    There’s more of your story thats been left out than in .
    My biggest question is what happened?
    Maybe I didn’t get all of the download. But what I did get was,
    There was a fatal shot and the bear traveled 15 miles. Now, tracking something for 15 miles could take 8 hours OR it could take less or more time. I’m not to hung up on that.
    I would like to know more about your encounter and what happened that made it so unique.
    I believe “that” is the story, how does a fatally shot bear travel 15 miles?
    If you are given the opportunity please tell that part.
