Sure glad he is alright and made it out, I alway hunt with a second person even while dressing a animal out my partner or I stand guard for any kind of bear advance, you just cannot be complacent while in the back country as while we are there we are not at the top of the food chain.
Yes Sir! That is how I have always and will continue to approach a kill site. It is a shame that he had to be reminded of that neccessity in such a traumatic fashion. Once again, hats off to those who saved this man, he is extremely fortunate! Best wishes Mr, Tuttle."I am partly to blame. I got complacent, and I paid for it," he said. "I guess I should have had a gun in my hand, safety off, ready to shoot."

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.
Thanks AGL4now. I got charged this year too hiking down by skilak lake fortunately it turned into a bluff charge once the cubs scampered into the woods behind her but it felt like the real thing was going down the way she came at me. I''m blaming myself though usually I make enough noise to warn them to step out of the way but I was close to the turnaround part of the trail (Hidden Creek Trail) and was too quiet too soon.
Wow, he is lucky!!
I have such a hard time trying to decide which outdoor activity to do every chance I get!! Living in AK is a mental challenge
I happened to meet one of the PJ's that helped save him at my kids school the other day, he said the guy was stable but was in bad need of a serious serving of antibiotic which they had and gave to him. Told me that guy was lucky as the weather was absolute crap.

Those rescuers deserve a great deal of respect.
