    I will say that this is not the first instance of bow hunters not being familiar with their fire arms. Remmi Warren apparently has a video where he's holding a gun ready with a bear near by, and the gun is not in battery because he tried to load it with the wrong ammo. Then, when him and Steven Rinella and crew were attacked by a brown bear in Alaska, he had his gun store in his pack and away from his person. The moral of the story is that you've got to be ready and a beer may have claimed your kill whether you realize it or not. When the Meat Eater crew was attacked, it was the same way as described here. Went back for an elk the next day and didn't think anything of it. A big boar came charging right in with no warning.
    That wasn’t Remi Warren, it was Adam Greentree. Adam is from Australia and a friend gave him the gun to use, being an Aussie he had no experience with the gun. The gun had the right ammo He just didn’t kmow how to use it.

    Ahhh. I hear Rogan talking about it occasionally, and haven't seen the video itself. That makes sense. Remi definitely had his in his pack during that bear attack though. Thanks for the correction.

    Both stories highlight the issue that you must know your equipment inside and out and you must have it on you to do any good.

    Wife sent me this article yesterday. Guy coming back from checking his trap line is charged by a grizzly, which he kills. He makes it back to his cabin to find that the grizzly had just killed his wife and daughter.
