Years ago, in my younger fearless days, I took off on a beautiful fall morning in search of a black bear. After several hours of glassing ridges I spotted a nice black. And the hunt was on. I climbed to the top of the ridge where the bear was and began my stock. What luck, a holding favorable breeze. After about 45 minutes I spotted a small alpine fir in front of me frantically swaying from side to side. There was my black, intent on destroying the tree. I decided to get closer, the breeze was still holding. At about 25 yards, I decided I was close enough, but I didn't have I good shot at the vitals. But I was confident. I readied my trusty 62 lb. bear takedown along with a razor sharp microflite 12. Then it happened, the breeze was no longer in my face. The bear was no longer taking his agression out on the fir. He was on his hinds, eyes glaring back at me. In an instant, gone was my vision of stalking the unsuspecting bear and delivering a precisely placed microflite 12. For a seemingly eternity the standoff wained on, and the bear seemed to be getting larger by the second. Finally the black turned and continued, for some reason, making his way down the ridge, I guess satified that the adrenalin rush he had adimistered to me would surely do me in. He was right. That hunt was over. For me, not shooting the bear, was far more memorable than had I put him down.
