Nothing but a big caliber for me if hiking in the Montana wilderness.

EDIT: I happened to be there in W. Yellowstone on vacation when the ambulances were arriving to aid the Yellowstone hiker that had been mauled and killed. Sad story and they were not very far from the road (aka not too deep in the woods at the time).

Again sad story.... bottom line is that I carry for a reason!

Talked with 2 employees of a local pawn/gun store. One of them had his arm in a sling. Turns out they spotted a black bear in the woods across from the store. There were people near that hadn't spotted the bear. Boys went out with a shotgun and a .45ACP. Said the .45 held 20 rounds. Should have asked what model. Probably after market mag.
Anyway, just as they are telling the bystanders about the bear, it charges. Shotgun boy gets off 2 shots. Mr. 45 starts spraying. Bear knocks down shotgun boy. Mr .45 keeps shooting. Wounds shotgun boy in the shoulder and under arm area. I'm assuming just fragments. Bear runs off. Soldotna cops show up and find blood but unable to locate the bear. It was raining, but I know of plenty of incidents where local cops and Troopers failed to locate an animal with a blood trail a blind guy could have followed. Don't know how many rounds connected, but certainly some did. I've never heard of anyone getting off that many rounds on a charging bear. Very odd for one to charge with that many people around too. Mr .45 was looking real sheepish as Shotgun boy related the story to me. Obviously felt bad about shooting his buddy.

This may sound a bit comical, but if he had carried a 50AE instead of 45, his buddy might not up be and walking. Some smart bear: it went for the one with the most deadly powered gun first, and probably live because of that decision.

Update on the injured bear shooter. He was out of his sling yesterday. I asked him if he was hit by fragments. Nope. Entire bullets. One in the shoulder, still in there. The other went down along the outside of his ribcage. The doctors removed that one.

Ha! Is this proof that even a couple of 45 can't even put a man down?

Good thing, they didn't.

Getting a lot less sunlight up there, right?

smokeross, I had to read that story a couple of times. It is amazing. This should be on an episode of "When Animals Attack". I guess shotgun boy was glad he was not eaten, but sad he was shot. I would have loved to see that on film. Needless to say, I can only imagine both guys were scared out of their minds.

Soldotna bear attack

Interesting story. So interesting in fact I tried to find out more but couldn't. So I emailed my brother in law who lives in Soldotna. He said he had heard the story before but the setting was Montana. He did send a link to a recent bear incident which involved a grizzly bear and a Caribou head being left out.

Bears are more likely to be surprised by their unexpected presence. On the other hand, bears can tell exactly where rural Alaskans are, and rural Alaskans can never surprise a bear....

Kinda make sense... Tough to get warm water when you're living alone out in the cold territory.

I'd keep this in mind when trolling the woods.

I'm not from Alaska, but this is an idiotic post.

Common sense would agree with you.

The story hasn't been in the news yet. Tell him to go talk to the young fellow behind the counter at Alaska Trading and Loan. Or ask the Soldotna cops. Happened just a few weeks ago. I've talked to the lad several times.

I agree.

It was written by an idiot, quite awhile ago, more than 2 months.

The funny thing is that you're just getting to it now... That means you're 2 months BEHIND an idiot.

He smelled so pretty, he got eaten by wolverines.

Four deaths by Griz this year in greater yellowstone area.

If you are being charged by a bear with a high load Glock 20, How would you shoot at it? Straight at the skull or a little lower, a little higher maybe? (I'm not saying I wouldn't like more power, but this is my mountain carry)

Gun in right hand, shooting over left shoulder. Spraying and praying as I ran like hell.

Sounds like a receipe for missing the Griz on every shot, and then he'd run you down anyway and promptly begin having lunch ...

With a properly loaded 15+1 G20 (that means with a hot-n-fast, deep-penetrating projectile), it makes more sense to stand your ground and concentrate as much aimed fire on a vital area as time permits, even if its only a few seconds. If nothing else, it hopefully dissuades or deters the bear from continuing its attack through immediate pain, sound and blast ...

Since you're never going to out run Mr. Griz - even while emitting girly-screams - why try? Sure, avoid any confrontation with a bruin, if possible ...

But the contingency of using it is why you'd pack a G20 into bear country in the first place, not just to carry its extra weight while you run away.
