Never with a bear... I don't stalk/hunt them and usually they don't want anything to do with people... especially if you make enough noise. You got lucky there pard'!!.... but wild HOGS.... that's something else.
They are probably the one thing in these parts of the Carolina's that I am deathly afraid of encountering in the woods by accident!! They are big, mean, stupid and above all aggressive!! ..and it is the reason I never go into the woods without a handgun as backup... and the larger the caliber the better!!
