Cool now we have a photography section so we can share pics...

Here's a small bear me and my bro called in while deer hunting....He kept getting closer and closer and at 7 feet away we decided it was close enough :o so I yelled...He was kinda confused at this point and actually started to charge so I stood up fast and he turned tail and split..

Very Cool BuckSnort, I had one about the same size walk right up to me while archery hunting near Lake Almanor several years ago. I didn't notice at first that the little bear was blind. I had pulled an arrow out of my quiver to tap it on the nose if it came any closer. The wind was coming up the mountain as was the little bear, it was following a trail by smell, when I popped the arrow out of the quiver it heard the noise and hissed like a cat and turned tail and headed back down the trail. We saw it again that afternoon heading back up the mountain on the same trail, It's eyes were a pale blue. Keep the pictures coming, I love em. Brings back a lot of great memories.

Hey CC bears in the woods? I got your back. Kneedeep I agree and have had many close encounters that I would rather not have. Very cool pics though BuckSnort, I like the approach shots best, mine would be on departure......Jetspray

I know what you mean about the hissing...I have tree'd a couple small ones while bowhunting and one of them stayed in the tree just out of our reach and was hissing...I wish I had a camera that day...
