I'm curious to know what happened to that bear's lower lip. Is it from a gunshot or did it get peeled back when the bear took a nosedive? Maybe it was cut by game officials to look at the teeth?

I am alos curious what would make this bear do it. Why was he so hungery? I wonder if he had some type of disease or something. I hope the bear is not destroyed. Whether he gets to keep it or the wildlife resource agency keeps it someone one should.

looked like the lower lip was a pretty clean cuti think if he took that bad of a fall there would be more blood if it was cut after death it wouldnt blled as much or maybe not at all depending on how long it was dead scary thinking about that happening to someone who carriea a smaller caliber or doesnt carry at all i dont think my three inch pocket knife would put him down thats for sure

No carcasses in the area, ears pinned back and the bear had grass in his molars really makes me wonder? An old bear but I wonder about intestinal parasites and possibly cataracts or other loss of eye sight caused by trauma or disease? Something isn’t right about this one.
Was the shooting justified?
YES, by all counts!

Try doing that with Bear spray! In the "Bush" I always keep my Ruger.44 Alaskan 2" with a cross draw holster on my pack for any similar ,unfortunate, occurences. Great shot(s) under pressure. The sign of a cool head on a true sportsman.

from azduane wrote 4 years 34 weeks ago

Trying to duplicate the shooting and fire the same number of shots in as short a time would be difficult if for no other reason that you wouldn't have the same adrenaline rush to push you to the limit. A jammed revolver, I don't know unless one of the empties backed out of the chamber and wouldn't let the cylinder revolve. I would suspect more of a "Holy sh**t!! I'm out of ammo!" to have occured. I feel sorry for the bear since it was almost definitely on it's last leg but it was his time and am glad Greg Brush came out of the experience alive but, I'm sure, changed to some degree.

We have the same problem here in Wa State, only with cougars. When they are hunted down and killed, they are usually old, and not able to kill their normal prey. The people here voted hound and baiting out a few years back. The cougar population is exploding. After a human attack, the game dept hires somebody with hounds, of which there are not many left.

from jimqinomc wrote 4 years 34 weeks ago

I expect the revolver jam was caused by the bullet in the last chamber moving forward in the case due the heavy recoil of the .454 (he had just fired five very heavy recoiling shots). When the bullet moves forward in the case it eventually jams the cylinder and does not allow it to move...therefore jammed revolver. It has happened to me, that's why I put an extremely heavy "factory crimp" on all of my very heavy .44 Magnum loads.

Yeah that jammed revolver really makes me wonder. I have only ever seen 2 revolvers jam in my short life. One was a cheapish off brand .22 that had been really used and had a bent part. The other was a quality colt that was either a .45 or .357. It was at my concealed carry class. We were qualifying and the wind was 30mph and up with real grainy red desert sand, and it was jamming occasionally when the guy pulled the trigger. That same day my dad's .357 Security Six that I almost exclusively use was a little gritty on the trigger pull.
I don't see how His gun jammed unless it was like jimqinomc said and the last bullet worked lose on the last round.
I know that the Titanium ultra-light revolvers can only shoot certain rounds cause the recoil will work them loose. I figure a 2" barreled Ruger Super Redhawk is like an ultra-light for a .454 Casuall, and if you shot that sucker one handed you wouldn't have a choice but letting the roll back on the recoil. So I guess that maybe possible.

Mr Brush, I'm glad to see you survived your experience to help educate others to the hazards of living in bear country. The condition of the animal explains a great deal as to the reason for the attack. Even the most powerfull and dangerous animals decline with age and illness and survive by taking advantage of easier to aquire meals. This was obviously not the wisest decision ever made by this bear. I commend you on your shooting skills with such a heavy weapon (I myself am more comfortable with my .44 mag). Your concerns are well placed as to the outcome of a confrontation between such an animal and another member of your family. It could have had a very different and tragic outcome. Years ago I remember an artical in F/S where the merits of different weapons where tested in the event of a simular situation and it was determined that MOST people would not have the presence of mind to steady and fire a large handgun or rifle effectively and that the best weapon to carry was a short barreled pump-action shotgun loaded with hi quality slugs for maximum stopping power, speed, and deployability. (This was before the advent of PEPPER/BEAR SPRAY) I guess what I'm trying to say is you prepair and train your family for the area you live in and the situations that could happen weather you live in the wilds of ALASKA or a BIG CITY. No-one lives in a vacume and just because your paranoid doesn't mean something or someone isn't out to get you. BE PREPAIRED.

Unfortunately due to the Alaska regs, a DLP animal belongs to the state, so all he will get to keep is the photos and the story, however hopefully the biologists will find what happened with the bear- this time of year you don't usually see ribs on a bear. Good Shooting Mr Brush!

Actually the regulation's probably a good idea. If you were allowed to keep it, there would always be cretins who would claim they were being attacked as a loophole so they could hunt whenever they wanted to. There's always that small group that spoils it for the rest of us.

Tales of survival... In most cases when people talk about their near death experiences they always lead into one statement that kills me everytime, and makes me wonder why people don't look up more often. "I’m not an exceedingly religious man, but someone was watching over me that day." The man that was looking over him was the Lord. For you Christians out there, I know you understand me when I say the Lord looks over us and protects us. I would say to Mr. Brush, you were lucky, and your praise and life should be thankful to the Lord. I am very glad he protected you and your family during those split seconds you had to react.

From the look of the lower lip in the picture it might have been injured and unable to feed well. It was starving and did what it thought it needed to do. Do not feel bad about killing it. Northwest of you a young man was killed on a seismic crew several years ago. It was winter and the crew walked past the bear's den. It let the first one pass and attacked and killed the second one with a bite to the skull. Twenty or so years ago a local outdoor writer, Craig Medred (ADN) had a bear charge him on the other side of the river from you and he was able to stop the charge with his Freedom Arms .454 Casul and one of the bullets backed out and jammed the cylinder. It takes a strong crimp to hold the bullets in the cases so they won't back out under recoil. It seems worse if you have a light grip on the pistol as it free recoils more violently. People will say you are lucky, but remember "chance favors the prepared mind". Sometimes the hide will be tanned and auctioned off by ADF&G if it is salvageable. How long did it take for the adrenalin to wear off?
