Obviously he was hunting and had a gun.   Maybe he even had some pepper spray, who knows?!   I'd like to think I would have acted the same way.   He didn't even YELL!   Just a calm question, situation handled.   Well done, good for him!   

Not to draw an exact correlation to Timothy Treadwell, but he too would just talk and scold bears getting too close or out of hand.   It worked for him.....well almost.

Kind of like he'd been up that stand before. Might be interesting to face a camera over one's stand just to see what kind of wildlife is making itself at home when no one is hunting there. Of course, there is always the "gifts" they leave behind on the seat to give them away too. :o

As much as I would like to think of myself as a badass...when that bear actually started climbing the ladder, I would have freaked.
