    I do! I bow hunt and it's hard to drop a bear with an arrow as I'm running away. Plus, there's cow moose and their calves that get me bugged as well.

    And yeah - fire shots at a bear and more than likely they'll turn and run. If not - reload!

    I received that in an email a few years ago. It was funny then and it's still funny now. I thought they were real bears until the one demonstrated a few Jackie Chan-esque moves.

    Here in Iowa we don't have many bears, but we do have wild dogs, coyotes and cougars. Even though the DNR claims there are no cougars in Iowa, people see them and take pictures all the time...

    But to answer your question, yes I always take a firearm everywhere I go (never know when you'll see a bear-zombie).

    lol thats funny stuff actually i think the bear doing a round house was pretty funny, obviously the best part is when he kicked he bear in the nuts.

    actually i dont think there are ANY wild bears in my state (ohio) im not one to go hiking much but i'd say take a gun with you anyway you just never know what might attack you in the woods.. 4legged or 2.
    If you can't shoot well, shoot often.

    I've always carried a pistol backup no matter what I was hunting.

    Are you sure that's a kitty and not a shapeshifting alien from the planet Xandar, DB? Remember, you're really not all that far from Area 51, geographically speaking. I also hear they're drawn to the sound of music. You don't bring your acoustic guitar to play during breaks while shooting I hope? :P

    You do that and you may as well slap some orange sauce on, paint a bright red bullseye on the back of your shirt and assume the fetal position.

    You know, I used to think the same thing about Northern Kentucky, NO BEARS here! Until the state and county starting setting live bear traps in the area about 2 years ago. You never know what is out there. Bears, Coyote, Bob Cats; we have had them all in the last couple years here on the farm, or close by. We have a herd of deer also.

    So I carry a gun on the farm, off the farm and even when I am in the barn.
