No but had a close in counter with a nest of yellow jackets this afternoon. They even took possession of my riding mower.

Albuquerque on the east side of interstate 25 near the Sandia mountains has been getting black bears in their area.

These are the ones that made the news.

Even though I've done a lot of hunting in bear country, I have been lucky concerning bears,,, coons have always seemed to be my biggest pest in the woods. I honestly believe if they wanted,, they could get into the Fort Knox vault,,, coons or 5 year old kids can get into damn near anything. I've hung coolers of food between trees to keep a camp free of food smells,, no bears, but coons somehow got into them. I had to bust a rabid coon out catfishing one evening,, apparently Mr. Raccoon just likes to aggravate me,, oh well.

Was shooting at my parent's house quite a while back (before I got my 1911, because I was still shooting my Smith, so at least more than a year and a half). This was when I was shooting those reloads some of you may remember me speaking of (HOT reloads. I shot 6 and gave the rest back to the guy who gave them to me. They'd been loaded for use in a rifle).

Good sized doe walked right up in front of the target, stopped, and stared at me. Well... I had no intention of shooting it. But because those hot reloads had shot my tensioner screw loose, I wouldn't have been able to anyway.

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo, why didn't you empty the mag into its face again? I suppose that next time you witness a mugging you might call the weather service?

I think the only "scarey" encounter was when I bought my girlfriend a telescope. We drove out into the country side to set it up since it was only a five or ten minute drive.

After a couple minutes we heard a few coyotes howling at a distance. It seemed like each howl they were a little closer, so we called it quits. On the drive back we seem three that looked like they where heading to the spot we left......decided I'm going to carry a rifle with me when we go out next.

Had a scary encounter involving a telescope once. Went to my uncle's house and saw his. Thought he'd been doing some star gazing. Then I peeked through and realized it was pointed at his neighbor's bedroom window, and she was waving!

Wellllllllllll, the game warden would get mad and argue that I could've just scared it off. Also, people(not really sure who) go back into the woods to study the black bears. They also would've been mad. Also, he was walking in a field and if I had somehow killed him the owners of said field would be mad that I killed it in their field. Again, I had a .22 loaded with some 40gr Eley target rounds, not exactly a hunting round. So, in the end NOT shooting it was my best option.

We have a lot of coyotes were I live. Sometimes they get so close you can't sleep with all there howling, so I fire off a few rounds in their general direction to shut them up
