    Default Close encounter at the bear bait

    You know youve made a bad decision when you walk into your previously unhit bearbait to check and run into a large grizz, at under 20 yards. Making matters worse is that the only weapon your carring is a bag of alpo and a gallon jug of oil and anise. Makes you want to kick your partner in the knee dont it?

    Been there before, but always with a handgun in hand!
    I drop the bait about 100 yds from the ststion & then check out the bait carefully for lingering visitors. Then I get the bait & bait up with gun at hand at all times (and head rotating 360* since I hunt alone).

    Let's here the rest of the story!!!

    While driving to my bait stand I always have it run through my head, is a grizz going to be defending "MY" bait site? I have had a few grizz for the past couple yaers, with no problems. I hope to keep it that way. I will say that my heart rate goes up to about double and my head is on a swivel while walking into the stand. Once I get in the stand all is normal untill a twig snaps, and then the heart goes up again. God I love that rush. When I stop getting it, I will be giving away my guns or pushing up daisies.

    I assume the bear turned and ran, due to you posting this. What did the partner do?

    The bear turned and left,,,,,I thought. Then he did a 180 and came back in on us. We did a orderly retreat and let old sloughfoot have the bait. 20 yards is to close in the thick stuff for my taste. Darn bear trashed my last beaver as well.
