Species Identification Confidence:
Probably. I'm a bit uncertain
My son and I were hunting in the North Fork Rainey Creek area and heard a shot from a hand gun followed by a person yelling "a bear, a f____ing bear". The yelling continued, but we could not understand what was being said. We hiked down the ridge we were on and up the other side as fast as we could. When we were 3/4 of the way up I yelled to the person, asking if they were all right, but received no response. After a long hike out we got back to the truck to our cell phone and called 911 and gave them the coordinates of where we think we last heard the person. I don't know if it was a grizzly, but it was obviously an aggressive bear.
