Yeah, I think your better off spraying yourself in the face while the bear is chewing on your leg. That way it will take away from some of the pain in the leg. HAHAHA

HAHAHA... I remember my first time in bear camp... Its a little uneasy feeling when you are sitting there in the dark for almost 2 hours before they get back to pick you up from your stand... All those sounds and darkness doesn't sit too well after you have seen a couple bears cruising around for the first time...

It's not nearly as bad as it sounds though... I have been up 3 times and it's a very laid back hunt and the bears don't bother you... At least until you shoot at them, then they aren't too happy.. Just make sure you put a good shot on them...haha

The only problem we have around here while bear hunting in the "PRIME COUNTRY" is wolves! A few years back during deer season we actually had a group of them fallow us back to camp! 2 mile walk with 4-6 wolves behind you at 30-50 yrds isn't fun either! We should be getting a hunting season for them soon now though!

na we're actually going into north carolina for black bear...a virginia concealed permit is affective there so we're going hunting on his grandfathers farm....i'm taking my new mathews with me as well as my .44....nice thought about the one bullet but if i'm going down i'm taking someone with me or atleast wounded. did any one ya'll read the article in north american hunting magazine i think, about the two guys going out hunting, one guy was comming down the hills and a black bear came running behind him. the guys grandfather was in the stand and as the guy ran by with the bear following the grand father shot the bear and as the bear caught the guy and landed on him the bear ran off 5 yards and died. the grand father shot the bear but the arrow did piece the heart until he jumped on the guy. the arrow broke and snapped into the heart. lucky guy only walked away with a scratch!

WOW... Talk about a good shot... Running bear with a bow... I did read a similar story last year about a situation out west with a bear... There were alot of photos floating around, I think it's' actually posted somewhere here on the site...

Pretty crazy though...

All you need to do is hunt with a buddy and be able to run faster then he or she. If your not faster then trip or push them down before taking off. HAHA

North Carolinia you say. Were bouts? I'm looking to make a trip to WV and N.C this coming fall for bear. Hyde County to be exact.

I was just thinking, Can you imagine sitting in the stand and watching your buddy run by you with a bear chasing him?

I'm trying to picture it now and it kind of reminds me of that scene in The Great Outdoors with John Candy. Big Bear Chase Me....HAHAHA

I'm not sure if I would shot first, laugh later or the opposite.

HA... I dont know about that... I think the rush would be far more then you could even imagine....... Would be funny to sit back and laugh after it all worked out well......

I just can't imagine having to make that shot on a running bear, that would be nuts.......
