A Bear Tale

Mr. Adams has a dangerous job.

 Bears are dangerous, and even if you are cautious and well prepared things can go wrong when you are hunting.  This last bear they harvested ended up charging them after it was shot and then the hunter's gun jammed and Dale had to shoot it.  It ended up dying about 10 yards away from them!

Here is the rock that the guys were behind when they shot the bear, and on the ground you can see the blood marking the spot where the bear died.

WOW!  I'm glad they got the bear and that the bear didn't get them!
