I've been told that your ratio of surviving a brown bear attack is directly related to the circumference of your head.  That they like to pop it like a grape for you small headed guys  :chuckle:


Incredible story........  Good they were prepared and used the best weapon of all......good sound clear thinking under pressure  :tup:

Tough guy.  Glad he made it out alive.

Glad he made it out alive, but looking at it after the fact maybe one guy should have in spray and the other gun at the ready.  Hope he makes a full recovery without any permanent problems.

I'm safe then  :IBCOOL: 

A Grizzly bear would take one look at the size of my melon and think to itself "man, ain't no way I'm gonna get that melon in my mouth, look at the size of that!"   and walk off.

Another story from this year.

"Disregard if no grizzlies are in your hunting area.

I elk hunt in moderate grizzly country.  Yesterday my hunting partner frontal shot a big bull at 16 yards and got only 1 lung.  We trailed the bull for 4 hr and finally found him dead and 730 p.m.  Over a mile and a half blood trail.  Huge. We immediately thought that the long blood trail would attract grizzlies.  We boned, bagged, caped (I'll post a pic here on the Meatpole soon) and got out of there at 9 p.m.  We put the cape and horns 200yd from the kill and continued another 200 to stage a few meat bags in the creek.  I suggested that my partner go grab the cape and horns while I fill the water bladders (80 degree day).He went 100 yards. It was dark.  He caught eyes looking at him 70 yards away.  Huge.  He screamed, "hey bear".  And just like that, it charged.  He had his 44 in his hand and fired.  The bear cut the charge and detoured.  He ran back to me.  We both were pretty shook up. It wasn't over.  We staged all 4 bags in the creek and walked directly toward our rig.  2 more griz right in front of us 50 yard. We held our ground, pistols drawn, bear spray ready.  After a few minutes both bears wandered off.  We hightailed it outta there. No further incident. Horsing it out today 
LESSONS LEARNED
1. NEVER, EVER, Split up in bear country for any reason.
2.  Never Put your guard down. Even if you do everything right, the S---- can still hit the fan.
3. Pack both the bearspray and the firearm.  Great idea.
4. Buy the brightest headlight you can if you plan on walking out in the dark in bear country. 
PLEASE BE SAFE OUT THERE GUYS!  Personally, I will not be hunting in moderate griz country from this point on.  6 hours of horror not worth elk.  And elk hunting is what I live for.  "

 :yeah: Yup I hunt solo most of the time and I don't even mess with units that have grizz in them. I have been in a few poor situations with blk bears and that was bad enough let alone dealing with a grizz.

Stay safe man. Have any contacts in the area in case something goes awry ? Have a sat phone in case there's no service ? Also good luck, kill a big elk  ;)

Those old Latin guys must have been pretty darn smart,

That name is fitting.

The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.
