    Story was covered in detail in 2016 –nevertheless it’s a good reminder “do not count on bear spray” if charged by a determined grizz.

    Story continued (from article above) – Alaskan hunter charged 2x by grizz, 24 years apart, saved by a .338 Win Mag & later by a Glock model 20 10 mm pistol

    ​^^ You seem to have an obsession with bear attacks. Any particular reason? ^^

    You find it offensive, but I find it funny... That’s why I’m happier than you.

    I think it's great advice about not laying flat and to curl up into a ball. I had a buddy get rolled over a couple times by a younger bear in lost dog canyon near Kimberly years ago, He was real lucky only coming out with some scratches on his arms.
    I feel more like i do now than i did before i got here

    Came to BC right after finishing high school in Ontario(1965) & never looked back. Immediately started working as a surveyor in the northern BC wilderness followed by months surveying in the remote Yukon wilderness living in tents.

    Always carried a mag. revolver for bear protection those days.
    Used to practice with it regularly hitting quickly plate size targets at various distances.

    Saw countless number of bears, mostly black but never had a problem until we were charged by a large grizz in July 2007 by Gaspard Creek while getting ready to fish.
    I let my guard down by leaving my 375 H&H hanging on the camper jack over 100 ft. away.
    We made plenty of loud noises setting the campsite but that didn’t deter the grizz from approach.
    Getting up quickly, waving our arms wildly & yelling at the top of our lungs is what saved us. The grizz changed his mind only feet away. When running from about 40 yards his huge head was way down & we could feel him running.
    Reported the encounter in detail to Gary Shelton ASAP & his conclusion was that it was a predatory bear.

    More encounters-here's a few
    One of the surveyors that worked for the same company in the 60’s was charged by a grizz near Hudson Hope while taking a drink from a mountain stream- killed it with a 44 mag. revolver. He was untouched.

    LT (LOVER308 ) & I, hunting partners since ’67 had more than a few bear encounters but were never charged. Remember meeting a large grizz by a freshly killed moose near Germanson Lake- The grizz quickly ran away from us. We were headed to a cabin not that far away. At night we placed a string with empty cans with rocks inside before the doorway but we never saw/heard the bear again.

    Over the years while hunting had more than a few encounters with bears, both black & grizz –some ran away quickly & some just stood & watched & trying to decide what to do but they slowly retreated.

    I find bears as truly fascinating & highly intelligent animals that can be extremely dangerous under certain circumstances.
    One must be prepared for the worst when in bear country.

    A properly loaded rifle/shotgun/revolver is a good option if allowed to carry in the woods. Being proficient with it is important.
    And forget about bear spray as a substitute for a gun.

    If that is all you’re allowed to carry then it’s better than nothing.
