    I started out looking for links to Bear Attacks where the victim used a gun, for the Hunting Forum, but found these and thought it would be a good topic for this forum.

    These stories reveal why every responsible adult should pack a gun, and in some of the stories, someone did have a gun.

    I figure that being able to relate some of these encounters would be a plus when antis ask, "why do you need a gun?"

    If you have similar links, please post them.

    How viscous?

    Sounds like a sticky situation to me...

    Huh? How did that get by my spell checker? I don’t think it is possible to change the title of the post so I guess this will become a Mecca for the spelling police.

    PS: I actually do know how it got passed the spell checker

    The ADN archives are full of bear attack and "knock over" incidents as well as self-defense shootings. The primary theme running through all the incidents is how fast it hits the fan. You have only a second or two to get whatever you've got up and operational.

    MachIV,

    I'm sorry about that. It's unfortunate that my attack of "intelligent Equus asinus" came right at the start of your thread... I hope that I didn't hijack it entirely.

    Actually, the most dangerous animals (in terms of the frequency of attack) tend to be the ones that are most common, or are most often in close proximity to humans.

    That's why there are such a number of threads on dog attacks.

    Every time I go to a customer's house...

    "Oh, he won't bite. He's all bark. Just let him smell you and he'll lick you to death".

    My ass. :scrutiny:

    How about you teach your dog to not jump and bark at people the secodn they walk through the door instead of me standing here like an idea waiting to see if the dog is going to lick me or rip my arm off.

    By the time animals become viscous, we usually don't need to worry about them - we just avoid them, from a long distance.

    I think it depends on how vicious the human is.

    With polar bears, I guess it wouldn't really matter though.

    Puma Poop looks like rope... it's mostly deer hair.

    Carrying a pistol in a safepacker on a hike makes more sense in the lower 48.

    So now we know where you got bit.

    Carrying a pistol anywhere makes sense.

    "...How did that get by my spell checker?..." Spell check doesn't find correctly spelt words.

    In Arizona (and other states, I'm told) for some reason it's against the law to carry any firearm while archery hunting, even if you have a CCW license. I can understand them not wanting archery hunters to be cheating and using long arms, but they don't even want people carrying handguns! :banghead:

    Last year I was archery hunting for elk in Northern Arizona and a mountain lion tracked me down and got within 5 yards of me. I'm big and looked bigger in my coat, but the cat still came that close. I was watching for it because I'd seen it the night before, but it snuck up on me from my 12 o'clock while I was watching my 7 o'clock position. I turned around and saw it at that 5 yard mark and pulled the .45 I was carrying (illegally). I think the combination of being seen and me making a lot of quick movement scared the cat off. I didn't have to fire a shot.

    My mind goes back to that scene when I think of going anywhere there might be vicious animals. I will always carry in the woods, illegal or not. If I have to, I'll make an animal a viscous pile of blood, meat and fur!

    Same thing here in UT during Muzzloader. My buddy actually had a similar experience just last week. He was sprawled out napping waiting for someone when he heard heavy breathing. When he looked up, a Mountain lion was within 10' of him, low, with its ears down, looking at him. He grabbed for his muzzloader and it ran off.

    My advice to him was to illegally carry his snubnose. He's an ethical hunter, and wasn't very keen on that idea. I'd rather loose my hunting privelages than my life.

    It's illegal to carry a gun (or slingshot, oddly enough) in PA state parks. I think it was intended to be an anti-poaching law, but it has yet to be changed to make a CCW exception.

    Our wild animals are pretty laid back (black bear sows with cubs notwithstanding) but the bipedal primates have been known to cause trouble now and then.
