Howdy! I would really like to hear some of your "close call" experiences regarding bear charges/maulings/attacks. Please don't hold back on the details if you don't mind. live and learn no doubt.
I would like to read about what went wrong and what could have prevented the encounter.
My wife and I are moving to Alaska in a couple of weeks...so, if you don't mind...educate and scare the Blue Twinkies out of me.
