I've listen to many comments about the Katmai brown bear video. I've read the same things from Mr. Whittshirk in his letters to the editor but this was a little over the top.
Should we only hunt scared animals while walking with homemade weapons? While I have not seen the Katmai video I do know that somtimes brown bears are not at all afraid of people while also not being agressive. I killed a brown bear this year while moose hunting. This bear walked in front of us (75 yards) while my partner and I were walking and talking. It should be noted that I was in the interior no where near a salmon stream.
