It happens. Rarely. More chance of being struck by lightning while sitting in the tree. Way more chance of being killed on the road driving to the hunting area.

Google "bear attack and lightning strike odds outdoors".

Bear attack: 1 in 36,000,000
Lightning strike: 1 in 240,000

Sow with cubs is the wrong bear to be around.

Well apparently those odds aren't a great prediction of Bear attacks vs Lighting strikes in NM this year, for what ever reason. If hunting NM this year probably best to be a little extra careful, just a heads heads up to everyone hunting NM.

I don't find it odd if she was with cubs, they are pretty damn protective. I have two buddies that ran into a sow with cubs on a tight trail, she stood and snapped as the cubs ran, then she followed them. Buddie said she was small and young, probably why they didnt get an [censored] woop'n. A sow with cubs, or old toothless bears are the ones I worry about when I'm out by myself

"Stuff" happens, if you are out in the wilds, anything can happen. You can only be prepared for so many circumstances, it is the one you didn't anticipate that can or will hurt you. You can wear snake boots, but they are only a safety factor, it doesn't mean you will be standing up when a snake strikes you in the butt.
