I am thankful I bought the Ruger Alaskan .44 Mag for black bear protection. If you have been following the other thread I started, you will see various videos of bears in my yard. They usually come between the hours of 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning once a week during the months of March through October.

Well tonight/early morning I came within seconds of having an encounter with a black bear in my yard. As usual, my wife and I took our three dogs out on leashes to the "dog yard" to do their thing before going to bed. It was completely dark in the area with faint lighting coming from a porch area, and light coming from spotlights down in the walkout basement area. We typically stand in the upper area to the left of the basement area. The basement lighting really only serves to warn us of any bears approaching since many times they come from that direction. Tonight was no exception.

Since it was completely dark and since my neighbors turned off their outside garage lights that would alert me to a threat coming from that direction, we did not stay long outside....I just didn't feel comfortable even though I was using my flashlight to light up areas. As soon as I stepped into the house and closed our kitchen door, two Ring cameras went off.

Here is the walkout basement video showing the bear walking to where we were standing in the "dog yard". It showed up before I even had time to turn off the spotlights Ring #AlwaysHome
