  • Bears Again

    My wife just informed me that there was another bear attack in the Anchorage area.

    I am not clear at this point, just how this is my fault. I don't even live there anymore.

    We are not fools, who pack around bear medicine, and/or keep it handy. But for those who claim to enjoy living in close proximity of these vicious predators, I hope they are thrilled.

    Get outcher guns boys, and girls. Clean'em, Oil'em, Familiarize with'em, shoot'em, cuz you might need'em.

    Don't keep any candybars in your pocket lest you be cited for baiting them.

    Stay off the trails, and let your dawgies walk themselves. Too many skeeters anyway.

    According to the article it was on a road in ER by a handgun. I would be curious as to what caliber/gun it was. Anybody hear anything about it?

      ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, it is a delightful place to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

            Ain't that the dang truth!

            Some people in the comments of the KTUU article had the nerve to defend that bear as if the guy did something wrong....insanity. I can't fathom why people think an animals life is more important than a humans.

              How did you find this out? I'd be interested in finding out his set up, what type of holster, bullet grain size, did it knock the bear back immediatly? Rare to hear about a guy that got bit AND was able to deploy a weapon, usually its one or the other - got mauled, or shot before it got to ya.

                ADN . com listed the handgun as a .44 mag, no other details on it.

                  They certainly try to leave the impression that it's a terrible shame the bear had to die, assuming it did, and that the bear is never to be blamed for doing what bears will do. The latter is true, of course, but it is not germane beyond the simple fact.

                  What bugs me, is they always interview ADF&G who are always so very PC, concerning bears, which as you've already said, exhibit's more concern for the bears than people.

                  As I understand what was said, the bear was biting him on one of his hands whilst he got his gun and shot the bear with the other hand, and the bear wasn't a large one.

                  Yet, he didn't go to the hospital. Go Figger. I would think any bear bite would be serious, so maybe the bear bit him at virtually the same time it was shot. ???

                    Smitty:
                    KTUU reported that he refused an ambulance, but that his wife drove him to the hospital. Can't imagine getting bitten and not needing to get the wound looked at- at least to be irrigated well and get some antibiotics. Sometimes infections are due to what the animal had in its mouth/teeth and not from the actual bite itself.

                    I love to watch bears but the whole reason for carrying when out an about is exactly what he experienced. I am glad he was able to draw and shoot before a dog or he got killed.

                      I have meet a lot of humans who's life is worth less than a wild animals to me. In fact I know some scumbags that it would please the poop out me if they got mauled by a grizzly.

                          I have as well, but I tend to give someone I have never met or know nothing about the benefit of the doubt

                              I've had just one but back in '08 a trip from the Cartee softball complex to Providence cost $1700. I was in the ambulance for 8, maybe 9 minutes. I refused to have IV painkillers otherwise it would've been another grand or so.
