Ouch! But i do have a new idea for my upcoming bear hunt in NJ in Dec.....Time for a BBQ.:icon_mrgreen:

Seriously though I can't imagine sitting in my tree and having to punch a bear in the face to get him out of it. Amazing for sure. We have bear encounters ever single hunting trip in NJ and every single time they run away, well most every single time. And we are hunting mostly on the ground.

Thanks for sharing.

This is why not being allowed to carry a gun while bow hunting is ridiculous. A fisher cat could kill you, let alone a black bear.

The poor guy would have probably been scrutinized if had been able to shoot them with his bow becasue it wasn't bear season or it was illegal to hunt bear. Instead people should be praising his ability to keep him self alive and not panick. That is insane!

He should carry pepper spray!
