Wishin' I was Fishin'
Ahahah, guy must have been real used to and comfortable with bears to let him get that close, then just talking to him.
Nail on the head! He was incredibly calm. Wouldn't try that around a brown or grizzly, but black bears (aside from obviously being curious) are shy and generally not aggressive, and will try to avoid people. Just don't get between a mama & her cubs.Ahahah, guy must have been real used to and comfortable with bears to let him get that close, then just talking to him.
Could be, but I have seen hunters -- maybe not as experienced -- get near-panicky at the prospect of shooting a bear, even with the bear up a tree. :disappoinHe was a hunter, so I'm assuming he had hunting gear (gun) so that might have helped keep him calm too I guess.
I am a Yamaha guy myself.Lookin for a new (used) 250f. What do you guys like. Crf, yz, rm, kx, ktm. Also any of u guys got pics of a 250 in the back of a double cab short bed?

That could be a topic for a whole new thread.That isn't hunting IMO.
Same thing happened to me. I got a new belt out of it at 60K miles. What a mess it made.I finally got an oil change on my truck and the mechanic left the empty bottle of
oil under the hood. :wtf: I thought my whole engine was going to explode.Either that, or
I was going to explode on him ... Sighs...
My belt was ok yours probably is too. The service advisor misunderstood me when I said the belt chewed a hole in the bottle - he thought I said the belt got chewed by the bottle. So they put a new belt on because of the misheard - complaint.Oh, hell . I didn't even THINK about checking the belt. WHERE is my mind ? In my defense, I
had 2 very over hyped kids dying to go to Hurricane Harbor. UGH !! I'm gonna go pop my hood in 100 degree weather now . Oh, the joys ...
That requires several beers/beverages to calm the nerves. And well deserved for all the work required. Good job not kissing any trees.Went ahead and stickied the thread.
Also got into a bit of a pickle on a slope today. That would be about 2 inches from tree to fender. Any forward or reverse movement caused me to continue to slide further downhill into the tree. Took a couple hours and felled the tree, but made it out under own power! Oh, and no damage to my truck!
I'm an expert at that with all the firewood cutting we do. Because I know trees can kick out on the opposite side, no way was I going to cut it at the ground and risk it going into the fender. So took it off above the bed first, then cut the bottom (and was able to push a lot of the bottom over since the tree was rotted). This video gives you an idea of the slope, which the picture above really doesn't do it justice. Had a hard time getting in a position to cut the tree where I wouldn't fall out of the bed.That's pretty impressive... one wrong move dropping that tree, and the truck could have taken a serious hit. :thumbsup:
