At least we would have video.
So what do you do when hiking and a bear comes walking down the trail at you?

I don’t know what the correct course of action would be in that situation but I can say with 100% certainly I would have [censored] my pants.


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

How stupid you gotta be? When I was 27 or so, Momma told me I would be mature when I didn't put myself in position to be hurt so much. Wish she woulda told me that earlier.

Obviously a well known bear around there, older looking but still dumb as hell. "Hey big boy"

Older, dumb bears are more likely to take easy protein sources they normally would avoid.

So I’m not a bear expert, but you say this guys an idiot. What else was he supposed to do? From the little I know, you are supposed to be vocal and let the bear know you are there, and you dang sure aren’t suppose to run. With that said, I do know exactly at what point I would have crapped myself!

I would have had a pistol in my hand pointed at that bears dome in case things went south instead of videoing with a phone… that is a big bear!

Haha....I know the feeling.

I can remember mine (Mom) telling me and my 3 brothers that "Pain was natures way of telling you....you just did something stupid".

A truism....we managed to disregard until well into our 20's. By God's grace we all survived (even until today), but learned some painful lessons along the way.

Can't say 'Mom' didn't try to spare us the consequences of youthful bliss and ignorance.


Spartans ask not...how many, but where!

That bear is habituated to humans he's not scared of you. If he wants something he'll take it and he'll hurt you to get it.


for every stereotype there's a prototype

For one thing I certainly would not be trying to call it over to me hammer
I hope that I would have enough sense to just stand still and silent until it walked past me then nonchalantly walk away in the opposite direction.

According to https://www.travel-experience-live.com/what-to-do-grizzly-bear-encounter/ these folks did exactly what you should do. I do not imagine that I would have the wherewithal to video.

Defensive Grizzly Bear Encounters
A defensive confrontation almost always happens during a surprise grizzly bear encounter. Remain calm and do not run. Most grizzly bear charges are bluff charges.
*Stand your ground and talk to the grizzly bear in a low, monotone voice, allowing it to identify you as human.
*Don’t scream or yell at the bear. This may come across as threatening.
*Wave your arms, making yourself appear as large as possible. Move to higher ground if possible.
*Avoid direct eye contact, but use your peripheral vision to watch the animal.
*Pick up small children.
*Keep your backpack on, it may offer protection for your back in the extremely unlikely case of an attack.
*Get your bear spray ready by removing the safety lock.
*If the bear does not approach you, back away slowly, preferably at an oblique angle. Bears consider sideways movements non-threatening.
*If the bear does charge you, use your bear spray, preferably before it is within 25 feet (6 meters).


My daughter has encounters bears while hiking and hunting in Montana, it is going to happen. With out more detail, I doubt these folks went looking to have a confrontation with a bear. But they are lucky

You announce your presence so they hopefully realize you aren't good to eat and they aren't startled by your presence. You don't run from them because that's stupid. Hopefully someone in the group had a bear caliber rifle or at least a can of spray ready.

Well I'll be darned, you are actually suppose to talk to them scratch

Hi Mr. Bear how are you doing today? I hope you are not hungry but if you are please don't eat me for I have a terrible diet and work hard on my job and around the house so my meat would be tough and taste like crap.
You would enjoy eating the Democrat near me for he has better health care, probably a lot better diet, he has never had a job or lifted a finger doing any kind of work so his meat will be a lot more tender with very good marbling and taste a lot better than me grin

Was just in Big Bend a few weeks ago. Just black bears there, but there are signs everywhere instructing you to make yourself appear larger than you are (hold your hands above your head, hold up a jacket or backpack), talk to it like the guy in the video was doing, throw rocks or sticks in its direction if it starts coming towards you, slowly back away, but don’t turn your back or run.

The signs gave the same advice for mountain lions. We didn’t see either animal, but one trail we hiked, which was near our camp ground, apparently is a popular bear spot. Tons of scat along the trail, and two groups hiking the trail at the same time we were saw bears on the trail.
