Dear MSSA Friend,

For any hunter who ever thought about hunting big game with a handgun, especially for Rocky Mountain elk, this book is packed with information that will give readers the knowledge and confidence to take the plunge. Covering all essential aspects of gear and technique, from scouting to game retrieval, Hunting Elk by Handgun opens the door to a challenging method of hunting. Written by a veteran handgun hunter, this book details field-proven practices sufficient to inspire any prospective handgun hunter or refresh and improve the ability of any existing handgun hunter.

This E-book is formatted for Amazon’s Kindle, although Amazon has free apps for computers, tablets and smartphones. It can also be read with free Calibre software.

Watch Out for Foxes Dressed Like Bobcats

I suppose there was once a day in this country that if someone spotted a wild creature about a children’s school, the teacher or perhaps principal would have gathered kids around to point out the animal and talk about it. Not any longer. You lock the kids down in their school in total fear of an animal, and as it turns out, the school officials didn’t even know what the animal was.

At a South Florida school someone reported seeing a “bobcat” roaming around the grounds of the school. A shutdown ensued. Now read the idiot comments made about bobcats:

They typically eat small mammals such as squirrels, rabbits and raccoons, and have a natural fear of people, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

“They’re very shy and reclusive. The only time there would be a concern is if there was rabies,” said Carli Segelson, FWC spokeswoman.(emboldening added)

So if bobcats are fearful of people and are very shy and reclusive, what was it doing at a children’s school playground? Oh, it must have rabies! What if it doesn’t?

Oh, but wait! That doesn’t really matter as it seems the bobcat was really a fox, or turned into a fox. It’s just really not clear.

The important thing is those kids got locked up. Right?

What have we become?

Bear Kills Villager, Villagers Club Bear to Death

Video Included

In or near Karminagar, Andhra Pradesh, India, a bear that had been bothering the local villagers, attacked and killed one of the people there. It is difficult to distinguish the talking in the video but it sounded a couple times as though the reporters were saying the dead villager was attacked while riding a bicycle.

Villagers attempt to scare the bear away from the dead man, with sticks, only to have the bear turn on the people and attack at least one other man. A great number of villagers descend on the bear and club it to death. At some point during the clubbing, a man, whose identity I don’t know, showed up with a rifle and fired two shots at close range at the bear.

Perhaps none of this would have happened if these people had sufficient resources to defend themselves. The report states that the villagers complained that authorities had done nothing about this troublesome bear.

Woman Whacks Bear in Head With Baby Gate

The Kennebec Journal online is reporting that a woman in New Hampshire used a baby gate to fend off an attacking bear so the bear wouldn’t get her dogs.

Hasn’t this been the story all across the country where bears live this summer? Attack after attack, after attack. And still the idiots continue to report how rare it is, blah, blah, blah.

Not to worry though. Everybody is taught to believe that it’s man’s fault that bear get hungry and need to eat and so, everybody continues on in the usual manner as it depicted in the photograph below.

List of Fatal Bear Attacks in North America – 1870s thru 2010s

I didn’t know this until someone emailed me the link. Wikipedia (yeah, I know) has a list of fatal bear attacks in North American dating from the 1870s through present. Here’s the link.

Hungry Grizzly Bears in Yellowstone Likely to Cause Increased Human/Bear Encounters

It is a common natural phenomenon that food for wild animals comes in cycles. Ever since I can remember, mast crops, such as wild nuts and berries come in various amounts depending on several things that effect growth.

According to a report by Thomson Reuters Foundation, due to a minimal crop of available foods for grizzly and black bears, Yellowstone Park authorities are warning visitors that bears will be hungry and looking for food. Because of this natural shortage bears are bound to encounter human beings, partly because the humans are a food source….directly or indirectly.

The author of the article has regurgitated the overused excuse, or coveryourass du jour, that the lack of nuts is caused by climate change…..without offering any definition. Invoking “climate change” is kind of like Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, i.e when you can’t or don’t want to find the truth, simply blame it on climate change.

I remember seeing a poster in the coach’s office in high school when I played football. It read something like this”

Rule #1 The coach is always right.
Rule #2 Refer to Rule #1

This may now be rewritten to read”

Rule #1 Climate change is to blame for everything.
Rule #2 See Rule #1.

Predicting a Devastating Future is Simple When You Are Causing the Devastation

To most, the article in the Mail Online of how the big brains of the world are preparing for what is going to be the demise of the planet and all the people on it, is frightening. I find it ironically laughable; mostly due to the fact that there are none so blind as those who will not see.

If you read this article, what it is at the top level is not a prediction but a warning to us dispensable subjects how we are going to die…..or at least that is their plan. The “big brains” referred to here are, in fact, the ones behind the laundry list of things “human-caused” they are trying to tell us will kill us, i.e. crippling cyber attacks, killer computers, release of engineered diseases, extreme weather events, fast spreading pandemics, wars, food shortages. However, these evil propagators of Satanic work promise that they will, “devise ways of ‘ensuring our own species has a long-term future.” But they aren’t telling us that “our own species” doesn’t include you or I. We are not of the “posterity.”

What is clearly visible, to those with vision, is that the creators of the means for human destruction are claiming to be devising ways to stop their own plans for human destruction. They are perpetuating the fear in all of us in order that they may present their own “savior” and we will eagerly follow.

Should you choose, you may continue to bury your head in the sand.

Seriously! Who’s Lying Here?

This piece of propaganda was found recently on the rear bumper of a Connecticut car. These scumbags deliberately lie for one purpose only. To extort money out of millions of people to ignorant and lazy to even bother discovering the truth.

That poor misunderstood little woofie!
