I really needed my gun this weekend

There I was - the fish were biting, the perfect fishing stream - the stuff legends are made of - and "Oh Shit !" there are bear shits, bear tracks, and bear sleeping dens all around me.

Now if I had been by myself I probably would have just took the chance, but my wife was with me and her small "Ankle Biter" of a dog and I knew it would be trouble if we aroused 1 of the small Brown Bears that frequent the area.

As it was, I left with out wetting my flies

4. I totally approve of your having a gun

 

In fact, I'd say going into that kind of environment without one might be foolish.

6. wouldn't it have been better to have bear pepper spray than a gun?

 

something that would have scared away the bears and allowed both of you to live?
