This is about 20 minutes from my home , we are over run by bears, I will see if I can post up a picture of the one in my back yard, We have sports air horns allover our house,front door back door in the garage,on the deck, but the shed,

I also have my 12 gauge with slugs near the door in case.

A terrible way for that young boy to have to go image the terror he must have had to endure. I hope he went quick

Happened near my girls mothers house. I didn't read the story, she told me about it the day it happened. She told me guy got killed and his son was with him and saw it.

that is a terrible way to go. 92% of all black bear attacks are predatory in nature, and the attacks are more likely to be from a boar, than a sou protecting her cubs. blackies are also far more aggressive than browns.

Proof that is you go hiking in bear country, you should always make sure at least one member of you party is slower than you.

Ok..inappropriate but how many were thinking it?

That's 92% of the fatalities that were predatory in nature were done by males. Overall 88% of bear attack fatalities are predatory. There are lots of attacks that aren't predatory (ie. attacking hiker for their lunch).

I was getting my tree stands ready this weekend and had a 10 min. Starring contest with one. I always have my 870 with me. Luckily I didn't need it.
