    Almost nailed a black bear last night ...

    With the Magnum ...

    It was about 8:30PM, we were headed back home from a quick road trip to NC and had just got off 81 at Winchester VA and traveling east on route 7. It burst out of the wooded median about 30-40 yards away, galloping across the two lanes of roadway, with me hitting the brakes hard to avoid bearicide.

    Not sure about the overall size, but it looked to have a bit more mass than our 110 lb mixed breed dog, so it could have been in the 120-150lb range.

    Glad both you and it lost nothing more than some tire rubber (although someone may have gained a few gray hairs )...stay safe!

    Sounds like you 'bearly' made it, but glad you're all safe.

    Isn't it amazing how that kind of experience makes everyone wide-awake...even in the middle of the night?

    Stay armed...stay alert...stay safe!

    Be glad you didnt hit it.

    I've worked 3 bear/car wrecks and the damage on any vehicle wasnt less than 6000 bucks.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
