Starting from a good vantage point, Nicole says they glassed and saw a lot of bears before spotting the one she would be pursuing. When brown bear hunting, you really only get one chance, she says, because once you leave your spotting location you lose your visual of the bear. Nicole tells Jim and Trav from that point, it was all about guessing the bear’s next move and out maneuvering him. With the help of her guides, Nicole says they traversed challenging swampy terrain and ultimately came out at the right time and place to ambush the bear. Being up close and personal with a huge bear can be intimidating for anyone, especially when your weapon of choice is a bow. However, Nicole says there really wasn’t time to be nervous, at only 15 steps away she knew that a well-placed shot and the fact that she only got one chance, kept her focused. Tune in to hear Nicole’s story where she’ll also talk about the challenge of hunting remote locations.
