    Long read, but worth it:

    This guy lives just outside of Soldotna.

    Friends,

    Have I got a story for you guys!
    King season is over, and since I had a day off before silvers start, I
    Thought I would go for a walk! This occurred at 11:16 am this morning
    (Sunday), just 2/10 of a mile from my house, ON OUR ROAD while walking
    My dogs (trying to get in shape for hunting season, ironically!) for the
    Record, this is in a residential area-not back in the woods, no
    Bow hunting, no stealth occurring....

    I heard a twig snap, and looked back...full on charge-a huge brownie,
    Ears back, head low and motorin' full speed! Came with zero warning; no
    Woof, no popping of the teeth, no standing up, nothing like what you
    Think or see on TV! It charged from less than 20 yards and was on me in
    about one-second! Totally surreal-I just started shooting in the general
    Direction, and praise God that my second shot (or was it my third?)
    Rolled him at 5 feet and he skidded to a stop 10 feet BEYOND where I was
    Shooting from-I actually sidestepped him and fell over backwards on the
    Last shot, and his momentum carried him to a stop past where I fired my
    First shot!

    It was a prehistoric old boar-no teeth, no fat-weighed between 900-1000
    Lbs and took five men to DRAG it onto a tilt-bed trailer! Big bear-its
    Paw measured out at about a 9 1/2 footer!

    Never-ever-thought "it" would happen to me! It's always some other smuck, Right?

    Well, no bull-I am still high on adrenaline, with my gut in a Knot.

    Feels like I did 10000 crunches without stopping! Almost puked for
    An hour after, had the burps and couldn't even stand up as the troopers
    Conducted their investigation! Totally wiped me out-cant even put that
    feeling into words, by far the most emotion I have ever felt at once!

    Jeez that's nuts.

    I guess location aids in understanding why someone was packing that gun. Still though.

    That's one reason I picked up the Alaskan 454. It is somewhat concealable but is capable of handling anything up here and is really agile. Also totally safe if dropped on hammer.

    Sorry about that. Being a firearms thread didn't crosss mind.

    This animal wouldn't have made it through the winter. Old, no teeth, no fat, and that's the reason he charged a human. He had dinner plans. Usually browns don't eat people. Blacks are more likely to attack a human for food.

    Sadly a Jr high boy was killed and partially eaten by a black bear while on a cross country race this spring. It happend not to far from Anchorage .

    No worries man. It's probably not in the rules but we're not all hunters and dead bears especially bum me out.

    I can appreciate that. Bears are awesome.

    About a month or two ago a little girl here in Florida reached into her grandmothers purse to get some candy and grabbed granny’s .22 instead. Shot herself.

    I think Bear is the only animal I would ever struggle to hunt simply because I'd be too bummed out if I was successful. Lions (mountain and African), wolves (even though I have owned two Akitas and want a Malamute), and other predators though? Fuck 'em... if I had a good guide and a decent crew I'd shoot those fuckers in a heartbeat. Bears though.....

    It's like Steve Rinella said in an episode where he goes Grizzly hunting in AK "I want that big massive boar Grizzly with the curled in feet and everything but I just know I'll never see it.. which means I get to spend all my grizzly hunts watching bears which is awesome"

    I'm with you on that; I don't mind bears though I do prepare for them here in California. Opportunistic carnivores though? Fuck them, no sympathy.

    Not an ND but eye opening none the less. Was on a range in the army, finished my mag and the bolt locked to the rear. I waited for everyone else to finish up, and to hear the command to go check our targets. As soon as we got the command I started walking towards my target. Before I got there I started thinking, my bolt locked to the rear so the chamber must be empty but I didn't actually visually inspect the chamber. I walked back, peeked inside and low and behold there was a live round in that mother fucker.
