Wisconsin bear attack!
 
Wife who can't load shotgun uses it to club bear attacking husband | Fox News

Think it's time to get the wife enrolled in hunter safety;) or at least teach her to shoot on your own. Lesson, guns are our friends, bears are not!

Do you think the bear didn't know the gun was unloaded when pointed at it? LOL, pointing an unloaded shotgun at the bear????

Do you hunt Hunterace?

Yes sir! I haven't recently since I had a child, but I'll always be a hunter, we named our son Hunter ;)

When I saw this, I initially thought this was a case of fumbling through panic which prevented her loading the gun, especially since the media like to make it more than it is but it looks like the husband also backed the view...at least she didn't just back-off, some would have done without thinking of using the unloaded gun as a weapon.

The thing that struck me as odd, maybe it shouldn't, is living in an area with dangerous predators, you'd think being prepared would just make common sense. I understand many people hate guns or are afraid of them, but just seems that for just basic knowledge you'd know how to use a weapon. Took lots of courage to do what she did though!

Yeah, that does seem odd, and I have to say that given stories of people being dragged of by mountain lions when riding their mountain bikes in more rural areas, I'd feel a whole sight more comfortable with a loaded weapon on me, out in some of those areas...even though I'm in the UK and we don't have guns, as such.

LOL, one of the more common names around here.


I have worked for the KY Dept of Fish and Wildlife for 27 years. Your 1st statement caught my attention. I coordinate the Hunter Ed program in the eastern 1/3 of KY....40 counties.

Absolutely Babs. Not only for your own self, but if you have kids I don't know how you can't be somewhat prepared. Obviously no one can be 100% prepared for every situation. And you also can't predict how you'll react. But I'll be damned if I'd be or live somewhere where I couldn't properly protect my loved ones. And from personal experience I'm much more lethal with a weapon vs a stick or club :D

That's awesome Storm! Hunter Ed is honestly something I think everyone should take. Even if you have zero intention of ever using a firearm. Just like I took a CPR class when my wife got pregnant. Never want to need that knowledge and use it, but glad I have it ;)
