I'm thinking Mosin M38 for bear repellent on my next camping trip. That'll get the job done.
I'm with ya Dogman. If I'm in the woods, I'm carrying my .44 mag (and I'm only in black bear country). I read that story earlier, and I just watched Prophecy-the giant, mutated bear movie from 1979-last Sunday. Weird. I still want to camp in Montana someday, and I will.
+1 ktcm, in black bear country here too. I carry a Super Blackhawk 7" .44Mag in a Kodiak chest holster. Got trailed by a full grown Mountian lion a few years ago, taught me a lesson.
Sounds like a Grizz attack. They are just plain grumpy
