Dude, late last fall me and a buddy of mine were fishing the same area. I headed back to the truck and when we met up he told me about seeing a bear about 20 yards above him in the woods. He turned around and there it was, just as suprised to see him as my buddy was. He said the bear made it's way back up into the woods after a brief pause and stare. Maybe it was the same one, maybe not, but we're glad you told us this. Next time I'm in that area I'll make it a point to be loud and to keep my head on a swivel.
May you fish more than you wish for.
