Too dangerous to run. I did that once after a large black bear charged me. I was able to stop the charge, and back away out of sight. I then tried running to get farther away, but he was on my heels in seconds. I went totally ape on him, smashing a large stick on the branches and trees, to get him to stop again. He followed 20-30 feet behind me for the mile walk back to the truck. I could have filled everyone's cards that day, if I had had my camera.

A few of other bears...

Shot in Yellowstone in June 2014 on the road to the Roosevelt Lodge Cabins. Range was about 55 yards. She was very tolerant of the gathering that had formed and showed no aggression to anybody (except the fawn). This is the bear that later was referred to as the "Rainy Lake" sow. She was known to hang out in the Rainy Lake / Calcite Spring area. Spent about an hour shooting her and then the cubs playing after they had had their fill.

Two more shots from this past summer. A black bear sow with two cinnamon cubs. We had heard they were hanging out around Slough Creek, so we drove down and saw them 200-300 yards ahead of us. We stopped (it's a small unpaved road to a remote campground) and watched. They just kept walking toward us. I was shooting with everything I had. If it wasn't for the 200-400 EXT, I wouldn't have that shot of the cub. He was standing within 40 feet of our truck as I was shooting through the sunroof. We just watched them walk past, across the road and down to the creek....

Well this one doesnt really count since we were on a boat, but I suppose the motor could have died but the captain had a .38 revolver for just in case-

Nice One ,,I like it. When I think .38 I think small pistol round. I don't think I would ever feel safe behind a .38 so this counts lol

I've seen bears in Yellowstone years ago when they were allowed to roam around... and one grizzly from a looooooong distance in Glacier National Park. I wasn't into wildlife photography back then.

I think I'd like the adrenalin rush and the elevated heart rate...... at least, I like to think I would. I'd get some photographs, for sure. I'm quite a bit less sure that I'd get any as nice as all the ones posted here. I've enjoyed them all.

Maybe thats it,..The rush of being in proximity of wild game.

Do these answer your question?

That said, those were taken with 3+ people with me. If I were alone or with just one other person, I would photograph as I slowly withdrew to a safer distance.
