However after the 35-year-old was pictured cuddling up to a mystery woman earlier this week in Wyoming, at Kanye West’s album listening party, it is thought Sofia decided enough was enough.
Kanye West released his highly-anticipated eighth studio album ye over the weekend, which was celebrated by a private listening party out in Wyoming . Touching upon deep topics such as his mental health issues and his recent controversial slavery comments, the seven-track project has given fans a deeper look into West’s thought process and reasoning behind his outbursts and antics.

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- In online discussions of bear attacks, it is not unusual for people to claim that a person is more likely to be killed by lightning than to be killed by a bear. That is true, in a gross sense. You are also more likely to die of a heart attack or to be murdered than to be killed by a bear when you use the entire United States population as a measure.
This comparison is disingenuous. It is easy to avoid being killed by a bear, simply by staying out of areas where there are bears. Lightning strikes occur all over the United States. Significant bear populations are limited to a fraction of the United States. The relative danger of bears and lightning depends a great deal on where you are.
I looked up lightning deaths in areas where there are significant bear populations. What I found was startling. Wyoming is rated as the most dangerous state for lightning deaths, per capita. Wyoming is also one of the top states for fatal bear attacks.
During the decade from 2004-2014, there were two deaths from lightning strikes in Wyoming. During the same period, four people were killed by bears. At least for that decade, for Wyoming, bears were twice as likely to be the cause of death as lightning. The number of people killed by bears has been rising in the last two decades, while the number of people killed by lightning is falling.
Consider Alaska. Lots of bears, and lots of lightning. But Alaska has had zero, zilch, nada people killed by lightning since 1990! During the same period, 1990 to 2014, 16 people were killed by bears in Alaska. Two more people were killed by bears in Alaska in 2017. I have not found any lightning deaths in Alaska for the period after 2014. In Alaska, people are far more likely to be killed by bears than by lightning.
While looking for bear attack information, and lightning, I came across a site from the National Park Service for Yellowstone National Park. During the period since the park was created, there have been more people killed by bears (eight) than have been killed by lightning (five). From nps.gov:
Since Yellowstone was established in 1872, eight people have been killed by bears in the park. More people in the park have died from drowning, burns (after falling into hot springs), and suicide than have been killed by bears. To put it in perspective, the probability of being killed by a bear in the park (8 incidents) is only slightly higher than the probability of being killed by a falling tree (6 incidents), in an avalanche (6 incidents), or being struck and killed by lightning (5 incidents).
In most of the United States, there are few bears, and few bear attacks, or people killed by bears. But in areas where there are lots of bears, especially grizzly bears, bears are a much greater risk than lightning, as the data from Alaska, Wyoming, and Yellowstone National Park (quite a bit of overlap with Wyoming) show.
If you are in the woods, and are confronted by a bear, the odds of an attack have increased enormously. The reason bear attacks are rare is because most people spend little time where bears are. In areas where bears are hunted heavily, most bears learn to fear humans. Bears that have lost fear of humans are very dangerous.
If you see a bear, and the bear does not run off, you may be one of the unlucky, statistical, few for whom a bear attack becomes a reality.

