Hm. Aren't you supposed to play dead if you see a bear?

Well, for some odd reason, this poll made me research the topic. If a bear is near you, the worst possible thing you could do is run away. You want to make yourself known to a bear, to let it know what you are. It sounds like the best choice for this poll is option 3, but if you are fishing, it may be best to stop and just say, "you can go fishing instead." Bears are protective of their food, so it may not be best idea to be taking from their food sources.

As for my answer, playing dead comes into play whenever a bear begins to attack.

So in the end, it doesn't seem like any of those poll choices are a really good idea. I'm not sure if I plan on exploring the wilderness anytime soon, but thanks for giving me the urge to study up on the behaviors of bears. It may be elementary, but I've never took the time to really think about it before.

If anyone else is interested, I looked up this page here:

I'm sure it would be of importance if you plan on hiking and such.

Well if I was fishing, I'm near water. I'll jump in the water and swim away (unless bears can swim?).

I don't think the OP was intending to be serious.

Err... haha! I guess I did go a little overboard there. I do that sometimes. Ah well, at least I learned something today.

I'd just keep fishing and chilling unless it keeps coming up to me. Otherwise, we're both just chillin' and doin our own stuff.

I'd yell "COME AT ME, BRO!!" and scare the bear off. And if it charged at me, then I'd shoot it in the head.
