The "official" temp is 38 with a wind chill of 31 here this morning. My thermometer says 34 degrees. Outstanding cold for South Florida!   ;D

The weather and news agencies have nothing better to do so now they are sensationalizing the weather broad cast and are putting names of minor snow storms.
Yep we had a light dusting last night and they named it Inga.
It's gotten so bad I don't even watch public TV anymore can't stand all the sensationalism in the news cast.
  I get my weather info directly from the national weather service online. No ads, no hype!   :)

When you consider that both bucks would die without some intervention, doing something, even if a "long shot" , is better than doing nothing.  JMO!   :)

When I  order(win) a new caliber gun, I order loaded ammo, brass, dies and bullets at the same time. In this case, I have a scope and rings on hand. The amazing part is all look to arrive on the same day for once from four different sources. Midway, Midsouth and Graf's for the parts and Fur Feather and Fin for the Ruger 450 Bushmaster!   ;D  Being 100% cynical, I'll believe it when it happens!

At least a "cold front" here makes the sail fishing great!   Temps are dropping!   :)

I don't fight those "cougars" off too much!  We do have "everglade panthers" that are the same 4 legged critter you have, just the geography difference.  :)
I would be less worried about the 4 legged kind then the 2 legged ones since they can and will take the shirt off your back and leave you out in the cold with out a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. ;D
   Pretty hard to squeeze blood out of a turnip!  LOL!  It's usually the other way around, T D!

Usually I hear about gator or snake problems here in Florida.  A bear attack in Florida is a new one for me.  :)

I guess you will have to stock up on Bear spray ;D
  The guy was letting his dog out when attacked. No mention of what breed of dog!   ;D

I wish they had of chambered it in the .460 S&W. It is a far better cartridge. In my Ruger No1 I get 3000fps with a 200gr XPB, 2600fps with the 275gr XPB and 2400fps with the 325gr Barnes Buster. Powder is LiL' Gun.
I agree, but if I understand correctly, the "straight walled case" rules limit  the length of the cartridge in a very few states. Yea, the 454 or the 500 would be better ideas. I believe the 460 is a tad too long. The 450 Bushmaster basically "twins" the 45-70 in a much shorter case. Besides, you can't sell new guns in easy to find or load rounds.  ;D

I was just reading an article about a bear attack near Naples, Florida. It's just about across the state from me, maybe 75 miles.   :)

A quick look says loaded ammo, dies, brass and bullets for the 450 Bushmaster ain't easy to find online. 4 different sources to accomplish all of them!    I do see the 16" barrel as  about perfect for my hog hunting in the jungle. I have one on the way. There is load info available for "pistol" bullets online, 225gr. Hornady and 275gr. Barnes.
