Kyle Kinmon, Spearfisher

I had a close encounter with a hungry big bull shark three days ago and wanted to say thanks for saving my life! I was spearfishing on the Great Bahama Bank and had just shot a large hog fish. After wrestling it from underneath a ledge, I turned and looked up to push off the bottom toward the surface. I was 40 feet deep and hugging the fish to my chest. To my surprise, I made immediate eye contact with a very thick eight foot bull shark coming full speed in attack mode directly toward me. Amazingly, when it got within 10 feet, it turned 90 degrees to the right, swam to the bottom and disappeared into the distance. I have no doubt that if I was not wearing the freedom 7, I would have been badly injured, and lost my trophy hog fish! I have had the shark shield for more than five years and will never be without it while spearfishing. Thank you.
