Another hunting tip; I now carry a few pairs of cow pregnancy testing gloves. They are shoulder length, not just goves. I also pack a few rubber bands to hold them up. When gutting big game, no need to get bloody above regular glove. I get mine at a ranch store or vet supply. And they are cheap. Another reason why I use a wrist thong, with or without gloves, blood is still slippery.

Many elk hunters are using this method, but I am still old school, because I like the heart, liver and kidneys, plus the tongue.

Pappy,
Obviously the apple does not fall far from the tree,your daughter has your wife's good looks!!!

I too use a Diamond Double D guide rig for my Ruger Alaskan 44.

I cannot imagine anyone hunting in bear country w/o a heavy piece and an industrial size can of spray.

I was surprised to hear that the spray had no effect.

Wayne--

Considering how some people don't react in the "preferred" way to pepper spray, it is not surprising that a bear that has committed to an attack might not register the pain until it is too late for the person who sprays it.

Years ago, I worked on an inter-agency panel looking at "nonlethal" "less than lethal" "less lethal" alternatives for law enforcement officers. That was when officers still carried .38 Special revolvers. Even in those days, we recognized that a lot of factors enter into the effectiveness of whatever such options might be used by law enforcement. There were not and still are not 100% solutions to stop or deter all of the threats all of the time.

Deadly force decisions are the last resort, but going to that does not always stop an animal or a human in time to prevent harm to the person involved.

Larry

P.S.: If I can locate it, I will post a "scary" picture to share.

Found it...

Camping in the Sierras, dusk, and a black bear charging full bore downhill…


But...it made a sudden turn into the rocks, fished out a ground squirrel, gulped it down, then turned and continued on its way.

Bears nearest the park are known individually by the rangers, and apparently have been conditioned to avoid them and "maybe" other humans.

Larry,
Yep,you are right on that. There are many factors to consider when dealing with charging animals/humans.

Looks like a pretty nice sized bear there!!! Good thing that it's attention span was diverted to the squirrel.

Attention span with wild game seems to be short. Up in Maine,if a moose get aggressive,just hide behind a tree and it pretty much will go on it's way...………..most of the time.

Speaking of sprays,the first time I used the new product MACE in the late 60s,it had no effect on the person. So much for advertisements!!!!
