Well I guess the first thing is I don't see them as "monsters". I am actually quite fond of grizzlies. I have tons of respect for them! Perhaps just enough fear. They are a part of my life. Just like avalanches, seracs, etc...

And yes, I guess I could be considered rather "cool headed". My life's experiences have taught me to be relaxed in situations like that. I have a hard time with "normal" day to day stuff though. That's the trade off .

    Hey Jeff, Not sure what you mean? Bison and moose? Oh is that it, monster gonads?

    Phorwath, I've had grizzlies in my personal space since then. Had a grizz on the Dogshead Creek trail in Yellowstone walk up to me and a friend. He sniffed her wrist and rubbed against my legs twice. Once in front and once in back. I've been bluff charged within 8' of me. The bears you deal with are bigger and more aggressive I think.

    Chris

    It is normally the case that our bears aren't acclimated to close human presence, let alone contact. Especially out where I'm in hunting camps. I have some experience with park bears that can get comfortable with human presence in the campgrounds. But any wild bear that approaches me that closely without that prior type of human acclimation goes to bear heaven. Something definitely wrong with such a bear in my mind. That black bear that stalked me..., I couldn't tell if he was curious, hungry, or what. I made a hasty move with my arm and rifle once in the effort to confront him. He just about bounded off, but then instead turned back and squared off with me, staring like a dog does just prior to a fight. This was in the mountains, a good 15 air miles from the nearest inhabited residence. That was enough of a display for me. Time for that bear to go. After all, I was hunting for black bear. One of the easiest bears I ever got. He actually found me rather than the other way around.

    It's a different deal here. We have a rapidly growing grizzly population in close proximity to a rapidly expanding human population. A black bear that close would worry me too. You just don't even see them unless you call them or bait them.
