Ohhh, bears. So curious.

What do you do when a nosy black bear decides to pay you a visit in your blind?

Having seen a ton of these types of encounters, most hunters freeze in place. And why wouldn’t you be paralyzed with fear? Even a smaller juvenile bear could rip you limb from limb.

That’s the story with today’s video, which comes to us from the Giving Back TV hunting channel on Facebook.

I can’t tell what the hunter is hunting for. The hashtags would seem to indicate that this was a bear hunt, but why wouldn’t he just shoot the bear? I’m inclined to think he’s deer or turkey hunting. Regardless, it’s tough to hunt when a curious black bear is sniffing around your blind.

Thankfully, it’s pretty rare to see a bear go from curious to aggressive. Most of these videos end with the bear getting bored or getting shooed away by the hunter, and today’s is no different.

Bears are curious creatures. Who knows why they do what they do?

We’re just glad nobody got hurt.
