    Subject: Almost eaten my self !!
    Date: Sep 8, 2006
    Sender: ShowCase CabinetsPrevious | Next

    I Grew up in Washington State near North Bend. Every dear season I would venture up to the Snoqualmie Pass and hunt deep in the woods.
    Most times I would hike as far as 5 miles in by my self with only a Winchester 308 and a 44magnum hand gun. Cell phones were not available then to most of us.

    I remember many times looking back and seeing very large 200 to 400lb black bears following me with there heads down... creeping up on me at a slow and sometimes fast clips. They always show up when you least expect them!! And most of the time they are never heard.

    One such bear seemed to have moved behing me at the end of a very nice hunting day. Sunny, warm and very very peacefull. The bear followed me for some 100 yards or so, moving off the trail and back on again. Every time he would appear again he was much closer, as if he was gaining on me. This is what un nearved me and made me stop to think.

    When I stopped and had a cigerette waiting to see if he would come back out on the trail he just vanished from, and some 5 minutes had passed as I put the cigerette out and started walking... Just 20 feet in front of me this same very large black bear moved out onto the path and just stood still looking directly into my eyes. I could see his look, hear him smelling and growning.... This went on for about 2 minutes then....

    He started walking towards me in the center of the trail. I then cocked my 308. Drew up and yelled YEAH, HEY GET OUT OF HEAR...very loudly at him. Waving my arm and holding my scope on his head....

    He did not stop and when he was no more than 10 feet away I fired and killed it. It was almost dark..Very late in the season and we had just had a drought with very little water for the salmon to spawn. The natural black, salmon and blue berries were very poor and almost non existant. So was I his next meal?? I will never know, but I to this day feel I was... I ran most of the way back at a very fast clip, out over 2 miles back to my truck and by the time I was half way out, it was dark. Pitch black.... I have never been so scared in my life while hunting in the deep woods.

    The tought of being eaten by a brown bear or black bear for that matter is a very real fear!
    Since that day some 25 years ago. I no longer hunt, and only venture out to shoot with a camera now, and try to stay close to help if needed.

    But I still remember what almost happened to me and find it obsurd and insane what Treadwell did for 13 years.....


    Like most readers who have made comments on the film, I to find it very stange and disturbing to watch...

    His comments and feelings about God and Christ only make my faith in Jesus stronger! Not having a gun in the maze is insane... But not knowing the Lord Jesus and being in the maze is a for sure 1 way ticket straight into hell!
