Grizzly in Camp
Well here's one other story, this one about a Grizzly Bear in Camp!
This year I went moose hunting for the early season August 15th.
So anyways I had met these guy's a few years earlier from Kamloops; Stan, Dan and Randy. Dan and Randy being brothers.
So any ways after getting off the highway, I stopped to check out the trailer I was hauling, and get a couple of beer for the last two beer ride in to the end of the road.
So two thirds of the way in I stopped to talk to a gas worker working one of the gas pipe line pumping stations. After a minute he says hey what do ya got cooking in your trailer. Well I looked at him as to say smoke. Well as I looked up I seen a puff of smoke. Well I said fire and went to see what's up.
I lost everything but my bike, and you can believe there's a lot more to say but I'm not going into details. It was a mess.
So anyways I met the guys there and managed to borrow a tarp to make at tent. So August 14th I've got my camp set up. Off to bed, 4:30 rolls around and I'm lying there and I'm still sleeping but just lightly.
All of a sudden I hear snap and I woke up! I'm lying on my back on an army cot and I could hear a grizzly bear in camp... right next to my head... no more than a foot away!
So I'm almost having a fit so I thought for a second, "What do you do Danny?"
So I said to myself, "Give him a left hook to the yap", POW
I hit him right on the end of the nose!
Well he never seen that coming and took off like a rocket and as I was out of bed in a flash.
You could hear him running so fast I'm sure he pooped himself.
Anyways, I never seen him again.
But when I got back to work one guy wanted to go hunting in my spot so I said okay. I gave him the spot to go in at.
When he came back from hunting he said someone had shot a big grizzly in camp.
I said, "Oh?" Well I never seen him, AND THAT'S THE ONLY GRIZZLY BEAR IN CAMP I'VE EVER SEEN IN 18 YEARS. In that area there's lots of bears, but until then I have had no problem at all with bears.
I've seen enough to give ya gray hair.
