    Some city dweller would have tried to befriend the bear and ended up like Grizzly Man. Grizzly Man’s last thought? “Scat!” It was a premonition.

    Holy crap that was scary for me. I have always had a phobia concerning things that could eat me if they wanted to. It’s amazing how fast it climbed!

    Ever seen that movie “The Edge” with Anthony Hopkins? Watching that movie for the first time gave me nightmares for a week, lol!

    Black Bear = Obamacare

    Guy in tree = Regressive who falsely believes that Obamacare will not hurt them financially as higher taxes on the rich will pay for everything.

    I had this happen to me two years ago. I got in my stand early and come daylight I looked in the tree next to me and there was 2 cubs and Mama Bear was not happy I was there. She circled my tree for 20 mins. or so, all the time bellerin’ for her cubs, climbing halfway up the tree toward me then back down. Finally the cubs wised-up an climbed down and they left quietly. I’d be lyin’ if I told you I wasn’t scared outta my mind. It could have been a bad day.

    It seemed he was quivering a bit, just like he was shitting his shorts. Bears eat just about everything but they don’t eat shit.

    Black bears aren’t as aggressive as grizzlies bu that would still scare the heck our of me.

    For a story about idiots getting lucky not to be chomped by a black bear, check out this story from 2009 about a black bear that walked into a fur store in Aspen, CO. The idiots walked up to it with cell phone cameras and took pictures.

    Man! I’m amazed at how FAST that bear moved! I know their cumbersome look is deceiving – but still.

    Nice reminder that you are not at the top of the food chain when you step into the woods.

    I can’t believe that guy didn’t have an arrow knocked and his bow in hand. This is not uncommon while hunting bears over bait.

    I’m pretty sure one or both of those guys either had a good handgun ready or had an arrow nocked while that was going on.

    There are quite a few black bears in the forest where I frequently hunt. They are typically not aggressive. Who knows what prompted that bear to do that.
    From now on I will keep a side arm with me when I don’t have a shotgun or rifle. You never know….

    PS – I was skunked on opening day. I saw at least 10 deer, but couldn’t get a clear shot.

    Bear spray would be a better choice of defense against a bear, unless you are out hunting bear. There have been a bunch of people killed by wounded bears. That’s what you will be dealing with if you don’t hit the sweet spot with the first shot.
    A bear can cover 100 yards in 4 or 5 seconds.

    @ Don – The Edge is an excellent movie. Alec Baldwin didn’t even have to act; he played an obnoxious, entitled New Yorker.

    Hey, y’all. Those guys were HUNTERS. They were in what’s called a DEERSTAND. They had RIFLES. The only danger they were in would have been a) falling out the tree, or b) harassment by Obamarrhoid GREEN cops, lawyers et al. for killing the black bear.
