Hunting from a treestand is exciting, but how exciting is it when a large black bear decides to try and come up after you?
What an adrenaline rush!
I think that hunter would say that bear encounter was a little bit too close for comfort.
This treestand hunter has an eagle eye view of the surrounding land. He sees the big black bear come into his area, smelling everything it can find.
The bear appears to notice the hunter in the treestand and is very curious. Well, curiosity was not going to be satisfied from the ground, so with some mighty claw-gripping jumps it is up the tree directly under the hunter’s platform in three seconds flat.
Quick movements were enough for the hunter to scare off the bear but he had the excitement of a lifetime.
The hunter definitely had to catch his breath after that close call.
