Re: Ultra short range Grizzly hunting!!

Northern Sniper,

I first thought that the Bear probably went for the rifle shooter after he was shot with the rifle.

The bow hunter was saying it broke the charge on him and turned to the rifle shooter.....THEN the rifleman shot him.

That did not make sense to me at first, but I watched the video again....

My theory is that the rifleman was either with or behind the cameraman and both behind mr. bow. The bear charged the bow hunter and went for the rifleman after being turned by the last arrow. I listened to the words, the bow hunter says "don't shoot, I got a good arrow in him." Then the rifleman says "I'm sorry, but he charged me, he was 2 yards, only 2 1/2 steps away when I shot!"

He didn't say " I thought your were going to die *******" he says he was defending himself.

Maybe he would have died from the arrow, maybe not. BUT, even with that "fatal" arrow and 2 shots he still seemed to run a bit. He wasn't dead in front of them. One of them says "there he is down there" or something to that effect.

The reason I think they are idiots is they seemed to be unprepared and uninformed.
If I was bowhunting grizz, I'd have a pistol (or 2)on my hip.
