    It is a freaky feeling to walk outside and a bear is 15feet away just looking at you. My wife carries an airhorn and a 9mm when she's walking the dog in the morning. I think they're both noisemakers but it should give me time to get outside with something better (bigger)

    Lots of people shoot bears with .44s, and even .357s... but there's a huge difference between hunting a bear, choosing your position, and shooting one from a distance, and between having one step out from around a building or tree a dozen feet from you.
    Actually good info their TRX... Their are so many here, I just pretty much ignore them.. Every single night they are in my dirt road in front of the house here..
    Their like giant racoons with black fur.. I do not mind them.. Just make some noise or ignore them and they will leave you alone.. Do NOT never ever feed them.. Like a gator, they will associate your hand with food. Not good.
    When they are trying to get in my garbage, I have super strong garbage cans. I found that a "Tall Boy" full beer aimed at their head, seems to work fairly well.

    bear attacks in wi are very very rare . he should be more concerned with the wolves that are getting bolder . they have been seen south of Madison an over near occonamowoc, marshal, watertown IMO the DNR is full of crap on there numbers .

    three were seen near the interstate last year near Stoughton about a mike from I90 buy bow hunters . suspodely a guy has them on trail cameras as well . They dont often harm humans either . but Id be more scared of them than bears for some reason.

    any way if he is attacked for real an need to really stop a full grown pissed one it better be some thing big . I doubt it will ever happen even if he tried to get attacted .

    A 44 mag is fun to shoot Im sure a 357 will do just fine . there are some big bears in WI up north.

    I go up north trout fishing an I have very littel worry about bears . I have a 357 in the truck however in camp . Id honetly shoot in the air before shooting a big bear unless it was running stright at me . a pissed off wounded bear would be really bad .

    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

    We have nuisance bears here (Griz and Black bear). When I hike in the back country I carry a S&W .500.
