Wow! Wow! What are the odds of a deer busting out of the brush and running into your horse. Then, what are the odds of a grizzly being right on the tail of that deer. Then, what are the odds that the grizzly takes off after the one young guy in the group. And finally, what are the odds that she gets the horse to follow her command, and the bear actually gives up.
She said one in a million, but I bet figuring all those odds in, it's way, way higher!
Great story with a great ending. I worke up in this area when I was a kid on another guest ranch and seeing bears was not a rare occurence in the daily lif of the ranch. Most of them were blacks for sure but the occasional grizzly was spotted and always made you a little nervous because of thier reputation. Especially for a 17 year old kid.
Moose calling can get confusing to some, but cow calling is your main tool when moose hunting. If you go out and buy moose calls I would say you're wasting your money unless it is the birch bark cone. I find most store bought moose calls sounding worse than puffing a grunt your hands to make the call. You can roll up a piece of birch bark in a cone shape to use as a call and spend your money on a video that teaches you the basics of a cow call. A milk jug or a coffee can with a hole and a rope...
