pound Grizz from 15' away a few years ago and they are an entirely different bear.
I still carry pepper spray, but I also carry big bear medicine now.

The assumption any animal isn't dangerous is what gets people in trouble.Right up to the point that they are not
Nice to see you Budonly time I had a scare was when a raccoon got stuck in a bait barrel. Don’t know how he got stuck, or how long he was in there . All I know is he was very ready to get out. When I lifted the lid just a little, he made his move. He knocked the lid out of my hands , I screamed like a girl, pee’d myself and maybe sh$t a little also. I thought the devil had me. I’ll never open a bait barrel again without whacking it with a stick first.
