From the Archives: Bear at­tacks

Outdoor Life - - CONTENTS -

One of the fix­tures of Out­door Life’s 119-year-his­tory is what for­mer ed­i­tor Vin Sparano called the “scalp-lifter” story: first-person ac­counts of bear at­tacks. As out­doors­men and women, we retell those thrillers, ex­ag­ger­ate close en­coun­ters, marvel over sur­vivors (see p. 49), re­mem­ber those who weren’t so lucky, and strate­gize end­lessly about self-pro­tec­tion in bear coun­try. Here’s a peek at that fas­ci­na­tion, as re­vealed by our archives.
