Hunter in Treestand is Joined by a Bear in Intense Close Encounter

This black bear was literally breathing down the neck of the bow hunter who was filming it.

The bear spotted the hunter and his partner in their treestand from below and quickly climbed up to check them out.

One of the hunters had his camera rolling the whole time, and it's a good thing he did. This is one of the most adrenaline-pumping bear hunt encounters we've ever seen.

But the action doesn't end with the standoff in the tree. This video has lots of action, including big black bears battling for dominance and an epic kill shot. Take a look.

Talk about close calls! That's one of those hunting memories that will be burned in these guys' memories.
