Description:
No bear trip I have taken was more exciting than being in McNeil River State Game Sanctuary. Not only was I lucky enough to win a spot through the lottery but the salmon run came into peak numbers while I was there. The bears were plentiful and close encounters were many. This shot came when two bears started to argue over a prime fishing hole right in front of our viewing area. Although it didn't amount to more than words being said between the two bruins, it did offer an opportunity to photograph bears discussing the best fishing techniques.
