Looking for the stuff. Have moved from the other place since we last spoke.
Here is a good read from near where Vance lives.

This guy lives just outside of Soldotna.
Have I got a story for you guys!King season is over, and since I had a day off before silvers start, I thought I would go for a walk! This occurred at 11:16 am this morning (Sunday), just 2/10 of a mile from my house, ON OUR ROAD while walkingmy dogs (trying to get in shape for hunting season, ironically!). For therecord, this is in a residential area末not back in the woods, nobow hunting, no stealth occurring...I heard a twig snap, and looked back...full on charge-a huge brownie,ears back, head low and motorin' full speed! Came with zero warning; nowoof, no popping of the teeth, no standing up, nothing like what youthink or see on TV! It charged from less than 20 yards and was on me in
About one-second! Totally surreal-I just started shooting in the generaldirection, and praise God that my second shot (or was it my third?)rolled him at 5 feet and he skidded to a stop 10 feet BEYOND where I wasshooting from-I actually sidestepped him and fell over backwards on thelast shot, and his momentum carried him to a stop past where I fired myfirst shot!It was a prehistoric old boar末no teeth, no fat末weighing between 900-1000 lbs and took five men to DRAG it onto a tilt-bed trailer! Big bear-itspaw measured out at about a 9 1/2 footer!
Never-ever-thought "it" would happen to me! It's always some other smuck, Right? Well, no bull- I am still high on adrenaline, with my gut in a Knot. Feels like I did 10000 crunches without stopping! Almost puked foran hour after, had the burps and couldn't even stand up as the troopers
Conducted their investigation! Totally wiped me out-cant even put thatfeeling into words, by far the most emotion I have ever felt at once!No doubt that God was with me, as I brought my Ruger .454 Casull (andsome "hot" 350 grain solids) just for the heck of it, and managed todraw and snap shoot (pointed, never even aimed!) from the hip! Total
Luck shot!All I can say is Praise God for my safety and for choosing to leave thewife and kids at home on this walk! Got a charter tomorrow, so gonna TRYto get some sleep now!
Talk to ya soon, -Greg
