Hi,
Just saw this and thought I would pass it along.
As the boyscouts always say, "Be prepared"....

Wow, just wow.

Kind of strange behavior by a bear. Usually they run away fast.

As a father of 4 little ones it will make me more alert when we go into the woods.

Wow, good story and no bias that I saw. A rarity.

except for the 'clip' thing, I thought it was probably one of the best articles I've read in a long time.

I wish I knew what kind of ammo he was shooting.

Doesn't happen often, but it does happen. A guy I work with had one charge on him last year. Emptied a mag through his G22 to take it down.

I gotta find a hood holster for my .44 mag!

While he's lucky he had the gun and the wherewithall to shoot a charging bear and make solid, effective hits, it really is too bad that he can't keep the hide or qualify for a record. I'm surprised he contacted OSP. I know that in Marion County where we have a few black bears and an increasing number of cougars there is a strong contingent of outdoorsmen who adhere to the shoot, shovel, and shut-up school of thought.
