A Saskatchewan bear hunt gets scary and you never know what's going to happen next.  Worth watching the whole video.

They sure do climb fast!  Faster than the hunter could have unlatched his safety strap and jumped.

Great video, what an awesome encounter. And to think that non hunters wonder why we spend so much time in the outdoors.


If I'm not hunting, I'm preparing for my next hunt.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

If you want to be successful, Be like a postage stamp, Stick to it until you get there

I know, YD, but if that bear had begun to chew on an apendage, jumping would have been an option - not necessarily a good one, though.  Kinda like people jumping from tall buildings to get away from a fire.  If I'm climbing a tree in bear country, I think I'd have some bear "medicine" on my hip.

I agree. When archery hunting here in AZ it's illegal to carry "medicine" last I heard

here in mn, the only time yuo can carry a side arm that isnt the primary hunting weapon is if you have a license to carry

or if hunting what is considered a "dangerous" animal such as bear

i know ifn i was hunting bear i would have a rather large pistol as back up

 

i had an uncle whome,years back,had a sow come up his tree when he was bow hunting for bear.

he said he was at full draw and pointing right at her mouth when she made it to the bottom of his stand.

but she was more spooked of him and jumped out of the tree when she spotted him.

he is a rather ugly person to look at lol

I think I'd have more faith in bear spray to be honest. I think it's been proven that it has higher success rates. Sometimes due to the person using it being more successful administering it.

a buddy of mine that used to be a supervisor for the dnr (retired now)

said he would never rely on that spray,he always carried(still does) a 454 casul(sp?) as a side arm into the woods

we only have blacks here and that wont ricochet of the skull like smaller calibers will,but will go clean thru

I'm sure spray would work , but what if the thermals carry it back up into the stand ? From friends that have been sprayed in their training for law enforcement work , I know it is an unpleasant experience when it's in your face . I carry the spray AND my short shotty while in my bow stand ... one of em will work for sure . Great video .

I am very impressed with the sounds they made and how they reacted to the sounds the others were making.  I am guessing there were 3 or 4 different bears in that vid.  I still would have been instrested in being involved in an encounter like that.

Knapper, That's about as close as I'd want to be.  I mean who's packing extra undies?

I may be a adrinalinal juncky but I would feel like it is the right kind of hunt and I feel I can read most of there theoughts, other than the ones that say lets eat him.  I have been quite close to bears several times and enjoyed the encounter.  Of course they left and I only dieded once.

Thats probably the coolest video I have ever seen of bear hunting. Nothing like up close and personal. I had to watch it twice as I didn't think a bear could scale a tree that fast - wow.

 

I read an article about wasp spray and how good it worked instead of pepper spray or bear spray. I think the main reason is because it squirts a stream about 20 feet and you can hit your target a lot farther away. Of course in that video, he wouldn't have had time to even grab the can and the bear was on his back side.


Finally retired and now I am learning how to farm and ranch. Been fun so far.

I have seen a Grizzly go up a hill and over the other side with speed equial to that of the one coming up the tree.
