    Using an Outhouse in Bear Country

    Are you prepared to defend yourself?

    This guy was not, and survived.

    Something else to consider while at hunting camp.

    Anything that disturbs me while I'm making a dookey is gonna die. If it's edible then it's also going home with me.

    "A Canadian man who survived an attack by a black bear while he was sitting in an outhouse says he'll close the door from now on." (emphasis added).

    That's just too much nature....

    Yeah I figured that would be sufficient but what about in the way of semi-autos? I know a 10mm is pretty decent and I have a .357sig that I think could do the job but not really sure. Ive been told the .45auto is not all too effective with bears as it doesnt have enough penetration, not too sure on that one

    This is common in the Arctic as polar bears can smell defecation for miles and it is very dangerous to not be armed up there. They are drawn to the smell as they know there will be something or someone to eat there.

    This information does not come from National Geographic or even Outdoor Life magazine. It comes from the British TV show "Top Gear". They had to receive instruction on survival for a challenge in the Arctic. The expert on Arctic survival told them this. Never know where you can get a survival tip, eh?

    There are just too many fine choices, with an article like this, to make comments that might get me in trouble.
