    How could he have not gone to the bathroom? If a grizzly runs up behind me, first: I'm gonna say it, "OH, SHI." and then I'm gonna do it. :eek:

    Yep, a big +1 on that... Although one may be tempted to point out the overpenetration of the .460 load...

    Now I know what Sindawe was referring to when he said that him and his bros practice "tactical squat" tactics.

    I once was camping outside of Yellowstone Park in Wyoming with a bunch of guys. We had a makeshift portable toilet, and one guy had actually brought a toilet seat to put on it because he didn't want to sit on bare wood. After a few days we noticed teeth marks in the toilet seat where some animal had chewed it up.

    Everybody in camp started joking to the seat owner how a bear had tried to eat the toilet seat. After that, he wanted people to stand guard over him while taking a dump. The fellow was really obnoxious and couldn't find any takers.

    Back in 1970, my new bride and I only had 3 days for our honeymoon. I borrowed my dad's truck and camper, and we drove along the beautiful coastline of California. When we reached the Carmel area, it was our turn-around spot, but we made the best of it. There's a coastal drive, called the "17 mile drive", that weaves through a forested area next to the ocean, and there are several expensive "estates" located within it.

    During a walk, we were in the forest, and I heard a sound to my left. A "picture-perfect" deer had stirred when he heard us. I grabbed my camera and snapped as soon as I was able to focus on that beautiful animal....but the deer had OTHER ideas!
    He (yes, it was a huge buck) must not have feared humans, for he quickly squatted and took a HEALTHY dump as I snapped the camera! I was less than 30 feet from him when I took that photo! My presence didn't seem to bother him, for his next move was to do some "hygiene", for he "wiped" his rear-side against one of the trees before gingerly trotting further into the forest!

    In all of the years that I've been deer hunting, I've NEVER seen a deer take a dump! I'm sure that it's the same for bear hunters, for the question of, "Do bears poop in the woods?" often gets asked! HAHA!

    Ain't life GRAND?

    Back in the late '60s, Nguyen Quet was the Robin Hood of Northern I Corps. He was one bad VC. We tried to trap him all sorts of ways.

    One day a kid from P Company, 75th Rangers (our brigade Ranger company) was answering the call of nature. He saw a hat moving over the brush, so he simply rose from his squatting position, and BANG!

    That was the end of Nguyen Quet.:D

    I read the titled story on the Alaska hunting forum, and most of those guys don't believe his story. Since they know the area and the conditions, I tend to believe them over an internet story.

    Oldtimer, a few years back I was hiking up in the Little Belt Mountains and spotted a bear at a distance digging up old logs and stumps and generally minding his own business. I decided to see if I could get a little closer, so I dropped back below the crest of the hill and walked carefully in the bear's general direction. For the record, bears apparently don't hear and see all that well compared to some wild animals like deer, and as long as you stay downwind, don't make too much noise, and stand still when they look at you, you can get amazingly close.

    Which I proceeded to do ... within about 25 yards. And about that time, the bear proved that they really do poop in the woods - I should have had a camera to catch him in the act.

    Funny thing is that the bear looked all around right before doing his business just like a person would :D
