I don't know anything about guns, but I have hunting friends who can help me learn.
Mossberg 500 is another fine pump shotgun, and has the option of multiple barrels for different types of rounds. I have a smooth bore for shot and small game, or rifled slugs, and a rifled barrel for sabot slugs, for bigger game like deer, elk or bears.
Awesome - quick learner!
Ya. Pretty sure I am going to rock the whole SHTF / off grid/ wilderness thing. Would a bigger guard type dog be a help at all?
If you intend to live off the wilds, guns, bow and arrow, crossbow, traps and snares, fishing, and farming, will be feeding you. It would be best if you could learn all you can about all of them.
Yes I am beginning to see your point lol.
Eat some cheeseburgers to put on another 10lbs....it kicks a bit.
Sorry ,,didn't try to make criminal ....I buy them at boom city Tulip , I don't care of the flavour of the rules , I'm 60+ and don't let kids play with them . I use them for cheap noise makers . For polars , we would have a modified shot gun to shoot wads , had 25' - 40 zone for hitting a charging bear. Buddy dropped one years ago in Resolute . I had skid marks left in my tighty whiteys. He was in better reach , and I was on the airframe deck working . Either way , thats bear poop , and it will change its appearance when the food it eats changes with the season . Bear bells (small high pitch ring =Opposite to a cow bell) will keep both of you aware of each other , you ring , bears grunt and can emit smells . Remember to mark you area & start small & increase it is area for a better training & acceptance . Keep your food in old deep freezers so the smell is contained . Burn garbage / blood / bones etc.
Cleanup the bears poop and make sure it's outside of your area markings . If it keeps on pooping in your area , then You know there will be a confrontation .
For the short time, use a bear bag for food or garbage. It is quite simple to do. Tie a rope between two tree way up high, then tie your food into the bag and throw the loose end over the horizontal rope. Then draw up your food, and tie it off. The bear will not be able to reach it.
And Washington State plans to reintroduce Grizzlies to the Cascades...
Feds Consider Grizzly Bear Reintroduction In Washington Cascades | KCTS 9 - Public Television
@Leeuhhh , with brown bear, small bells are often enough, and pepper spray for bears, will work with the few that remain, but grizzleys don't respond the same. Do you know how to tell the difrence by their scat (poop)?
I don't think we have many if any grizzly bears here. Maybe the poop is from a black bear?
Oh wow just saw about Grizzlies in the cascades. Interesting!
At least they're informing us about this one (bears). They pretended not to know anything about the wolves in the Teanaway but it was later discovered that the State had reintroduced them there and in other places.
Black bear scat will contain berries and twigs, while grizzly scat will contain small bells and may smell strongly of bear spray.....
No matter how many times you introduce them they won't remember the name...
Pretty sure that black bear scat....they woke up a bit early this year....
CLEARLY cuz we didn't pay Al Gore enough carbon tax to fix global warming...
grizzlies are much bigger than black bears, right? I'm going to need a lot of pee. Sigh.
When I searched for bear scat images, it did seem to match the black bear pics best. So I agree. Lol. I am making a bear to-do list with all this info, thanks!
Highly unlikely a griz or brown....
The key to pee....beer.
The best part of ownin' the land is that you can pee anywhere you please!
