re: Dad defends family from bear with telescope, You OK Roger


I remember a story of some hunter that got attacked by a bear, I believe it was a grizzly too, and somehow couldn't get to his firearm but had a knife on him. Somehow during the altercation he called in all of the good luck stored for his life and landed a knife blow to the neck partially severing the vertebrae. The bear wasn't out yet, though. After being stabbed it retreated, with the knife still lodged in its neck, and then proceeded to charge the hunter again. At this point a combination of divine providence and balls big enough to knock down buildings came into play and the hunter just threw a haymaker with everything he had and actually hit the charging grizzly right in the face with enough force (thanks, in part, to the speed of the charge and weight of the animal...praise Newton...) to fully sever the partially severed vertebrae in the bear's neck and dropped the monster like a rock.

Dude was beat and torn to shit, but has what must be one of the most badass stories in human history to pass down to the grandkids. Bastard will be 80 years old and able to amaze his grandkids by telling them about the time he punched a fricking grizzly to death.

Most people aren't armed 24/7, and all of Ak is bear country. It's early in the year, most of us aren't packing yet for bears.

Usually mid may before you have to worry about them in the area this guy was in.

See all you really need to survive in this world is a damn good knife and balls of steel.

According to Gene Moe, correct

LINK

quote:

Gene Moe snapped his head around at the ferociously loud and deep bawling roar of a close and angry bear. At first glimpse, he knew he was in for the fight of his life. This was no trotting charge of a bluffing bear. Both front paws reached forward together in each leap of a galloping bear going in for the kill. Gene made one instinctive step toward his rifle, just
5 feet away, and then recognized the futility of dropping an inferior weapon to grab a superior one he'd never have time to shoot. The knife he had been using to skin a Sitka blacktail deer was still in his hand, so he thrust it forward to meet the raging bear's wide-open mouth, hoping to shove it down her throat. He was keenly aware that he could lose a hand, or more, but no better defense presented itself.


He was in his 70's.

Inuit Eskimo and his shite knife.

quote:

Davis: The Inuit didn’t fear the cold; they took advantage of it. During the 1950s the Canadian government forced the Inuit into settlements. A family from Arctic Bay told me this fantastic story of their grandfather who refused to go. The family, fearful for his life, took away all of his tools and all of his implements, thinking that would force him into the settlement. But instead, he just slipped out of an igloo on a cold Arctic night, pulled down his caribou and sealskin trousers, and defecated into his hand. As the feces began to freeze, he shaped it into the form of an implement. And when the blade started to take shape, he put a spray of saliva along the leading edge to sharpen it. That’s when what they call the “ shite knife” took form. He used it to butcher a dog. Skinned the dog with it. Improvised a sled with the dog’s rib cage, and then, using the skin, he harnessed up an adjacent living dog. He put the shite knife in his belt and disappeared into the night.


TL:DR
Inuit goes into the wilderness, makes a knife with his own feces, kills a dog with it, makes a sled from that dog and uses another dog to pull the sled. Survives. Outdoor level: 99
