If you’ve ever hunted in grizzly territory you’ve undoubtedly thought about what you would do if confronted by a bear, if it had staked out your elk quarters when you went in to retrieve them. That was the scenario for me a couple of weeks ago when we returned to the site of my friend’s bull elk kill. Nearby we had hung the front shoulders, unable to pack out on our backs the entire elk in a single trip. Bear spray at the ready, hollering as we got near, I had to wonder: would I cower if confronted by a grizzly, drop to the ground and cover my neck, boldly deploy my bear spray? And would the scenario change if the bear attacked my hunting buddy?
