    That is a pretty good sized animal. Nice shot indeed.

    Guess we can't use this quote anymore.......

    "We know of no one who has stopped a grizzly charge with a .44 Magnum, but we know several people who have tried." - Alaska Fish and Game Department

    Always wondered if that was a legit quote.

    Good work...

    I bet from now on he carries a reload.

    ".... with one shot remaining..." is a rather dismal phrase in relation to a wounded but still alive bear. Or anything.

    Unless he was saving that last shot for himself. I know I would, beats being mauled...

    A reload is always better though. I think I would have gone through several reloads (and changes of underwear) before I could walk back down to the trail.

    Dang, good takedown. Too bad about the bruin - I like to see them "from a distance".

    Maybe for those of us who tend towards "mouse guns" like the 40 S&W, a spare mag of a +P FMJ would be in order from now on?

    I took multiple rounds.Penetration is the main thing ,don't use a fragile bullet .at least a 240 gr. Don't use a 40 S&W it doesn't have the penetration.

    Scary!

    I used to hike up in the foothills behind Eagle River, without carrying a gun back then. Also hiked out across the other end of Fort Richardson ... my biggest concern then was watching out for helicopters, etc ;)

    We only took guns when going out on major hikes up by Talkeetna, or one time going over Crow Pass.

    I'm a lot smarter (?) or at least more wary now.

    Great, GREAT shooting! Think about it... he had to draw his gun and get off rapid, controlled, accurate shots at close (and closing) range, in the middle of an adrenaline dump (at least! :D ). Well done, that man! Outstanding!

    And look at the comparative size of the "hands"...

    what? my frangible lead dust held together by a drop of hardened liquid polymer wont cut it?

    :neener:

    i want to know how many hits the guy got, and what organs were damaged.

    looks like he did a good job skinning it as well. i cant even fillet a salmon and have it look edible when i'm done.

    That's something you don't read in the paper very often.

    A seecamp is a .32acp pocket pistol. Affectionately called a 'mousegun'.

    This is horrible! For one, that man had no right to be in the wild, much less carrying a dangerous weapon designed to kill. Further, he had no right to kill that poor, defenseless bear in defense of his own life. He should have dialed 911 and waited for the proper authorities to handle the situation. Also, that bear should have been in a zoo where it could have received proper nutrition and housing and remained safe from the predations of humans.

    I'm going to have to have a soy latte and calm my nerves before I call PETA.

    Which, of course, begs the question... :D

    Black bears killed in MVAs? Bears driving around Alaska? Must explain all the DUIoH (Driving Under Influence of Honey) arrests.

    This is truly a moment to THR history. Someone actually did the right thing and just shot the &^%$#@* critter and did not whimper and whine about the big, bad bear.

    Obviously the shooter is from Indiana as he did put up with any rubbish from a stupid animal. Outstanding.:cool:
