I heard today that 1/3 of all bear attacks are black bear attacks, so I looked it up. This is why I carry a handgun whenever I'm in the woods. Don't get me wrong though, I still like bear hunting, other hunting and general woodsmanship....I just don't want to be a statistic on Wiki for a bear, wolf or cougar attack. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fatal_bear_attacks_in_North_America_by_decade Wanna kill these ads?
