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.

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

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

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

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.
