DRONE Records Conflict With BEAR!!! (4k)

While flying a drone to make a video of testing my rifle, a bear began destroying our camp – just yards away from where my wife and I were. This required some quick thinking (which ended in shooting the bear). After everything was done, I checked the drone’s video footage and found it had been recording the entire incident, so I am sharing this rather unusual footage.

This occurred on our trapline in northern Alberta. The rifle used was a single-shot Ruger No. 1, custom-chambered for the buffalo-hunting-era .45-120 cartridge, using 540 grain, cast bullets. The drone in play was a “DJI Mini 3 Pro.”
