OMG I would have been shiating my pants. Amazing how fast that thing climbed the tree.

Thought that bear was gonna make that one guy squeal like a pig.

I don't think he was joking.

Damn, he stopped recording right when we were going to see a bear fight.

I dunno. The first part of that looked fake as all hell, but later it seemed a bit more believable. I just don't know what to trust on the Internet anymore :(

I want to cuddle with a black bear and be his best friend and go on adventures and maybe eat pancakes with him

I thought the first bear looked like a juvenile, and the second larger bear was the mother. I think he was just curious.

Yeah, that's kind of what it looked like to me too. It almost looked like it was disappointed when it got up there and just found two humans standing still. Like, "eh, you guys are kinda boring. I'm outty." And then mom comes back and he's in trouble for interacting with the humans.

At first I was like "why are they freaking out about a bear that just ran past them?" ... Then he panned over and the bear is all like "Oh Haiii".. Holy shiat..

Kudos to them for not shooting it, I can't say I would have shown such restraint.
 
2012-11-24 02:51:10 AM

me texan: For those who yet haven't figured it out, the first bear filmed didn't climb the tree, it chased a second bear away from a food source. The second bear climbed a tree and then decided it didnt like it's chances with the hunters either. The last shot is the first bear once again chasing the second bear.

With a bow and arrow? A bear? With a mother nearby? Are you daft?

Hey,tough guy hunters, there's two of you and you have pointy sticks with you, it's not a really big bear, why didn't you grab it? Oh, that's right, it's not fair if the hunter might get hurt....

I believe all hunters are daft.

This juveline was hiding from the big male, and sounded like he returned to the tree tops right after he got down from the hunters cache.

This is what its looks like to me.

You can actually use the same bow setup that you use for deer hunting on a Black Bear...

They should give the animals guns to make it even.

I think they were bow hunting, so that would have been a bit awkward. If they were about to get attacked, I think their best move would have been to shove/kick the motherfarker out of the tree. It probably would have broken something/died on impact. Glad it worked out for all parties. For some reason I really like bears.

Unless you're a vegetarian, seriously, STFU. IF you are, great. If not, please remember that the hamburger you ate had a worse life than anything these guys kill.


Also, that was a black bear. If I remember correctly, Black bears tend to be pretty timid. Had it been a brown bear, well, that's much scarier. Had it been a grizzly, they would have both been dead.

Sometime when you get a chance, read one of the guides about what to do when you encounter a bear in the wild. I read it and get scared. It's essentially "Identify what sort of bear. Please remember if you are wrong we will be pulling chunks of you from the bears stomach to identify you. If it's a black bear, stand tall and make noise. It will run away. IF it's a brown bear, back off slowly and use bear spray if it gets close. If it's a grizzly, might as well try to kick it in the balls or stab it in the neck, because fighting is your only chance, and well, it's not much of one"

On another note, does anyone remember the girl who managed to call her mom while a bear was mauling her? Her mother had to listen to the bear disembowel her daughter. That's the sort of stuff that haunts my nightmares.

I believe the polar bear advice is 1) don't be seen 2) be armed. If you're see and you're unarmed, pray.

Polar bears and a few Grizzlys excepted, all North American bears are pretty timid. The best advice for not getting mauled by a bear is don't sneak up on it. Most attacks in the wild come when a bear is surprised by humans - often hunters in camo acting stealthy - and feels it needs to stand it's ground. Even grizzlys, for the most part, will avoid you if they know you're around before you get too close.

Also, respect that nature is dangerous. Don't think that just because it's only a black bear it's not thinking it might want to tear you up. Plenty of people die from black bear attacks. In fact, hungry black bears are often more likely to prey on humans for food than grizzlys -- e.g., three teens hunted and killed by a black bear in Ontario

Their camoflage worked perfectly. The bear never even saw them.
 
2012-11-24 01:59:26 PM
I don't understand why the first hunter was smiling in the beginning, and there was laughing too. That high up--this is a life or death situation. Armed to the teeth, I'd be yelling and screaming and firing away. 

I did like the surprise ending with bonus bear chase.

If you're hunting for food, more power to you...
If you're hunting for fur, hides to sell or keep warm, that's fine too.
If you're hunting for revenge because a bear ate your momma, you're a little psycho, but do what you've gotta do.
But if you're killing innocent animals, just to feel tough and have fun, you're almost as bad as Michael Vick and you're a pussy.
If you want call it a sport, make it a sport, have an actual competition...Try to use a katana to take on a Grizzly. Hell, use two katanas if you're talented enough....

I hunt cute bunnies. I use a 308 winchester magnum and then sprinkle the corpse with arsenic just to ensure that it is completely useless for food. Hopefully some other animal munches on it and dies too.

I do this all for you. You are welcome.

I hunt out of disgust for savage beasts and an overwhelming desire to reenact what happened to the Buffalo.

Camo has advanced far since the days you had to smother yourself in mud to be invisible to predators in trees.

Smiling is a primeval form of showing fear. I was not surprised at all to see that.

For all the ignoramuses who think they didn't shoot the bear because they were afraid or that their arrows wouldn't be effective...

They didn't shoot the bear because they probably don't have tags for it. Contrary to popular belief, you can't just yell "it's coming right at us!" and fire away. If it's an absolute emergency you do what you must, but expect to be grilled, sat in the pokey for a day or two, pay fines, pay to have the bear examined, have your weapon confiscated... a whole range of unpleasant stuff. There is also the fact that many hunters are quite ethical and will not recklessly kill animals. After all, they have paid substantially for the privilege as well as probably contributed to the upkeep of the park. Hunting is a tradition as much as a sport.

And when the bear was right up with them... yep, you guessed correctly, shooting a bear at that distance... better hope you get an instant heart kill. Not to mention you have another one that can quite easily be up there with you in about two seconds.

Some people would say that you should yell and scare off the bear to begin with, and that letting it get curious is a dangerous thing. I don't know. but i'm glad it turned out ok for everyone.
