Last weekend at the motorcycle rally parade in Ruidoso a wild bear decided to join the parade. Local PD had to chase him off. I think this hunter got a little more excitement than he or them bargained for.

While hunting elk in Colorado about 20 years ago I was using a cow call and to my amazement a young bear about 100#'s responded and walked to within 5 ft of me. Not being comfortable with his disregard of my existence I stood up and told him to get out. He was reluctant and I picked up a rock and hit him with it. He scurried up a tree. I picked up my muzzle loader and hoofed it about a mile away and sat down again to call. To my shock after about 15 minutes this crazy bear shows up again not allowing him to get so close again I again throw some rocks at him finally hitting him and he again goes up a nearby tree. I have always pondered why he was so unafraid of a man. I'm thinking he was resettled there from a park or camp ground. He probably didn't last too long as someone would be sure to take him out with a bear license.

.....and after a Bear encounter Claude said:

I'd run and that bear would run up to me and I'd stop. That bear'd slide past me and I'd turn and run the other way. That old bear would catch up and I'd stop & that old bear would slide past me.

Bubba asked: Wuz you scairt?

Claude answered: Heck yeah I was scairt, what do you think that bear was a' slidin' on....... loser8

wife & I were in Yellowstone watching a grizz, she asked what do we do if the bear charges, all I gotta do is outrun you.

Just a bit to close for comfort.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

That is a real close encounter of the britches loading kind laugh

You know if that guy would have let that bear walk that would have been okay since the bear decided to let him walk.
Congrats to him for keeping his composure and harvesting what appears to be a big bear, bet his heart was about to thump out of his chest during that encounter.
