Woooow that guy has nerves of steel. I would have started hollerin at that thing soon as it made eye contact with me. Props to him for not just shooting it, I've got a feeling alot of people would panic.

Haven't had one that close to me. I was on a sit and stock hunt in oct. Iwas in dence brush and heard something a head of me.started to move slowly towards the sound and what ever it was ran to beat hell away from me. My brother in-law was on a ridge and waving his arms like he was trying to take flight. When I finaly got to him, he said man you were about 45yrds from a big bear. I thought he was trying to get my goat. To prove it to me we went down there again. I hanvt seen a paw print that big in a long time. Now we're trying to get bear tags for that area. Also seen a huge moose that week. Never saw a single deer though.

Because I didn't walk into the stand, I didn't realize immediately that the bear was tracking the guy in the stand. But it was pretty obvious by the time the bear was about 10' from the ladder. I would have long since put the camera down, and grabbed my bow. I'd be happy with a photo trophy even if I was without a bear tag. Nail him on about the 2nd rung, certainly when he was sniffing the pine bough. Wouldn't think it likely I'd see a deer after having a bear stink up the area.

Nothing like going to your stand and finding Bear Chit in it ! Friend of mine in Alaska shot one that was coming in the stand with him.
Nothing like having a bear close enough to pet..Randy

I think I will call this guy "The Bear Whisperer....." - TWO STEPS AWAY - REALLY:mg:....... I think I may have had a few better words then - "Hey what are you doing there.....". Did you see the bear's face - almost as if he had the "oh crap" expression himself....

Had one start to climb my ladder a few years ago. He got all 4 paws on the ladder before I decided I should probably yell at him lol. He climbed back down and meandered away. They are just very curious animals.
