I was reading Arthur’s blog today, Simply Outdoors, and came across a stunning video.  The Easton team responded quickly and it ended good but the thought of a mother brown bear coming after you, getting just 8 feet away is shocking.  Just another reminder to be safe out in the woods, you never know when and, as this video shows, how fast a situation can change from quiet to deadly.
