It’s no secret that a bear’s sense of smell is one of its greatest assets. But combining that with its sense of curiosity can sometimes make for a tense situation. That’s what one hunter recently discovered while sitting in a treestand overlooking a bait pile.
Kudos to the inidentified bowhunter for staying so calm (and holding his camera so steady). As you can imagine, the hunter was a bit shaken after the bear climbed down and wandered off. Be sure to watch it all the way to the end.
