I have seen 2 or 3 similar vids of guys in tree stands where the bear climbs to inspect them, but most stop the bear before it gets to head level. Good video. Stupid-lucky hunter.

I wouldn't have fired when he came to the base of the tree, but I sure would not have just sat there as we came eyeball to eyeball. I also think it's amazing who fast the bear scaled that tree!

That's a very immature black bear - more like a lab than a bear for the most part. Just curious to see what was going on and really provided almost no actual danger. A loud yell would have likely sent him running for the hills.

Bears are cool creatures. Glad to see they are making a comeback in old habitat areas.

As the joke goes....

"how do you know it will be there?"

"Oh....it'll be there.."

Easy call after the event. The danger is very real, though the likelihood of an attack in that situation may be low.
