Backcountry Grizzly Attack

Backcountry Grizzly Attack

Ron Leming Jr. and his Dad survived a harrowing bowhunt for elk. Instead of a trophy bull, the duo encountered a huge boar grizzly bear.

I can't believe the couple of peoiple sdaying this is not a big bear. In one aspect it is not huge, BUT it was not long ago that a 200 lbs black bear killed three people at Liard Hot springs, so it does not have to be huge to cause damage and kill you

I agree with turkey777! Good thing it was the bear and not you!!! That must have been really scary! Do you hunt bears? Me and my Dad hunt bears, we missed a good sized black bear last year and that whole time we where looking for it you would hear a snap of a branch and you would freeze... that hair on the back of your neck would stand up and your heart would start to pound and you would raise your rifle just in case. But Dad and I are almost sure tha I missed. But then my confidence was boosted with a blacktail spike that is now mounted in our den! My first deer!!!

a 500 pound bear isn't big enough for you eating on your arm? are you serious? Have you ever been face to face with a 500 pound bear? It's plenty big enough for me! and I am 260#"s!

Now thats a awsome storie!!! Allways love your parents never know when they might not be there to save you. All three of you are great warriors that crossed paths. Just the way the world turns glad you came out alive and with all your body parts.

It's good you're OK, but running from any bear, even during a charge, is a bad idea. Most bears veer away. Even a can of pepper spray could very well have deterred it--you can fire it from its holster. And I don't mean to be insulting, but it's really not a "huge" bear, although I'm sure it seemed plenty big enough.

You can't carry a side-arm bow hunting, in most states. Frankly, he did everything you should do, except play dead. Which in this case may not have worked!

My best advice would be to always carry a .44 Mag. when in bear country. Wow! What a night mare!
