KOA resident bear update

It really is a small world, my friend Janelle from work camped at the KOA, arrived Monday the day after we left, and stayed for the week. The bear was seen walking through the campground and across the road to the river, and then back through the campground again. Apparently they (not sure who "they" are) tried to catch it but weren't able to. Interesting!

it's one thing to bear arms, it's another to arm bears!

KOA needs this guy:

Unless they are trained from birth most dogs don't like the boom of guns or thunder

We use a round called a "Bear Round". The first time I used it I shot it down range......it sounded like "womp". I looked at the range master and said, "that's it??" Before he could reply....BOOM!!!! Sounded like a stick of dynamite cooked off. I'll bring a couple of them next Ouray rally.

Cool, always wanted to try those. I got some 'draggon's breath' from the DOW along with some whistles that are fired from the 12ga. Apparenty they wrk great for Mtn lions and coyotes.

The CG cutter I was on had a 5" gun. I have been below decks when it went off. Holy Moly! I think Luna would have heart failure if she heard one of those.

460 Weatherby I was helping a guy get it sighted in for his big African safari. Even with shooting muffs and ear plugs my ears rang for days, I'm not even going to talk about the bruise on my shoulder!!!!!

Hmmmm.... you think KOA is nazi about party noise, barking dogs, plugging in your extension cords across the road and parking illegally when you are waiting forever to buy dinner (FROM THEM!), what would happen if we started going ape on a bear???? Man, I don't know if I'd rather deal with the bear or the KOA nazi fallout!!! LOL! On a side note, I noticed they say we need to move tents every 3 days in order to preserve the grass. I am VERY surprised we have not yet been asked by anyone to move a tent in all the years we've been there! And we camp for at least 5 days every time.
