Via the Outdoor Pressroom, we haveÂ the first gun incident in Glacier National Park since the practice of carrying firearms wasÂ legalizedÂ in February. Is this the first use in the lower 48? A few weeks ago a hiker shot a grizzly in Denali, up in Alaska, which previously prohibited firearms. This woman shot the ground to scare away a deer, after her pepper spray failed to reach that far. Looks like the rangers issued her a warning rather than a fine. That seems to me to be the right thing to do. I’m not generally a fan of warning shots, but she was doing the right thing carrying the spray and the gun, which is what I’d suggest for someone venturing out into one of our big National Parks.
