    Yea, I would've shot that bear too. Nice bear, not huge but nice.

    Cool video.

    A friend sent it to me. Nice footage, nice bear. Interesting response from the bear. I've had the need to talk to 2 of them in the past, one that wanted to come up to visit (or eat my candy bar) and another that decided my coat which I had just dropped over the edge as I prepared to leave was manna from heaven. They are fun animals to watch, that's for sure.

    +1. That's some good footage. Thanks for posting this video; I placed it in another thread but the link I had was removed from YouTube.

    Neat video. I'm wondering if this guy was hunting or just filming? I had a similar situation and actually had a hand on my 44 (since I can't shoot my bow straight down)...but he climbed down and went to my bait...then I used my bow.

    This is the main reason I don't like ladder stands for bear hunting. The bear could've easily pulled the blind out from under this guy leaving him hanging there like fruit on a tree.
