here something that came up in a talk about owning handguns and rifles .i was told that i had a nice arsenal by this guy who was waiting in line with us when we where wanting to pay for coffee and sandwichs this morning after giveing them the order and we where waiting for our order to come up .. .he replyed that nice arsenal you got there as stood waiting for the sandwichs and coffee .
i started to talked to the guy and explained to him that the diff handguns and rifles for diff use some where for self defense use and some where handgun hunting and some where for back country bear defense when out hikeing the back woods area around the land i own up there and for back county camping trips dureing the summer time when everyone goes fishing and the bears also going fishing at the same stream that you are in ...he ask me was bears that much of a problem in the backcounty area so people we say yes and some people will say no and i told him the reason behind that saying ..
it better to have something that will stop a bear it better to be armed and be safe in the back county we went to the table i showed him the one picture of the bear that was taken and he said that is on bigger animal it on my laptop as a desktop screen saver .i also said you got to see a moose there also ..
when we where at the table my friend and i was telling him this we told him that if you use commen sense in the back county was to keep your eyes open and your head on a sviwel and keep a good look out for them and other animals when out in the back county you will cut down on a lot of the incounters that people have but you are going to have those socalled oh-s-- type momnets when rounding a trail head there sits a moose or bear in the middle of the path way ..
that way a lot of hikers in the backcounty keep bells on the packs to make noise when walking on trails there .and you can go around them need be plus be on the look out for bear scat and other signs that they are in the area and you do ok ..
as we got up to leave the guy said thank you for i never hunted and i was allways wondering about it .. he also said that he allways thought that hunting was done by people who never used the meat or hides for anything wanted the head as a trophy to mounted on the wall
both my friend and i told him this the meat is taken dureing the hunt is going into the family freezer and it help feed the family through the year along with the meat is used from everything from tacos to meatloafs and hambugers and breakfast sausages up her in family meals menus and it stetchs the family food money a lot father at times and he went on his way and my friend and i walked down to the courthouse to begin the day ..
as we where walking towards the court house my friend was asking if i had been able to go hunting up there i told no i been down here everytime a season i wanted to try has come into season i was down here with you guys and i really starting to hate you guys for it when i go and see the hunting pics that they guys where posting on the website ..my friend started to laugh and said to maybe next year you get your hunting fix in and i said this to my friend .. i do not get my fix in because of you guys keeping me down here iam going to get on a plane and not come back out the bush intill i get my tags filled and then worry about geting into trouble for it later ..he said they send the some people after you ..i told you got to find me first and alaska a big place to start looking ..
to me each rifle and pistol i own is a tool to do a job i need to do so that why the diff tools in the tool box for hunting ...but to others i guess it does look like a arsenal to them..
i got to go now they are calling people for court now .. i will check back at a later time ..
