Surviving A Bear Encounter. What You Absolutely Need To Know.

Todd Orr. You may have recently heard of this modern day Hugh Glass’s story on the news or via the internet.

Todd Orr, was scouting for Elk in Madison Valley, a southwest Montana area. He knows that this is bear country so as he’s moving along he’s yelling out, “hey bear!” about every 30 seconds to avoid surprising any bears near the trail.

About three miles in he steps out into an open meadow and yells again.

After a few more steps he spots a sow grizzly with her cubs. The sow sees him and at first they take off and run a short distance up the trail.

Unfortunately for Todd, the grizzly turns back and charges.
