well, i think he was unethical. i mean, look how far back he hit the bear. should have waited for a nice quartering away shot.

also, i doubt he waited 12 hours to follow the blood trial like he should have . obvoius gut shot.

sheesh!

Thats Crazy that he survived, i wonder if he still goes bear hunting, and i cant believe he took that shot ither quartering away is the only ethical shot he should have taken! (yeah.)

I was in the infantry long enough to know you always keep someone on guard duty while the others are sleeping... hunting dangerous game like this is no different... this was completely preventable imho... but ya, it sucks big time... bet they take a different route next time...

OUCH. That hurts to just look at.


It looks to be all true except for someone else shooting it...and of course the ankle pic as nyorange pointed out.

When I first saw the ankle picit threw up a red flag because no bear or animal could've done that kind of damage. Glad someone pointed it out and cleared it up or I'd've called BS.

OT- the link is a perfect example of how people re-mix everything into something different. At the top of the page it says a guy was attacked in his sleep then managed to get the bear off him then shoot it. At the bottom of the page, he ran, tripped over a rock, was pounced on,then a fellow camper shot the bear.

[bad joke]I've heard of gettin' away "by the skin of your teeth" but never the skin of your head.[/bad joke]

This is from a while back but no less gruesome today than it was then.

That last ankle picture made me hike my nuts up...... Lord it looks like he shot himself in the ankle before letting the bear have it....dude must have one hard head to take a mauling like that and not end up with a tooth in the brain.
