I have no idea who Shockly is or even where he live's. I suspect from his long life in the wild up there dealing with things like this simply become second nature. Just another event in a life time of event's. My first visit into grizzly country up near Kalispell, Mont did spook me a bit. Spent 4 years up there and once comfortable, bear's didn't bother me anymore. Or course out and around in their home I kept an eye out all around me. Still never saw one! I strongly suspect fate simply wasn't ready to remove me yet. Hunting Moose up in Alaska one time I was hunting down this path through the brush and I occurred to me I might be on a bear trail, I turned around and left. I believe I was armed well enough to have handled a situation but then again until that moment hit's you have no idea what could and will happen. Like the couple from California that went up every summer. everything was well and good till it wasn't anymore. And all their knowledge of bears they may have had went right out the window with one old bear with bad teeth looking for a meal! I think that is fate in action. They tempted it and they found it!I agree, the emotional additive was way over the top. Doing the blame game rant against anti hunters was out of line. As an earlier poster pointed out, only two grizzly attacks in such a large area over such a long period doesn't paint the same picture as the almost daily encounter Shockey implies. I think we all know that as an owner/operator of a major outfitting operation in the area, Shockey would benefit financially from an increase in grizzly harvest quota. Those hunts can be upwards of $25K. I am not saying that's what motivated his rant ... but it is a possibility. I'm sure the antis will fire back with that ammo.
