We were 200 river miles from the nearest road,this bear was not leaving before he ate someone. Yelling,dog barking,warning shot, I even hit him across the face.

As Elmer said "Hell,I was THERE!"

You do you! Not likely you will convert me.

I'm truly grateful I dismissed advice similar to yours ,relied on my own judgement and was not helpless when faced with this 6 foot 6 in nose to tail predatory old boar black bear.

I had my Win 97 12 ga and my Ruger SBH.
I've read that story of yours before and I love it, HiBC. I've referred it to other people for them to read.

Now, had it happened to me camping with my former spouse, it would have saved me lots of $$$$ in alimony payments years down the road!
Life is simply an inter-temporal problem of constrained optimization.
