Cool story.

My uncle took out a black bear with a knife. He doesn't need to pay for beers at the local pub anymore.

Man armed with knife kills hungry bear


Haha! Awesome story! If he is a blood relative, you surely have the warrior juice running through your veins!

There was a news report on a guy that a Grizzley came out of nowhere in Turnigain Pass many years back. Attacked so quick his .306 was knock out of his hand, as he was been ripped apart be pulled out his .22 pistol and in the one place under their head got him with one shot and dropped him. Their skulls a so thick penatration of a full round 9mm can't drop one, great story.

Again Jean Moe from M&M, killed a bear with a pocket knife, begged Tom Frolic from the local 867 cement union to shoot him, just kill him, he survived and still does concrete. Holy cow

To Add: So a guide takes a few people out on a heavily wooded area to view the wildlife, the guide then pulls out his .45 and it was so smooth, no sharp or hard edges.. Confused the tourist asked why his gun looked like that, he said to him, we'll when I empty the clip, it won't hurt so much when the bear shoves it up my A$&

Never been to Kasilof...I'm going to try and get out this summer and get my limit. With the price of salmon being what it is, it would be stupid of me not to fill my freezer.

Man smoked salmon is the best! I love to watch the tourists when I have my blade and .45 on my side in any store, at least nobody messes with me. My gun in the wild has saved me so many times. Well good luck in 7 weeks for the reds. I'll be getting my limit

Just bring a gun and prepare for the bear!

I love the fact that my cabin is 20ff from the Kenai River, some of the richest property in Alaska.

Off topic. Man, if Woody H is on this site, my treat if you fly out Brother. Alaska Hospitality Style!

To be fair, the bear was injured and likely hadn't eaten for some time (had a broken jaw and no tongue). It may have been a more difficult feat if the bear was healthy.

Ah, well that levels the playing field. Still, I don't think I would want to mess with those claws.

I do always feel bad for starving bears, they are in desperation and attack humans when they normally wouldn't.

Former Alaskan myself (Kodiak). Can't say I'd EVER want to fight a bear hand to hand. This guy was EXTREMELY lucky. Pretty uncommon for a bear to just charge a human like that, but usually, they are more determined to just leave the area. Weird story, but glad he came out ok. I've seen semi trucks once, where the bears had torn them open to get at shipped food inside, and that certainly left me against the idea of pitting my fists against their claws.

Apparently this happens a lot in Alaska, this man Gene Moe killed a bear with a knife back in 1999 at the ripe age of 69 years old.

www.outdoorlife.com...

Just saw this story on animal planet, the man himself was on Wild West Alaska and showed the bear and knife hanging on his wall.

The riverside of the Kasilof river is bushly. Any wild biologist I know has a pistol on their hip or have a professional guide with them. Guy was a idiot, plain an simple
