He took the fish and dragged the 2 stringers into the brush so we beat it back down the portage with everything,,as it took 2 trips and we were on our second,,got back out of the fly-in,,told the outfitter about it,,,later that summer, got a letter from him,,ours was the second time the bear had done it to fishermen that season,,3rd time later that spring the bear chased down some more fishermen,,,they had to go up and kill the bear to keep it from happening ever again. I have had a couple of other encounters of bears but nothing like that experience.
