Default Black Bear vs Guy in a Tree Stand

The guy shooting this video is deer hunting from his tree stand,
when an adult-aged black bear mosey's into the clearing directly below his tree. What the bear does when it looks up the tree and sees the hunter
may surprise you. I personally think its an "oh crap!" moment, but this guy has got to be one cool customer ... either that, or he had a video camera in one hand and a .44 magnum in the other!

The moral of this story must be ... "if confronted by an adult-aged black bear, just be calm and act cool ... then merely ask the bear a question."

Ya got'ta turn your audio up so you can hear this,Ya just won't believe it
unless you hear it for yourself ! ! .

That was too funny, but I would have been a little more vocal! He was halfway up the ladder

OMG! I think I would have shot that bear if it hadn't taken off when it did. I would not wait for it to start mauling me! I am pretty sure that would have been justified. And he had it on camera to back up the story.

She obviously thought it was her tree stand. An understandable mistake.

Oh, and Trez? Haven't you seen a bear ride a bicycle?

The hunter was pretty calm, might have been his weapon that gave him the confidence.

I would have helped him dig the hole or skin it out. Opportunity wasted!
