Check Out This Spooky Brown Bear Encounter Jim Burnworth Just Had On Kodiak Island

Jim Burnworth’s brown bear encounter on Kodiak Island got a little dicey.

Jim Burnworth recently had a brown bear encounter after he killed a Sitka Blacktail deer with his bow that got a little spooky. That bear was acting like it really wanted his deer and unfortunately for Jim, he was only armed with his bow and some bear spray at the time.

Watch the video to see what happened.

It’s not unusual to hear about bears approaching a hunter’s kill and trying to steal it. This is especially common in areas with lots of bears, like Kodiak Island.

Events like this one are a good reminder to carry bear spray and a good bear defense gun whenever you are out in bear country.
