I fought a guy that was twisted up on meth. He didn't have any teeth but had somehow chewed his toenails off. I'll take the bear any day!

I do that for a living but not nearly as exciting as a sow bear in White County that didn't like the way I had talked to her cub. I tote a weapon with me whenever in the mountains cause it can happen and I plan to at least put some rounds down range before the hateful wretch bites me through the back of the neck and kills me.

For fun I have spent more days than most among Alaska bears and a North Georgia Sow is the by far the closest I have come to buying the farm.

I thought I was about to have to do some wrastlin' tonight on Chattahoochee WMA. I met JBoggs up there this evening at the bridge at Martin Branch. We caught up a while, then he went off to look for porkers. I went off my way to hike up the road to look around. There appeared to be a man camping at the bridge, but no vehicle was there. When I got back, he and all of his stuff was still there. He came up to me and asked for a ride to Helen, and I apologized and politely declined. He began begging me for a ride, and trying to argue with me. I again politely said no and apologized. I told him it was only a thirty minute walk to Helen, and he had two and a half hours to get there before sunset. He then got an attitude and used some very, very unfriendly explatives, so I decided it was time for me to go. Got in the car and backed out, and he was screaming at me at the top of his lungs. He screamed at me until I drove far enough away that I could no longer hear him.

This is yet another very valid reason to carry a side arm.

I got down the road and started fishing, and twenty five minutes later, here he comes down the road. As he passed by me again, he decided to use some more "friendly adjectives", and I just replied "fair enough", and kept on fishing. Not often do I feel the need to carry my .40 while fishing, but today was one of those days. I'm glad I did.

If you know much about Martin Branch and pay attention, you'll start learning some things about the people that hang at the bridge. You'll find condoms, beer cans, liquor bottles, zig zag wrappers, and last year my dad found a meth/crack pipe in a pill bottle stuffed into a stump right there at the bridge. Today an old white Nissan truck passed me just after I left the bridge, and it wreaked of weed smoke. Sometimes it is wise to carry a side arm for the two legged critters too.

I'm sorry, didn't mean to be rude to you. I just needed to get to Helen before the likker store closed.

I carry whether I "feel the need to" or not. Same as wearing a seatbelt. Some of my most bizarre and threatening encounters have happened in very nice "safe" parts of town. If I have to go somewhere I feel the need to, I carry a bigger gun, a second gun, and get in and out ASAP if i don't have the option of avoiding it.

Yall must be hanging out in the wrong woods. I've never met anyone in the field who made me wish I was carrying a gun. I have had a couple of pretty intense, close up encounters with bears when I wasnt sure of their intentions, and didnt have a gun, but I dont consider myself unarmed as long as I have my knife on me. I've had it out a couple of times when things got tense. Like someone else said, situational awareness is the most important defence you have. My spider senses are always tingling. In the woods or in town.

Ripple, if you piddle around Chattahoochee long enough, you'll start to become acquainted with Helen's finest. That isn't necessarily a badge of honor!!

Right now is the only time in history people dont feel they need to carry a weapon on them at all times. Call me old fashioned.

I know some of the places he hunts. The only people he's likely to run into have probably been dead for years and the FBI has a missing persons file on them.

Haha! The way the bears and yotes are up here, I'll bet he only finds bits and pieces!
