Back to the 44Mag

Bears are out again, and so is the dog and I. Seems the 44 has grown heavier during the winter, so I dug out my custom Shoulder Belt that not only holds my pants up, but hangs on some other stuff I like to tote with me in the wilderness.

10 more days and Spring Bear season starts. I didn't see a single bear all last year, so I'm due.

Good luck with those bears. No bears in IL and that makes me happy.

We do have a billion freaking white tail deer that love to jump in front of cars.

For the most part they are very timid. Most people only see the ass end of a bear. I did have one stand on its hind legs and look at me for about 30 seconds about 25 feet from me. I was armed and in my vehicle so no worries. He/she displayed no aggression, just curiosity. This was 5 days before the fall season began. Lucky bear.

Another interesting time was one looking inside thru my screen slider door. Luckily the dog let me know. It was a problem bear, that I had to fire some rounds to get it going on its way. Later the game warden had to trap it and relocate the young food conditioned animal.

Exciting, but one needs to be aware.

The Only Timid Bears I have ever seen were the Chicago Bears, Timid as hell.
