I didn’t shoot the bear for three reasons. First, until next year, shooting grizzlies over bait in that area is illegal unless it’s in defense of life. Second, I had already killed a brown bear this year, so I would not have been able to kill it even if baiting it was legal. And lastly, the bear wasn’t being aggressive. It obviously didn’t realize I was there, and didn’t give me any justification for shooting it in self defense. It’s a very fine line because they move extremely fast, but I was fairly confident that he wouldn’t become aggressive, and I was as prepared as I could be to deal with him if he did. Anyway, it was quite a cool and exciting encounter, and I hope you enjoy the video!
