    Armed, or unarmed, I could never standby and allow anything or anyone close to me be injured. Whatever it takes----------------------.

    .......empty two .45 mags into said bear, run upstairs & grab loaded .450 Marlin, run back downstairs and finish the job right!

    I live WAY back in the sticks on a farm and had a bear chasing my horse one summer. I called the DNR Police and told them of my problem and they just blew me off. I then at my 30.06 by the door and a month later there is was chasing her again. It was actually trying to swipe at her while they were running.

    I grabbed the 30.06 and shot the bear. I then immediately called the DNR and they were at my house within 20 minutes ( on Mother Day morning) they were NOT Happy that I shot one of thier precious bears. They questioned me four different times , they questioned my wife twice while I was NOT at home.

    I asked why they were busting my balls and they said they didn't think it was chasing my horse and they didn't think I could hit the running bear at 264 yrds. ( yes, they even measured it)
    I asked them if they checked their complaint logs and noticed i called them about this bear chasing my horse in the past. I also asked them if they ever wondered why in the world I would call and tell them I shot this bear if I shot it illegally.
    They did not like the fact that their bear was dead and treated me as if i was guilty of shooting the bear just for fun and were less than hospitable that is for sure. That is when I decided to exercise my rights and told them to correspond with my lawyer and four interviews were plenty. there is plenty more to this story but this is the jist of it.

    Well, it ended up i was not charged. they could not prove i shot the bear just for sport ( which I didn't) But the moral of the story is this. If you are going to shoot a bear you have two choices. You can do the right thing and report it to the proper authorities and then get prepared be interrogated repeatedly and to prove you are innocent. Or, you could exercise the three S's. which, is what I was advised to do by many others after this incident. ( Shoot , Shovel, and Shut up)

    Wow I'm sorry to hear that. I would have done that same thing though. I would practice SES (shoot, eat, shut up)

    Wouldn't you do the same for this face

    What a great looking dog!

    Thanks! She knows it to. She's half timber wolf and half siberian I'm sure she would give a black bear a run for it's money, I've seen her when she's cornered, one of the most friendly dogs you will ever meet but when she's cornered she can can do some serious damage trust me....There are a few good storied to back that up too.

    two years ago she ripped the throat out of a coyote prowling in our backyard. I know it doesn't compare to a bear but the way she did it with a pounce, flip, bite, and rip, was one of the most amazing and primal things I've ever seen. She loves people but like a wolf she has a nasty primal instinct. She came over to us on the porch and dropped a chunk of it's throat at my feet and sat down and started wagging her tail "I did good right?" ...I went out and the coyote was flopping around on it's side you could literally hear it trying to breath from the hole in it's throat. I felt bad for it, I finished it off and buried it. I've never been able to hunt coyote they remind me to much of my dog.

    adkjoe,

    Your dog is beautiful and I'm sure with her bloodlines she is a pretty tough cookie. But I think I have the ultimate killer dog. Just her look alone is will scare any other predator. She is 55lbs of total butt whoopin' ,,,,,, lol.

    I've never owned a dog, but I love them. As a kid I wanted one. Remember Rudy from the Cosby show? That's how I was with my Mom, lol. I still want to get a dog, but I still live with my parents (don't have the cash for my own place yet.) I'm not ashamed to say that I still ball like a baby when Travis has to put down Old Yeller. If I ever get a dog, nothing better try to hurt it when I'm around. Also, if I lived in bear country (or the more likely scenario for me would be Gator territory) I would be carrying a rifle at all times while outside.
