Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

The Cult of Gun Control spreads the very false narrative that Americans almost never, ever use firearms for self-defense. This hunter, and maybe the grizzly, would dispute such claims

There are some things in life that you just don’t want to experience. I’d prefer not to get severe burns over most of my body, for example. Other examples include sticking my head inside an animal trap, using a home circumcision kit, a long period of lovemaking with Lena Dunham, and being charged by a grizzly with an attitude problem.

One Montana hunter, however, can check that last one off his bucket list.

An elk hunter shot a charging grizzly bear Tuesday morning near the Sun River Canyon west of Augusta on the Rocky Mountain Front.

The encounter took place mid-morning, according to a press release from Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks.

The Great Falls-area hunter, whose name has not been released, apparently surprised the grizzly at the head of Home Gulch, about three miles south of the Sun River Canyon Road, wardens said.

The hunter told wardens he fired a warning shot in the air, but the bear charged him anyway. The hunter shot at the bear, and said he thought he hit it three times. The bear turned and ran, and the hunter left the area and then notified FWP.

An FWP bear management specialist soon flew over the area, but could not see any sign of the bear. FWP game wardens are now on the ground trying to locate the bear.

  1. I was attacked by a black bear, looking for food. I was ” Backpacking,” with 3 boys 12 & under. I was unarmed. I pounded my walking stick on a tree to scare her. I challenged the bear by ” Growling ,” at her. She chattered her teeth back at me. She went on her way when she couldn’t find more food. She came back when we started to cook.
