A Bear Hunt in Athabasca (Beavers for Bait)
I shot this from up in a tree stand while documenting a bear hunt in Athabasca (Alberta, Canada). Beavers are used as bait, often tied up high so the bears will stand up to reach it. While they are standing, the hunter can gain a better idea of the size and the sex of the bear.
