When I took a picture of this bear, she was with her cub. I could of shot her all day, as she was like less than 10 feet away from me in a pear tree during the summer drought. I took pictures of her and her cub. This mama bear hissed at me sometimes as I was taking pictures of her. Here in the state New Mexico, bears usually run away from hunters during the bear hunt. But there is a true story of a bear breaking into an 90 year old lady's house in Mora NM, just a few years ago. The bear broke into the lady's house and killed her and started eating her flesh. The local residents quickly tracked down the bear and killed it.
Other than that, the bears run far away from hunters during bear season.
