Did anyone else see Cabelas "Memories in the Field" hunting program with the peninsula brown bear hunt that resulted in the killing of a sow with a cub?

The show highlighted a successful boar kill and then the action went awry when a large and determined sow appeared and charged the hunters at the very site the boar was shot. The bear was at 8 yards and closing when the yelling and waving hunters put her down. It was intense to say the least.

The show concluded with a note saying the killing was investigated by the Alaska Fish and Game and was deemed justified. As a viewer of the program it looked justified to me as well. I think this is the first "dlp" situation I've seen on film. Surely the hunters were thankful to have the event on film as it certainly helped resolve the redtape involved.
The mindboggling thing about the footage is that the cameraman actually got all the action as the bear closed on all of them, he probably had a mess in his shorts shortly afterward....

Yeah I saw that it was awsome but sad at the same time. Things like that you just hate to see have to happen but I think to anyone watching it had to happen. I know I would have needed a new pair of shorts and then some!!

This was clearly an intense moment, I could see the guide was upset that he was forced to put down the sow. They had no idea this sow and cub were even in the area. The bear was determined to attack. I was pleased to see the disclamer at the end indicating this was an act of self defense. This was an amazing outdoor moment captured on film.

The footage was a great example of how things can get exciting in a real hurry! Pretty awesome clip to say the least. The moose he bags was a real dandy too!

Warning shot?

Warning shot?

I saw this and it was very enlightening. I only wonder if a warning shot in front of her just as she started coming toward the hunters might have prevented the DLP shot. I realize there is a lot happening in just a few seconds, and you have to stand your ground. But that is the question I had.

Did anyone else notice that the hunter sort of faded from view as the sow got closer?

My experience is that warning shots simply don't work. I sent a 270 grain 375 about an inch over the head of a PO'd Kodiak sow from about 30 yards and she didn't so much as flinch. She left when she made up her mind to do it, and I had nothing to say about it.

"Did anyone else notice that the hunter sort of faded from view as the sow got closer?"

I probably put more thought into picking my hunting partners than I did picking my wife. She's lasted almost 4 decades, but only a hand full of hunting partners get invited back for a second trip.

Kinda looked to me like the guide might have pushed the hunter back or at least told him to get back... I don't know. I do know that that is the type of guy I want to hunt with in that scenario... The guide, that is.

I don't think a warning shot would have disrupted her path one bit. She was trucking right at those guys.

Show details...

Show details...

I think this was Cabelas "Memories in the Field" with Dave Watson. They probably have a website and may have a link to order various episodes...This one is worth having in a video library.
The guide was affiliated with "Alaska Knives" or something to that affect? Ring a bell with anybody?

I had gone on the Outdoor Channel trying to find out when this episode may air again and had no luck. If anyone sees a preview or anything stating when they may air it again could you let everyone know? I'd sure like to see it! Eric

I taped this episode on our DVR machine. I will check when it aired and see if there is anyway to transfer it to tape or something.

Wow, thanks for the link ak. That's pretty intense footage. I think the hunter disappeared because he was running for his bow!

Man!, that's something. Hats off to the guide. Isn't it unusual for a sow with cubs to be that close to a boar?

Loaded my shorts just watching it.

Unbelievable!!!

Watching clips like this makes wonder how many of the tall tales I hear around the campfire are not actually that tall but accounts of the truth.

And the guide waited for the last possible moment to shoot if you look at where the guide was standing when you last see him and where the bear is at when she peaks that little knoll just before getting shot.

Kudos for the guide. Sorry for the cub, but that is life in the wild.

Fumbling hunter

Fumbling hunter

I saw it also. Man, that was really something alright. Did anyone notice how much the hunter was fumbling with his rifle when he shot the boar? The guide said "hit him again" and he was fumbling around. It looked like he picked up his empty hull or maybe he kicked out a live one? The guide looked to me like he really steped up to the plate and did all he could do.
