An interesting addition to the narrative.
It is nice to see that the hunter is not being painted as a lily-livered sissy. Many previous articles on the incident portrayed the hunter as doing nothing more than throwing the pistol toward the guide and running away.


I can tell you quite plainly that I carry with a round in the chamber. If it isn't ready to go bang, there isn't much point in having it.
I believe that to be true in many potential encounters. But past experience with bears reaffirms that belief, for predators in particular.
