Kids Running From a Bear | Southern Utah Family Hunting Adventures
Boy did we have a good summer season with the family! There's nothing we love more than being on the mountains chasing bear together.
The crisp air and stunning scenery at every turn simply can't be beat!
One weekend we had a fun chase and it's funny because they dogs blew up in the middle of the night and of course we yelled the typical "Shut up" out the camper window without thinking a thing of it.
The next morning we cut a road and the dogs exploded. We turned em loose + they chased that bear for 6 miles going in circles about 100 yards from our camp.... guess we figured out what they were barking at in the night!
When the bear finally treed, it was about a 200 yard walk from the truck after we drove down to the meadow to park.
We were walking in and some people that used to run hounds we had met the day before were also creeping into the tree. They waited for us and we walked in together.
We got our photos, told the dogs good job and were starting to leave the tree when that bear decided he was out of there!
Khloe and Ella were still with me capturing some final shots when the bear decided to bail.
It was headed the opposite direction, but Ella told Khloe to get out of the way and pushed her forward anyways. Khloe's eyes got huge and she took off toward the truck.
She didn't take one second to look back, she just ran + beat us all by a mile and hopped in as quick as she could!
She was positive that bear was coming for her and she wasn't sticking around to find out!
Needless to say, it was a good run for the dogs + an adventure for the kids and we all had a good time!
