This was my closest call with a brown bear while living up there. It came to us four different times and even stole a salmon right out of the boat. The last time it came out it decided it wanted a bigger meal and charged me. My partner had to put it down at about eight feet from us with his 45/70. I had my rifle trained on the bear as well. A few minutes later and it was all said and done. The young male was only squared about 7ft but the real kicker was what we found when we cleaned him. He was eat up with tape worms. Poor guy was probably starving!! My buddy hadn't used his tag for the year so we didn't have to turn the bear over to the authorities. He ended up doing a full body mount of the bear and it turned out fantastic.
