This summer I started up at the Arctic Ocean in Alaska and hiked south over the Brooks Range. Then I paddled down a series of rivers including the Yukon, before doing a week-long portage to the Kuskokwim River. From there I paddled to Pacific tidewater.
Needless to say I saw lots of...
Not a fun way to be awakened in the middle of the night. Wasn't there a thread not long ago about how Black bears never attack humans?
So, I see that the Gerber Bear Grylls line gets a lot of flak. That's totally fair in most cases.'
The ultimate knife is crap, what with it's tang and cheap steel and lousy sheath. But what about the ultimate pro edition? That's full tang, a nicer steel, an updated sheath (even if...
I've been fooling around with two things a lot lately, and those are my new work sharp KTS and my Gerber parang.
Now, I know the Bear Grylls line of merchandise doesn't get much love, but even it has a few goodies. This parang has been working pretty well for me in yard work (i.e...
Yesterday, while mowing, I noticed that the raised Strawberry bed I planted last year was finally producing a few red berries. There were lots of green berries and about half a dozen red berries. I also noticed that my “hen of the woods” mushroom that grows in the crotch of my maple tree every...
I've been looking into buying myself a nice Gerber folder for outdoor use - it would be used during hikes or hunting trips, or possibly mock survival scenarios. I've whittled down the list to two knives (actually three...): the Gerber Bear Grylls folding sheath knife (Amazon...
I've yet to find a good, solid, reliable .357 revolver within my price range of no more than $350. In our local secondhand news in which people commonly overprice guns and ammo to oblivion, there's an Old model Charter Arms 3 inch Bulldog in .44 special for $300 bucks. I have done some research...
(9mm, +p, or +p+) is it good enough to take down a bear? Not counting a head shot, but body shots? Or would it simply serve to enrage the bear further. If not a 9mm what would be better for a bear attack, .357, or .45?
Had kind of a fun day yesterday.
So I planned to hike to a remote lake, which is very difficult to find and catch some grayling, if they were even still in the lake.
On the way in, saw a smaller bear scraping a dead tree trunk for goodies inside. I whistled a couple times, and thought he was...

If I could carry 8 rifles and 1000 rounds per rifle plus supplies for a year in a hummer followed by a gas truck, there would be no question... BUT the question is how much trouble would I have with a bear vs. 22lr and let’s say it’s a tricked and tuned 10/22 and I can hit what I aim at. What...
how worried are you about running into one? worried enough that if you did not have a gun with you, you would spend 40 bucks on bear pepper spray?
what if you have alot of food with you?
what if you are in a park where idiots feed some animals, and a bear might be more than willing to walk...
