I would not trust any bear that made eye contact and still kept coming towards me. I believe you went beyond brave and crossed over to foolish. You have a wonderful memory of a close encounter though!
There have been several instances in western Canada where predatory black bears just walked up and started eating someone. It doesn't need to look like the kind of attack they stage for TV audiences. I'd have been closer to my rifle than my camera if in your place, but thank you very much for sharing the photos.

THAT, ...is way to subtle,

even for the likes of me.

My compliments on a well tuned and perspicacious sense of humor.

I also thought that was an apt comment.

I prefer "The only thing that you can predict about bears is that they're unpredictable." Years of up-close-and-personal acquaintance with grizzlies and brownies has seared that truth deep into my brain.


"Good enough" isn't.

Always take your responsibilities seriously but never yourself.

CASTNBLAST - "I would not trust any bear that made eye contact and still kept coming towards me."

Same here!!

In Idaho, if you are muzzleloader hunting or archery hunting, you can still legally carry a handgun. There are some big Black bears here... and some of them are not nearly so friendly as that bear in the photos.

Glad it all turned out for the good.
