If we could hunt them quite a bit (like in Alaska) they would fear people and stay away a lot more resulting in fewer attacks. Unfortunately that probably isn’t going to be permitted anywhere in the lower 48 any time soon.
I was watching "wardens" last night and it was going over a grizzly attack.
Some shed antler hunter had to shoot a bear in self defense. He got very lucky with that .44 magnum he has on his side. I believe he said he shot it 2 times actually. The second shot proved to be a solid hit.
I bet you he needed to change his underwear after that encounter. Of course the wardens pretty much demonized him for shooting the bear in a round about way....
Bystanders backed his story so they had to let accept what happened.