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Years ago Outdoor Edge came out with their Swingblade Knife. It was an ingenious invention. Two knives in one and you don’t have two separate blades requiring two different locking systems. With the push of a button the blade rotates offering another cutting tool.
The main cutting blade is designed for marking the pattern and skinning your big game animals. The secondary blade is designed to run the cut up the belly. If you’ve skinned many animals you know it is always possible to make the cut too deep and cut through the thin stomach muscle and pop the gut, thereby making a mess and contaminating the meat. Then the only option to correct this mis-cut is to trim off any contaminated meat.
Years ago the Wyoming knife was invented to prevent the above problem. This secondary blade eliminates the need for a Wyoming Knife. It has a ball on the tip to prevent puncturing the gut which allows you to work faster. The way it is designed it cuts from the inside out which eliminates cutting through the hair. There are two benefits to this design:
- Cutting through hair dulls a knife.
- Not cutting through the hair reduces contamination.
You could also use it to mark the pattern. The pattern is the initial cut down the belly line and out each leg to the hoof.
Ok, to be a little bit old school. I’ve never really used a Wyoming knife or belly ripper of any kind. I’ve always preached to learn how to skin with a straight blade and learn how to use it. But if you’re inexperienced, no doubt they help eliminate busting a gut and you can make your cuts faster without fear of doing so.
There is one angle that you could argue with me on my point of view though. If you’re hunting dangerous animals many times you will wait an hour or two after the shot before tracking him to ensure that he is dead. During this wait the belly will bloat and be skin tight against the hide making it tough to not slip and cut the belly open. The swelling is speed up immensely if you’re hunting in warm weather.
The same scenario can be true if you’re a bow hunter since you need to wait 30 minutes before tracking your animal.
A third scenario is if you make a marginal shot and your animal runs off. You’ll want to wait 1-2 hrs. to let it bleed out and expire. If it is marginally hit, there’s a good chance that you hit behind the chest wall. If the shot hits in the stomach area, then there will be more stomach swelling than normal, making it harder to skin without hitting the gut.
So as we close, I think this is a well-designed knife. If you like a drop point blade, then you should like it. It’d be cool if OE made it in two options. With a drop point and a clip point blade. But it seems like drop point knives are top of the choices over clip points as compared to 50 yrs. ago, so I understand why they only make one option.
It comes with a decent canvas sheath which appears like it should hold up for years to come. And as usual, we will close with the specs.

Grizzly bears are probably the baddest of the bears, at least in most of North America. While they’re often not what some people like to think, they’re still fairly aggressive, especially when compared to black bears, and will definitely put a hurting on your weekend plans if you screw around with them. However, they’ve also been a threatened species for some time.
However, the population of grizzly bears has been rebounding. It’s rebounding so well that Wyoming will host the first legal grizzly hunt since 1975.
After exceeding recovery expectations while protected by the Endangered Species Act, U.S. Fish & Wildlife officials in Wyoming approved the first grizzly bear hunt to take place in the lower 48 states since 1975.
WGFD has been floating the idea around for several months, and has even hosted a number of public meetings across the state to give folks an opportunity for their opinions to be heard on the proposed 2018 Wyoming grizzly bear hunt.
In the end, the commission unanimously voted 7-0, re-wrote and implemented a final set of regulations, and approved the grizzly bear hunt for this fall.
WGFD highlighted a number of things hunters need to know about the hunt:
- The Department shall generate grizzly bear license issuance lists for hunt areas 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Separate license issuance lists shall be generated based on the residency of applicants for a grizzly bear license. A computer random number selection shall be utilized to determine name placement on the grizzly bear license issuance lists. When a hunting opportunity exists for hunt areas 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6, licenses shall be issued to individuals on the license issuance lists for a specified ten (10) day hunting period as designated and at the direction of the Department. The Department shall issue at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the available licenses to residents prior to issuing a nonresident license. Licenses shall be issued until mortality limits are reached or until the close of the season.
- The application period for the grizzly bear license issuance lists and limited quota drawing shall be July 2, 2018 through July 16, 2018. Completed applications shall only be submitted through the Department Electronic Licensing Service.
- After the drawings for the grizzly bear license issuance lists are completed, the Department shall contact applicants in the order of their ranking on the lists and advise them of the possible opportunity to hunt grizzly bears. The Department shall continue to contact applicants on the lists until ten (10) applicants accept the possible opportunity to hunt grizzly bears.
- Applicants on the grizzly bear license issuance list who are offered and accept an opportunity to participate in the grizzly bear hunt shall be advised of a specified ten (10) day hunting period during which their license shall be valid. Licenses to hunt grizzly bears in hunt areas 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 shall be valid for a single ten (10) day hunt period as specified by the Department and shall not be subject to renewal or hunt period extension.
These are just a few of the listed regulations on the WGFD website, so please take the time to read through all of them at your convenience.
For hunters, this is good news.
Contrary to what animal rights activists like to think, this is good news for the grizzly bear as well. Hunters are typically conservationists. While they like to eat what they kill, as a general rule, they also want to hunt these species for ages to come. They want these populations to be large and healthy, but not so large they endanger humans.
It sounds like the grizzly population is doing well and, in time, will do even better.
