I just want to clear up some confusion concerning my avatar. Someone has already PM'd me wanting the details of my hunt. When it comes to hunting my experience is stalking a nice cut of steak in the supermarket. If I was to hunt, it would not be something that was also interested in hunting me. I am thinking more along the lines of a rabbet or something. They are not dangerous, are they?
No, the fella below with the bear is one of my grandfathers (he is the one with the gun). This photo was taken in Alaska during the war (WWII) when they homesteaded there (out in the middle of nowhere). According to my father they were not hunts, but more like encounters. This was not the only one.
Sorry for any misunderstanding, but I was flattered that anyone thought me that heroic.
