You’ve Never Seen a Black Bear Fight Like This One in Saskatchewan

You've Never Seen A Black Bear Fight Like This One In Saskatchewan

This hunter had a front-row seat for the black bear fight of the century during his hunt in Saskatchewan. You won’t believe how it ends.

Bear Hunting Magazine Editor Clay Newcomb and his friends Mark and Ryan got a whole lot more than they bargained for on their spring bear hunt in Saskatchewan.

Newcomb shot a big, color-phase bear with his recurve bow after it tried to climb into the blind with him. While that was going on, Ryan got to see an incredible black bear fight unfold in front of him. A sow came in with her cub and didn’t appreciate it when a big boar tried to run her off the bait. 

The sow sent her cub up a tree and then started brawling with the much bigger boar. You’re going to want to see how all of this went down for yourself. Make sure you keep watching after the shot, too.

Was that incredible or what!? And to think that happened while Clay was having a crazy hunt for himself only a few miles away.

That sow must have been really ticked off if she wanted to keep fighting that long after the boar was dead. She didn’t leave even after she realized a hunter was there. Only some of Ryan’s bear spray would scare her off.

As the saying goes, the size of the fight in the dog (or bear) is more important than the size of the dog in the fight. That sow clearly had plenty of fight in her.
