I think that Bear knew he was in for a tough fight just because the hunter already had the high ground. Either way, Bear played it cool so did hunter

I think it would be interesting if you run a thread about your bear experiences. I picture a griz somewhere with a clock ticking in it's stomach and looking for you. Like captain Hook and his croc friend.

Ya need to study bear behavior and habits, JJ.

You're more likely to be attacked by the neighbors cocker Spaniel than by a bear.
