  • Deer Takes Down Hunter

    It's getting harder out there every day folks.



    ALBION, Ind. -- A northeastern Indiana hunter has died after struggling with a buck he had just shot.

    The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says 62-year-old Paul Smith of Fort Wayne died Monday during a deer reduction hunt at Chain O'Lakes State Park about 20 miles northwest of the city. It says the Noble County coroner says the death was due to a lacerated liver, possibly suffered during the struggle. ...Full Story

    Yeah, that's why I always carry a sidearm. Why wrestle with a live wild animal?

          Those bows are freakin' crazy now a days

          One of my best friends is the 'bow guy' at our local outfitters and my dads best friend is a big bow hunter. He took down a bear with a bow. Way to crazy for me. hahaha

            It's great, they are so accurate, I can robin hood arrows WAY too easily, which is bad since arrows are expensive.

              I bow hunt too, and wouldn't hesitate to bear hunt....as long as it was a black bear and I had a pistol at my side.

              There's no way you could get me to hunt a grizzly with a bow, or anything else. There was a guy in Idaho who was mauled by a grizzly after he emptied his .45 into it. F&G tracked and killed the animal then did an autopsy. They discovered a bunch of bruises on the chest of the bear, but none of the bullets had penetrated his chest cavity. The only pistol I would feel safe with if I'm shooting at a grizzly is a .44 magnum, at the very least. Toting a .44 magnum on an archery hunt would get pretty tiring after a short while.

                  That guy had a screw loose. What's really unfortunate is that not only did his lack of real understanding of the bears cost him his life, it cost a girl's life too.

                  Grizzlies are ferocious predators. It only takes one hungry or 'peeved' grizzly to end your world in about 4 seconds. A grizzly charging at 45 mph has got to be terrifying.

                    a .45 didn't penetrate the chest cavity?

                    There's freaking SuperGrizzlies now? I feel for that guy.

                    A smaller, lighter round....357sig or 40 s&w may have had a better chance of penetration. Therein lies the rub, however. Sure, I'd probably get more rounds through, but I wouldn't get the stoppage I needed for a wild animal on full adrenaline rush.

                    I'll file this story in the back of my mind for a later day. I hope that when I need to recall it, I remember to try to destroy the CNS. Aim small, miss small though. Doubled-edged sword.

                        It was a fully grown mature male. If I encountered a fully grown mature male, I 'might' feel as though I have a chance with a .357, but I would still 'prefer' a .44 magnum.

                          If we're talking about what we'd prefer if being attacked
                          I'd prefer sharps .50, or maybe a BAR

                            Yeah, a .50 would be nice, but you won't see me totin' one of those around at 8000 feet.
