Thanks again for the kind remarks guys, glad you enjoyed the story. I plan to write more. I recently had my first article published in Sports Afield about a bad run in with a couple brown bears.

We had a similar encounter this fall hunting elk. We didn't have a dog for early warning, but still managed to survive. Grizzlies are at the top of the food chain and pay little attention to the hunter regardless of his protection. There are still some big bears in the lower 48...




There is a 6 point bull elk dwarfed by that bear
