REAL MEN carry a Mosin-Nagant, and shoot the tree next to the bear, knowing 
that with one shot, the tree
gives up, tips over, and crushes the bear.

Then, you use your Mosin pig-sticker to BBQ the sumbitch -- all
on $1.20 a round. And by the time you finish eating the bear, your hearing 
MAY have returned. (Hmmmm. Just like the .44 on that one....)



Spatior, ergo sum.

The students obviously made a
mistake by splitting up.  But I'm wondering if
single hikers should consider carrying bear
spray?  Any thoughts?
