Last night around 0200 the cow dog started raise'in a ruckus--- hes young, but he knows the sounds around here at night. Take'in his word for it I figured something was up, so I pulled on what I had of my Skips outfit--- my boots--- and grabbed the old "97" Winchester (pic bottom shotgun) loaded with buck and a light and headed out into the dark.

 

I made it to the old stallions pen to make sure he was O.K.. He was stomp'in around and look'in over to the west field. Then I heard it--- sounds from the last stack of cow hay. I figured it was those damn elk get'in into things since they haven't left for the winter yet.

 

I'll fix them I thought. I sneaked around the north side of the stack and stepped out to scare the crap outta them but that plan didn't come together. The elk were black and had pointy teeth. Yep--- 3 black bears--- sow and two cubs. Things got tense real fast at 20 feet. The bright light had them confused--- the sow jumped out of the hay a couple yards and the big cubs ran over behind her. She was gonna play tuff as I shouldered the shotgun. She woofed once and banged the ground two times with both front paws, but didn't want to commit wjth the bright light in her eyes.

 

I fired a warn'in shot over her head, and she did commit--- she committed to get'in the he!! outta there.

 

It seemed like 20 minutes--- but it was really probably 20 seconds.

 

After I chilled out for a few--- all I could think of was--- Damn--- I had that stacked.

 

P.S.--- sorry, no bear pictures--- I wouldn't have though about a camera then anyway.lol.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

About those home wreckers...I wish they had the camera this time and thankfully you made it back safely.  At least you didn't have to change your under pants.

 

"I pulled on what I had of my Skips outfit..."

 

 

Now, that's a great line, Cat!  I'd like to sit around the campfire with you sometime over a milk shake or two.

 

Better get to stackin'.

The bears here are on their full feed fall mode before they take their winter nap. Don't know what they were after in the stack--- if they come back--- I have a few shells loaded with rock salt that I can explain the rules here on the outfit with.

 

Cant be out run'in around in the middle of the night these days--- I need all the beauty sleep I can get. :cowboy:

Maybe so Rick---

 

Years ago Miss K had this wolf cross (pic) I'd let roam the place at night and he pretty much kept critters away from the pens and house. At 140 lbs, I'll have to give it to him--- he was flat a$$ tuff. He killed quite a few coyotes in his time. He made whats his names little cur dogs look like sissys.

Funny you should mention that story as a guy that lived up the end of a road against a mountain had a dog just like you described, Pitbull's and all the other tough dogs of the day stayed away from that part of the mountain, he ripped up many of the tough ones.
