You probably know some really tough SOBs.
How well do the best of them stack up against Tom, here?

Is a bad day of hunting better than a good day at work?

That would depend on what the bear did to you when you were hunting. Check out this crazy survival story, in their own words:

   *    *    *    *    *

So our dear friend Tom Sommer went elk hunting in MT. Decided to tangle with a Grizzly this morning. Tom didn’t win but he made it out alive after a 5 mile mule ride after the incident.

He is in hospital being stitched up. I will have more info as it trickles in. One thing is certain. There is no way the bear survived that bite. :).

Apparently, Tom pulled his pistol but bear swiped it out of his hand. sounds like Tom was saved by quick thinking friend with pepper spray. I am sure lots more to Come


Ok people. Tom just called. He is alive and well. In a little hospital in Ennis, MT. 90 stitches in his head.

So the story goes they are on a ridge working elk, they spot a griz at 30 yards so Tom yells at it.

Tom says apparently Griz don’t like to be yelled at.

It charged. Tom And partner Dan both pulled out pepper spray. Dan sprayed but Tom’s spray didn’t work so bear came after Tom.

Tom ran behind a tree, bear kept coming. apparently bear chased Tom around tree twice, Tom got his pistol out turned to shoot, bear knocked his hand down.

Tom hit ground. Bear bit through thigh then put Tom’s head in his mouth. While head in mouth tom tried to shoot bear in neck but bear stepped on hand /gun. Tom said he could hear his skull cracking. thought that was it. Dan shot bear at 2 feet with pepper spray.

That’s all it took. Bear ran off and Tom shot at it but said he couldn’t see anything from all the blood and pepper spray in his face.

4 hours later after several hours on back of mule he is alive and in hospital.

Great spirits. Was laughing. Hope I did his story justice.


Crazy bastard is being released today!!!!!!

There are people out there who would hear that story and stay indoors for the rest of their life.

They need to read this.
