Pistol, Bear Spray or Both? | Clay Newcomb Learns Bear Defense | Presented by Taurus
Most folks think that bear defense revolves around one age-old debate: pistol versus bear spray. MeatEater's Clay Newcomb, a long time bear man, has always wanted to go deeper and figure out what he can do better in the bear woods. So, Clay sets off to interview Todd Orr, who was mauled twice by a sow grizzly, and then hits the pistol range to be trained by a professional handgun instructor. He also seeks advice about bear safety from a Montana Fish and Wildlife bear technician who's handled hundreds of bear conflicts and, lastly, puts his bear spray to the test in a mock bear-charge simulation. Will Clay come away for the answers he's looking for?

Treestand accidents are common among hunters—but most folks have an “it won’t happen to me” attitude. Greg Litzinger was one of those outdoorsmen, who found out the hard way while in the middle of nowhere in southern New Jersey. When a throttling storm and crippling disaster struck and Greg realized no one knew where he was, his only option for survival was to blow up his spot. Even when help was on its way, there was still the threat of rising water, snakes, and paralysis. Listen to the story of his long road to recovery, which was chock-full of hard days that had him thinking he’d never be able to climb into a treestand again.

How To Clean a Catfish with Clay Newcomb
How To Clean a Catfish with Clay Newcomb
We caught a big catfish and my buddy Ryan is going to teach us how to skin it right at the boat ramp. These flathead are renowned for their "belly meat." This is a big one, but you can use this method with any size catfish. It works best if you have a standard fillet knife and an electric fillet knife. Basically, you first take the two fillets off sides, and then the belly meat. Using the electric knife on the fillets, you cut a 90 degree angle to the skin then turn the knife and run it down the fillet just above the skin. This method doesn't involve pulling the skin off, but cutting it off. You'll need to cut the inner membrane and the skin off the belly meat. After all the skin is off the meat, put them in fresh water over night to draw out the blood and you're ready to cook. *Eating raw onion with all fried flathead is mandatory.
