Hunters In Tree Stand Meet Bear

My pants would have been officially pooped. Climbing a tree will NOT save you from a bear.

@CrakrJak,
I hope you found something else to keep you busy and happy. and to be sure. i really mean that.

i`ve handled scorpions, spiders, which was the biggest personal victory being a former arachnophobiac, but then living in oz kinda forces you to deal with that one :D and various deadly snakes (a red belly black snake was an amazing experience), had to deal with a small/medium (thank god) feral pig once. that scared the drat out of me, more then the snakes. there is a bunch of other potentialy deadly creatures i bumped into on my travels on this awsome planet. but had the good fortune of not having to handle those and walk/ swim away alive.

Grizzly can`t climb trees, they are too heavy. They just push them down.

Bears tend to climb trees only when they`re frightened. That little bear was obviously scared of the larger one and was chased up the tree only to discover a couple of hunters. It was probably effing terrified. That`d be like running from a rabid dog and locking yourself in a house full of zombies.

MrOrange: I`ve held a tarantula, a scorpion and killed a rattlesnake with a machete (then handled it). Not extremely dangerous perhaps, but all could`ve been hazardous. I`ve never been that close to a live bear, but then again I`ve handled a live hellbender, which is extremely rare (and which is no longer legal to do).

I`m not a big outdoors man now, because I`m disabled, but I would like to go deer or turkey hunting again.

I don`t consider it `unsporting` for mankind to use it`s brain to make tools to kill animals with. The guys that do it barehanded are just nuts.

They did the right thing, although I would have been tempted to have my 45 out and ready...

Ya a gun but I don`t point it at my head! Which is like like picking up something that you know is poisonous.

Native tribsemen would call that guy stupid and hand him a spear... or a bow like what they guys in the tree are using. Humans biggest advantage are their minds giving them the ability to make and use tools. Also to know how to hunt animals effectivly which by concidence means hiding in a tree waiting for prey something many animals also do. Thought dosen`t involve grabbing animals by their back getting them extremly pissed off. I`d like to see Steve Irwin Jr. try that on a bear.

i might not hunt for pleasure, and haven`t had to hunt for food yet, but on my treks though the ozzy bush (and just living there) i`ve handled plenty of critters that could and would have killed me. i wonder if you ever held anything in your hand that could have killed you?

you confused two differnt things there. Hunting not bieng easy is differnt from 2 guy`s pretending to be hunters up on a platform way out of harms way playing target practice.

Despite the dancing bit, this is more of a man then those two gamers ever will be.

real man

Those guy`s

Your own words, nothing much to assume there. If you had ever hunted you wouldn`t have made such an asinine statement.

Something that dangerous shouldn`t be allowed to be that cute.

Thank you for making my point. you legend!

As for it bieng easy i never said it was. that part was you reading something in my words that wasn`t there. (i`d call that an assumption but i`m sure there is a better word for it)

You`d never make it in the wild.


Advice for the bow hunters sell the camera and buy a .44 incase Mr. Bear thinks you look tasty next time.

I tend to agree with @Crakr on this one. If we were meant to fight hand-to-hand with animals we would have evolved better physical attributes. Instead we developed a better brain. Now whether sitting in a tree blind and shooting an animal many yards away that you have possibly baited is considered "sport" is another question entirely, because I don`t believe it is; at that point it`s basically just target practice.

You try it first.

There is a damn good reason we have tools such as guns and bows, a few are to keep us safe and alive from animals like these. I`m betting you`ve never hunted for you own food, because you seem to believe it`s easy. I can attest to you that it`s not.

You call yourself `more of a man` than these hunters. What you really are is a citified wuss that wouldn`t make it an hour in the woods or a hunter`s blind.

I would have shat and pissed myself, screamed like a little girl and probably fainted. And still consider myself more off a man then those two, there is no honour or glory in shooting an animal from a huge distance, hiding, and up in a tree. Be a Real Man, kill it with your bare hands.

I wonder if you shat yourself, would that make the bear more or less likely to eat you?

There is a lesson here, though: even if you`re bow hunting, if you`re going into the woods, take a f***ing gun!

Saw bears up close in Alaska recently. They are incredibly beautiful & scary as f*ck.

Those black bears don`t get so big. They are mainly insect and plant eaters. One in pain or sick or cornered is nothing I`d want to face but for the most part they want little to do with humans. Unlike Steven Colbert`s threat-down that includes bears, people that encounter them know that the generic term "bear" encompasses a wide range of organisms. Black bears are arguably on the bottom of the threat meter.

That looked pretty GRIZZLEY. If you look down you might lose your BEARings. I thought when the bear ran up the tree PANDAmonium would ensue, FURtinately, they survived.

Side note: I`d like to see them BEAR assed. The one with the BEARd and the CUB were both BEARy cute.

Okay, I`ll put these puns on PAWs......for now.

It`s just a black bear. If they had farted it probably would have fell out of the tree.
