A New B.C. King is Crowned

When he hit 20 yards, Spike hissed several times, hoping he would stop and turn broadside as the other bear had done just 10 minutes earlier. However, this bear did not stop. As he came straight at us, I felt tremendous anxiety about finding shot placement. I dreaded a frontal shot on a 900-pound grizzly bear. But alternatives were quickly evaporating. When he hit about 15 yards I heard Spike say, “Okay!” And his tone was clear. The urgency in his voice screamed, okay already, shoot now! Before I have to. We were past the point of no return. That bear knew we were there and he was not stopping – it was either an arrow or a bullet.
