    I've shot about twenty bears IMT. The meat makes get sausage mixed with venison/canada goose!
    Skin out a bear. It looks exactly like a human.

    Likely. But the point is not to walk toward the bear... the point is to not-run-away. The bear's instinct is then to chase something running away. And they're faster than us. The better strategy is to stand tall, even hold up one's arms, in order to look "big", something like the man with the camera is doing (and the bear retreats). That's what I would do. They could also make banging noises or shake a rattle if they have one (to use their fear of rattlesnakes).

    The animal world is all about primal instincts of domination and submission and control and territory and food supplies. One needs to simply understand the Languages of Nature .
