Stopping Bears

If you sit at home long enough while your inept utility company tries to figure out how to get electricity flowing to your home again, you start thinking about things you might not normally think about. (Yes, the power has been out here at Shadowland since Sunday.) Maybe its the hum of the generator or the fumes from the vent free propane logs, but I got to thinking about stopping bears.

Google produced THIS but I think Tim Sundles at Buffalo Bore Ammunition is probably a better source.

I’ve stopped a few bears. Luckily, none of them had decided to start hugging or chewing on me first. They were just minding there own business and I shot them. If you play in or are thinking about being in bear country, being able to stop a bear is something you might want to think about. HERE is some advice from Sundles, someone that knows a thing or two about stopping bears.
