Got any links to videos of Grizzly Attacks you want to post? Great! In particular, I'm looking for that one Video of an Alaskan(?) Hunter Guide riding down a river in a boat, when he sees a cub and suddenly momma bear is IN HIS FACE. He very quickly draws and fires before momma can bite. It appears the shot into the water scared off the enraged bruin.

Anything else you want to share is fair game, but I'm looking for that video.

He's lucky the bear turned away because at that speed I'm not sure he would have had a chance to take a second shot. Choosing to fire in front of the bear worked out well for him that time but IMO what he did was very dangerous. I'm glad the 3 cubs were not left without a mother but his children could have been left without a father. (and he was also choosing for the other 3 with him including the camera man)

Crazy. That guy has nerves of steel if he really was just firing a warning shot. How close do you let it get before you start firing for effect?

He very quickly draws and fires He was amazingly quick with that shot, but it did look like the handgun was already drawn before the sow charged.

Here is another impressive video of a brown bear charge:

"He was amazingly quick with that shot, but it did look like the handgun was already drawn before the sow charged."

We're always talking about "situational awareness" and that's a perfect example. He knew with the cubs in plain sight the sow was in close proximity and was prepared for the situation to go south at the speed of light..... Excellent......

About a year ago, there was some video footage of this close call. I can't find the video, but I found a link that shows a couple of pictures of this incidence.

http://www.blackbearheaven.com/forest-ranger-attacked-grizzly-bear.htm

An adult male grizzly knocked the ranger off of the truck. The guy had a single action revolver chambered in .357 magnum. He dropped the bear dead in it's tracks with one or two shots. Shot placement is key. You don't need a cannon to get the job done if you hit the right spot. In this case, the bear wasn't charging, it was right next to the guy. Both the ranger and the bear ended up on the ground. The guy recovered first and got the shots off quickly while the bear was relatively stationary.

Based on the information from the link you provided, the ranger did not drop the bear or even shoot the bear. From the link...

Below is a young bear fitted with a radio collar because he proved to be a problem. The bear was being released but the bear has seemed to have lost its fear of humans and turned and attached the forest ranger. If the bear heads back to the public areas of the park, it will most likely be destroyed.
