Almost hit a bear last night.
 
Last night me & a buddy went to poach some blueberry's in the million acres of blueberry fields close to me. On the way back all of the sudden there was a black blur in front of my truck, I hammered on the brakes & just missed him.

I was doing about 70km/h, luckily he was running in the same direction as I was going. He veered slightly to the left as I skidded right up beside him, he never broke stride & for about ten seconds I drove right beside him. He was so close I could've hopped on & rode him home.

I've seen as many as 10 bears down there in one night, I used to have a big spotlight & when I would shine it into the fields you should see all the eyes that light up.

I always park & smoke a big bomber before I go in, while I do you can hear them vacating the premises.

I'm sorry to hear this. I'm glad you're ok though.

TT, where do you live? I'm pretty sure I'd shit myself if I nearly hit a bear.

^ Theres bears in New York isn't there?

(not in the city obviously)

Not in that part of NY. Hitting a bear is nothing, hitting a fucking cow now that's something.

Yes in the Catskills and upstate, but I've never seen one in person.

Interesting, I was under the impression they were quite common throughout the north east.

You could probably hurt yourself quite a bit hitting an animal at speed.
