One of the guys that works at the same company as I do runs bear with dogs. I didn't get a bear tag so I told him where I ran across that bear. He took a 716 pound bruin about a half mile from where I had my encounter!

Next time you go.... just take a slow friend. No side arm needed. Or.... just take a .22 pistol and when the bear attacks, shoot your buddy in the leg. :good:

Saw on MSNBC video a report of a guy in Washington State who bagged a 570lbs black bear...saying it may not break a state record, but it's the biggest DFG has seen in a very long time (alive or dead) + he shot it with a shotgun during deer season from 45 yds away. Let me know when you get those pics and if he scored that bruiser!

He ran the bear for another hunter but I'll ask him if he got a pic of it.

I finally ran into the guy that shot the bear and got the first hand story of what really happened. He actually shot the 716 lb bear himself on a guided hunt in Alaska, the bear he ran for another hunter and took in long barn was only 358 lbs. :tease:

Lol, Shooter John, I got one for you.Yosemite, we hear squealing like crazy. I tell my ex, pack the car now. Two minutes later the little baby bear being harrassed by people throwing stuff shows up in my camp. Car door is wide open. He found his safe cave.My 100 lb australian sheppard looks at me, "what is this #@$&?"He goes and growls but the bear ain't moving. I go to the other side of the car and open the door. My dog hops up to help out. The baby bear gets out grudingly. Now my ex can make a move; the car is packed and we are out of there. On the way out my dog jumps in the front seat, comes over and grabs my arm and growls. Message received. All my fault.
