what to do if bear walks up on you?

i can understand where you are coming from wanting advise on how other hunters would a proach this but i always carrie a pistol just incase of this or any other animals sneeking up on me and my rifle is messed up. other than carrie a pistol they do have bear spray witch would give you a couple mins to get away. glad you made it home safe.
