That story sounds fishy to me. (Maybe I should send it to the whitehouse). I'm not arguing he killed the bear just he danced around with it. A grizzley can cover 40 yards in 3 seconds in an all out charge. I suspect there was a little reconstruction going on. I won't argue which is better to carry as I'm guessing he wished he had a 460 Weatherby Mag when the thing busted out of the woods after him.
