    Talking I got charged

    Heres the story. I was trout fishing near Hoonah. There were some cabins in the area and 2 labs from a nearby cabin had been hanging with me most of the afternoon. I had a fish on the beach and I was upwind from the bears. At first I was like cool 2 bears make a video and take some pics. But they were make a beeline right at me kind of in trot. So I dropped the fishing pole and had a can of spray in my left hand and my 44 mag in the right. Then the dogs saw the bears and charged the bears. Then the bears got real serios and countercharged. I had no where to go cuz the creek was to deep to cross where I was at and it was solid brush in front of me. As it was I went out to my waist to get some room between me and the brush. Then they jumped into the brush about 30yards from me. I siezed tthe moment and hightailed it downstream were the bears came from got down wind. Then I had 300 yards of chest high grass to get thru to get back to the truck. I kept cool though and didnt freek out till after getting back to the truck.

    Yeah they might have been 3 years old or so? Very unpredictable. Im sure they were siblings. By the way they got the fish.

    Your video does crack me up though...."Here I am out fishing, I've got 2 Brown bears coming up the creek at me, well I dont know what to do, so I'm turning the camera off now."

    Glad your Ok though!

    Default Good Video....

    Mag,
    couldn't you have just put the camera in your mouth to continue the footage?

    I can see it now...spray in one hand, pistol in the other, camera wedged between clenched teeth.....and walking backward through the tall grass to capture it all on video.....

    Glad all's well that ends well
