Props to all of them for not flinching/making noise. I don't know if I could have kept my cool....

Most of those charges are bluffs, plus, there is probably someone standing there with a can of pepper spray the size of a fire extinguisher. As for the .44, that would just piss him off.

I'll take that over climbing the tower................I think.

In either case, I'm soiling the derbs and I want a gun.

Default Bear charge

That doesn't look like much of a charge, scary as it looks and a .44 magnum likely wouldn't stop it in time if it were real. The guides out there usually carry .458 mags but seldom, if ever need them.

I'll never have to worry about what I would do in that situatuion.

I like the part where it says "he wasn't supposed to do that"....really, not supposed to? Does the bear know that?

I think they were all sitting still hoping that the bear would eat someone else first. Maybe 10 folks sitting there, so only a 10% chance of being the first one... wait and hope the first one fills him/her up!

It wouldn't pay to run, they will just eat you when you are tired.
