Re: bear attack

What if your only defense option was the side arm? Are you supposed to take the mauling for mother nature?

I did find this on the Montana FWP website.

"If a black or grizzly bear attacks, and if you have a firearm and know how to use it safely and effectively, Montana law allows you to kill a bear to defend yourself, another person or a domestic dog. If you do kill a bear in self defense you must report it to FWP within 72 hours."

I would hope if the Feds feel differently about defending against a grizzly attack, the Montana FWP website would reflect that.
