The bear had fled through a thicket of devil's club, and circled around to within a few yards of the trail he had taken up the hillside. The big boar then buried himself in moss until only his head was visible. He was facing back down his trail, the trail that Luke and Josh would track him on. Luckily, they found the bear dead, but rigor mortis hadn't even set in yet. The wounded bear had waited in ambush for most of the night before succumbing to his wounds.
