  • Grizzly mauling near Yellowstone kills backcountry guide.

    A Montana backcountry guide has died after he was mauled by a large grizzly bear that was probably defending a nearby moose carcass just outside Yellowstone National Park, officials said Monday.

    He was fishing by himself in God's Country. I have spent a lot of time in grizzly country by myself, and am going again this year. There is a special fear when you walk into a circle in the willows with a chewed moose in the center of it, bear tracks and scat everywhere. I've backed away and lived. This dude had a bad day. I've done it and I'll do it again. Life just isn't safe if you enjoy the great good land.

      I guess some of us are born without survival instincts.

        Have you ever been outside of your basement? Basement furnaces explode occasionally. You are not 100% safe curled in a fetal position in you basement. You live a sad existence. I'll be catching dollies and dogs in Alaska by mid-July. Last year on the way to Bellingham while making the 3000 mile drive I stopped at a pull-off in Montana. While I was stretching, walking my lab, I looked up the mountainside and observed a small bear cub on a trail paralleling the busy highway. I didn't see mom and couldn't tell if it was a brown black bear cub or a grizzly. +P and I got back in the truck and continued on. Just another day in an enjoyable life.

          Have you looked into bungee jumping?
          It doesn't score well in a risk/reward analysis.

            Bungee Jumping is the sport of leaping off tall structures while connected to a thick rubber band. There is not only the thrill of the free-fall but the the jumper flies upwards as cord rebounds. Maybe this is not an extreme sport as the skill is down to the knowledge of the commercial operator setting up the equipment correctly and for most who participate it is just a one-off thrill.

              Nope. I ride motorcycles, fish in bear inhabitated waters, I've rappelled down cliffs above the Arctic Circle to band peregrine falcons for the Canadian Wildlife Service, but no bungee jumping. Drive 3000 miles to enjoy being surrounded by wilderness, yes. No paying someone to help me bungee jump. I don't jump out of perfectly good airplanes either. I'm not stupid enough to vote for Joe Biden, that's mega stupid and reckless. Not to mention horrible for the USA.

                Jack O'Connor used to worry about hunting sheep because their habitat was in grizzly country.
                And he had an armed guide and his .270 for protection.
                What a wuss:-))

                  Real people consider the possible problems that they face in enjoying their lives. The term situational awareness describes it. Men make decisions and live with the consequences.
