My last trip to Montana in 2003 my guide started carrying after we “ran into” a black bear that had buried an elk carcass in the area we were hunting. We also talked to some loggers who had an encounter with a grumpy bear in the area. The bear had treed one of the loggers. During the trip we had several encounters with the bear one of them before daylight.

The elk had been killed by another hunter not the bear.
