I have found that a horse can be a grizzly early warning device, unfortunately they tend to leave you in a pile to distract the griz from themselves.

Re: hypothectical bear trouble while cleaning a elk

A buddy and I where riding out of the high country and rounded a tight corner. Yards away was a gbear, and HE TOOK off up the mountain, but it was so close my friend was doing the funky buck and my horse was monkey see monkey do. We both stayed in the saddle, but usually ride with a handgun for that reason, if we get separated from horse and half to walk out

Re: hypothectical bear trouble while cleaning a elk

1. Carry a frying pan, cook up as much elk as you can eat.
2. Hand gun is a good plan. i carry one while bow hunting.
3. Make camp there for the night, build a substantual fire.
4. carry out what you can. hoist the rest up a tree with a rope.
you should have the roap with you anyway.
Piss all around the base of the tree.
5. you should be hunting with a buddy anyway, so make him help carry.
6. 300 yard jaunts then return for the rest.
7. Shoot the bear. here again use the frying pan & eat what you can.

I don't believe it's the smell of blood, but rather this is your answer:

Truer words were never spoken. I really do believe that 99% of us wouldn't have time to draw, let alone get off a lethal shot on an attacking bear. It would seem that an animal that is that big would not or could not be that fast, but they can run down a horse if that gives you any sort of comparison for what speeds they are capable of.

You could try what this guy does, but I'm thinking he's got balls of steel:

YouTube - Man talks his way out of bear attack

Check out this video, in less than 3 seconds of time being elapsed the bear is on you: http://www.udap.com/video/Bear%20Attack.wmv

Re: hypothectical bear trouble while cleaning a elk

My wife and I HAVE THIS ARGUMENT ALL THE TIME. Spray vrs. firearm. This is paper work she gave me, here father has logged thousands of miles in local park and stopped G bears w/spray.Study by TOM Smith, Efficancy of bear spray in AK, 72 CASES spray to defend, 92% stopped, 98% uninjured. 1992 USFWS STUDY, 50% of the time injury when defending with firearm, spray shorter duration of attack. ME, I SHOT AS a member on 2 state champ pistol teams, I CARRY my 44 in a low slung, old west style,gunfitter set up, my son Packs bear spray and a pistol. I bow hunt all fall the last 2, and spring bear in grizz area. I am on point, agreement with son, if bear gets me, shoot him, but be extra careful not to hit me
