Default OMG i seen a bear 2day while i was squirrel hunting

I was walking along the road so i took the shell out of the 12 gauge. I heard something to my right and i put the shell back in it and turned the safety off. I seen it making alot of ruckus and stuff I shot in the air to scare it away and that just made it make more noice I shot in the air again and it stopped and just stood there. I started wakling off slowly then like started running... LOL

HEre in KY they have been trying to re astablish the bear population... I have seen quite a bit of them up here where i live. E ven in my front yard... lol.... This is one experience i wont foget..

So, did it do anything to actually threaten you..or were you just running for good measure?

Dont come to Montana. It is not unormal for me to see a grizz most days I elk hunt.Here in Montana dont worie about the bears stay cleer of the moose. They are 5 to 10 times more likly to try to run your but down.

Hunt in pairs, that way when a bear attacks, you just have to run faster than your partner

Running for good measure huh????

You do know that a bear is a predator and as such has an instinct to chase down anything that is running from it???????????????

Never Never run from a bear. No matter what it is doing. You are lucky the bear was uninterested in you.
